    I installed CherryRPayer and plugged in an old, cheap pair
    of earbuds and the sound is awesome. Especially the base
    that is weak with Droids limited sound system and, of course
    the stereo.

    So, I was wondering if anyone has a suggestion for a good set
    of earbuds that are not terribly expensive and are comfortable to wear.

    THIS IS AN AWESOME PHONE

    I know you said "not terribly expensive", but if you listen to a lot of music or are looking for a comfortable and great-sounding experience this is probably the best investment you can make! Do NOT buy some cheap crappy iPhone style buds - they will only hurt your ears.

    Buy one of the "Shure" types that can take a variety of attachments - the compressible foam pads are the best - they completely block out all ambient noise. Bass and overall sound is amazing, even in the lower-end models...

    I use the Shure SE310: Amazon.com: Shure SE310 Sound Isolating Earphone - Black: Electronics

    Great sounding headphones, but for a bit more money, I wish I had gone with the Shure SE420's: Amazon.com: Shure SE420-K Sound Isolating Earphones (Black): Electronics
    Either way, for ~$200 or less you can get yourself one of the best sounding pair of headphones on the market... at least for in-ear headphones.

    The other great thing is that they are really lenient about replacing damaged headphones. I've owned 4 pair of Shure headphones over the years (originally when I had an iPod like 5 years ago) and have had loose wires in two (I know... not the best thing to be admitting, but keep reading!) and both of those pair I sent back to Shure within the 1-year manufacturer warranty. Within two weeks I had a BRAND NEW pair of the same headphones, at no cost or charge to me except for the shipping it cost to send the damaged pair back. Their customer service is outstanding and I am a big fan of theirs.

    If you want a great pair of headphones that you can trust to last you a while and sound amazing, look up Shure's products.

    If you are looking for earbuds, I recommend Grado, Ultimate Ears or Klipsch. Some of the more expensive Sennheiser buds are fantastic. The shure buds sound good, but they hurt. If you want clarity, by all means, stay away from the Bose earbuds... Bose makes the common mistake of confusing "more bass" with "better sound quality". Stay away.

    I decided to be cheap and just settled for the Shure SE210s - they're quite good enough and I'm not afraid of losing them. ~$100 in various places online...

    Vmoda > *

    For price, comfort, style, and most importantly SOUND Quality, you can't beat Vmoda. Best buds I have ever owned or tried out. Makes buds that cost $$ more, sound like garbage.

    For the absolute best, Etymotic Research ER4P. They are not cheap, but they are awesome. Amazon had the best deal when I bought mine for $167 and free shipping. Don't listen to me, check the reviews on these. Audiophiles know more than me. All I know is these work great and are high quality.

    I know that everyone posting "in ear" buds do so with the best of intentions.

    However, they're not for everyone. I tried them and did not like the feel, the noises I heard whenever the cord was brushed against.....etc.

    Also if using them in the gym you'll get a LOT of noise when using the treadmill, elliptical or any machine.

    Some have reported hearing their heatbeat and respiration when using the complete isolation, in the canal earbuds.

    My ex is an Audiologist. She made me earmolds which basically "screw into" your ear canals and then have a cup where the standard earbuds fit into. They also had a "breathing" holes so they would not completely isolate the canal. Professionals in the hearing arena reccomend against complete isolation. This design is what you see musicians wearing on TV. This has replaced their "feedback" monitors you used to see (the small speakers on the edge of the stage facing the performer).

    While the professional earmolds worked well they diminished the sound output of the buds. The professional musicians use custom earbuds with breathing holes and ear "speakers" costing several thousand of dollars per ear.

    You need to try a cheap pair of in-the-ear buds to see if you can live with them, not everyone can. I can't.

    I think they are really meant solely for relaxing (doing nothing) and listening to music.

    I've been through every make and model listed here. Hooked them all up to my ex wifes $20,000 acoustic analyzer and the B&O's came out way ahead.

    YMMV........

    +1 on the Shure's.I have the triple driver model which cost more than my Ipod. Bass is superior. These work great on the Droid. and they cost more than the Droid

    I agree with Harrison on the Skull Candy's. I needed a low cost set of ear buds with good sound and ability to block out noise (while sitting at daughter's indoor swim practices) and these fit the bill. I got them for $20 at Best Buy a few months ago, but saw them in a black friday ad (for Staples or a similar store) for $9.99. You get 3 different sized ear pieces made of soft rubber that work like a stethoscope earpiece. They do a much better job in both sound reproduction and noise blocking than the similar priced JVC units that use a foam ear insert. I would definitely buy these again if I needed another pair and not have to worry about losing or breaking a more expensive set of headphones.
