    The remote and mic is part of the detachable cord. That means that you can use the detachable cord as an iPhone adapter for any standard headphones. I have these headphones and they are GREAT. My daughter has the Skullcandy with the built in mic/controls, and the Philips / Oneil sounds better and is more functional (due to the detachable cord/controls) for $60 less. I'm glad Apple stocked these.

  • the remote is part of the cord which connects the the audio device to the jack on the headphones. it does not detach from this cord.
