Turned out to be surprisingly difficult to find comfortable ones that had controls I was looking for. Here were the winners I now use:

They're lighter than wired pair I was using, extremely comfortable and have a high-quality feel to them, and controls are very logically arranged (so easy to quickly rewind when needed). Sound fine to me for podcasts and audiobooks. And, they were also only $30, which can't be beat.
