I absolutely love these headphones. I bought them to replace a (still working) set of Beats Mixrs. The only thing that disappoints is the lack of an inline mic and volume control on the shorter cord. I find it strange that it was not included, since the shorter cord is obviously for a portable device like an iPod or iPhone. Please consider releasing a cord like this. I would purchase one in a hot second, and if you check the forums you'll see I'm not the only one. Thanks for your consideration, and have a great day.
