I use the older while Samsung earphones (I can't find a pair of earbuds that I like more!), but they don't have a mute feature. This functions as a solution for that perfectly. It's super easy and convenient to hit mute real quick, and turn the game/music up or down really fast if I need to hear my Wife or Kid talking to me, without pulling out an earbud. Definitely recommend this thing. It's not as snug and feels like it would come off pretty easy, but it doesn't.
