My daughter needed a pair of wired headphones to use with her smartphone and wanted wired earbuds instead of wireless. These are what I got for her. They seem to work well and have good sound for her to listen to her music. She can take phone calls with the earbuds in but hasn't yet. These earbuds are great for the office to listen to music to block out other folks on their phones. The price is good, too. At this price you could get a couple of pairs so you had back up in the truck and another set in the office, if you wanted.
