The Spectra is an earbud set that features a remote bud to control calls with an in-line mic. The Spectra sounded much like earbuds in this range should sound, and though I didn't get an exact price scale, most of the products mentioned here were under $50.

Many vendors this year breaking new ground into lifestyle or exercise-enhancing gear. iFrogz featured an armband case and earphones for active lifestyle (Motion/Flex). Other accessory products on display included a new USB charging nodule and several new attractive iPhone case designs...
