I love my Grado SR-60s. They're the low-end model of a high-end headphone/audio company. They're not noise-cancelling, they're small enough to fit in a pocket, and they sound fucking great.

The only downside is that they bleed sound easily, but that's kinda what you want to do to society sometimes.

Grant, I've tried a number of different earbuds from expensive to cheap and the hands down best price/value I've found are the Klipsch S4i. The produce very nice sound, comfortable, have phone/mic function, and are reasonably priced ($99). Of course these things are subjective but I would certainly recommend them. http://reviews.cnet.com/headsets/klipsch…

These things are the bizniss:

I have lost all of my iphone earbuds (which double as product placement because nobody in their right mind would buy WHITE earbuds) and all I use now are these Bose things which I value above my sunglasses, iPod, dog, and breakfast. I have the old ones that don't have the volume control on the cable.

By the way... they don't fall out of your ears when you're running, riding your bike, hauling a carcass, etc.

i like the AIAIAI's, but they might be a little too noise-cancelling for you. i have the sunset gradients, and they sound terrific and i don't have to turn them up very loud at all.

Thinksound TS-02. You can get them with or without a mic and with or without the over the ear hooks for running, they sound really good, and if you send them your old headphones to recycle, they will give you a 15% discount.

Thank you for posting this Grant, I've been ranting against those fucking iPod earbuds for as long as I can remember.

I would never use expensive earphones/buds for running or exercising, so I would recommend two sets -- an expensive one for the coffee shop and a cheap one (or several cheap ones) for running. When running, the sound quality for anything other than midrange is pretty irrelevant.

I like these cheap ones. They don't fall out of my ears (thanks to the hooks), they are pretty comfortable, and the sound is OK for exercising. They're also really cheap, so you can buy 4 pairs for about $25. I'm on my second pair, and the first pair lasted about 2 years of pretty regular use until I stepped on the bud.

This is going to sound really bitchy, but why is music just a thing to make other people/things go away?

After being disappointed by the cheap faux apple earbuds, I'm really happy with the sound from these $6 Motorolas: http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B001FSSANU…

If that link doesn't work, they're called "Motorola EH25 Blue Stereo Ear Bud Headset".

Good luck!

the stranger should supply a pair of sony studio headphones upon any employment dealing with music. Sony MDR-7506 are the best for the price headphones you can get. earbuds are garbage. it's like listening to music through your macbook and reviewing it.
