Can anyone suggest some good earbuds to purchase?  Mine are starting to break (the ones that came prepackaged with the Zune) and I would like to get a fairly cheap, sturdy model that is comfortable in my ears.  With the old earbuds, the covers would sometimes come off in my ear which would be really annoying!

Shure makes fantastic earphones and I recommend the SE110 Sound Isolating Earphones. My sister has those and they are super comfy and very worth it. They are a bit pricey ($119.99 on the site) and I don’t remember how much she got them for. If you are looking for cheaper ones, the Sony Fontopia headphones are my next recommendation. One of my friends has them and they’re about $30 and not too bad (according to my friend, haha). Sorry I don’t have my own personal recommendations, but I’m looking for earphones too since my iPod earphones are starting to peel…

These are the earbuds I have.

as you can see, they are inexpensive, and they are the best earbuds/headphones I have ever owned. the sound comes through with almost the same amount of clarity that Bose proclaims. and they are only $15 to boot.

Oh, btw, they also come with three different size adapters to fit any size ear. I even find them very comfortable for workouts and jogging. I had to buy a second pair because my cats got the adapters for the first one, and i needed to change them. even without the adapters, they are still relatively comfortable.

If you are going to spend $100 bones you should just get the Bose earbud headphones.

I am not exactly sure what “fairly cheap” would mean, but here are some good earbuds going from price low to high:

- Here are some really cheap ones that I happen to think fit the ear very well:

- Here are some that are kind of middle priced:

- And here are some fairly expensive, but still not hugely priced:

Hope this helps!

Purjewl’s recommendation is the best for cheap buds.  Obviously the huge size of them has something to do with that, but if you don’t like the size of those ones I’ve liked any Skull Candy buds I’ve used:

If you’re going to spend $100+, Shure is the only way to go.  I’m going to have to recommend the same set as Jess1ca:

Regardless of how much you spend, get in-ear buds.  They’re far more comfortable when you get used to them, and they block out external sound so 1) your music sounds much cleaner and 2) because of that you can turn the volume down a little to help save your hearing.

Please edit your previous post, don’t double post.
Anyway I have the same eardops as you although my current eardops are maybe a little bit better. I get them from my W300i, they can give me a good quality sound. I’m happy with it! wink
