I agree with Detonation. I'm still using my earbuds from my first iPod. But I did have the Bose in-ear and regular headphones. The in-ear got worn out and the line by the audio jack started ripping, don't know how, but I've had em for a few years. I can't wear the big ones at work because I have to hear people sometimes. I'd like to hear how the Skull Candy in-ear ranks against the expensive ones too, because I was thinking about grabbing a pair of them from Best Buy last time I was there last time.
