Functionality here is pretty run of the mill, but you'll need to make sure that you select the right model for your phone.

Inside the box is a tough, square-shaped zip case coated with smooth fabric and red stitching. Opened up, the headphones and inline remote are neatly packaged inside. Fortunately, they are just as easy to put back in as they are to remove from the case. Lastly, there are four different sizes of ear tips included – in case the defaults aren't a good fit.
