    I love my apple earbuds. I have severe systemic latex allergy IgE and the earbuds with remote and mic do not cause me to react. Unfortunately I lost my original pair and unwittingly purchased some counterfeit ones before I knew that only authorized dealers can sell new apple products. Not only did they sound horrible, but they caused a very ugly rash on my face and throat. And they looked exactly the same as the real thing. Make sure you get the real thing from an authorized dealer and you should be fine.
