I see these have a microphone and remote buttons, which annoy the hell out of me. But they also have a replaceable cable. Does Westone sell a cable without the remote for a reasonable price?

Good USB 3.0 microSD card reader?

Does anyone have a favorite USB 3.0 microSD card reader? It doesn't need to have an SD card slot, but fine if it does.
