    Can any recommend a good pair of ear-buds? I'm planning to use them with my Droid 4. I was looking at these: RUK30k In-Ear Headphone - earbuds & in-ear headphones - headphones - products - koss headphones I like the Koss brand and I like the "bolt" design of those but they're $29.99 which seems high to me. I want a pair of ear-buds that are comfortable and also have good sound quality. Right now I'm using some clip-on over the ear headphones that I like but the padding is deteriorating and there's no way to fix them or get replacement pads that fit so I'd either have to buy a new pair of those or just use that money for some ear-buds. Thanks.

    Audio technica ckm50s are a good baseline ear bud in my opinion, IF you can find them. They were a pretty popular FOTM a while ago at a certain audiophile forum. The price...$25 at lowest?
    Just realized this post got completely annihilated by ICS's autocorrect...

    Breakfast beats worrying.

    Koss is great my dad uses his set daily and has been for around 3 years with problem. I find coby to be a durable brand too.
