why are there no decent android earphones with basic remote functionality?

I've been an android user since day one, and a very satisfied one at that since 4.0.

But there's one thing that annoys me to no end: I cant find decent, stylish earphones with a remote. Not just a play / accept call button, but also with volume control.

My G1 had it, but since then, no phone I bought had this functionality. The included earphones on my LG P970 didnt include volume control, and were just plain crap. My current Sony's earphones are ugly as sin and dont have volume control either.

Basically i want what seems basic earphone remote functionality that apple already serves for years, in a stylish package for an affordable price.

It isnt there, for android, so it seems and drives me insane. Why can nobody get this basic functionality right outside Apple?
