    The headphones that come with the phone aren't really good to me. Maybe its my ears but they always fall out and just don't feel comfortable. Im wondering what options I have.

    Literally millions!!! Lol. I bought a cheap pair that wrap around my ears for $5 and they work great... Its all a matter of what style and how much you want to pay

    Just be careful to check that the plug is compatible with whatever case you might be using.

    Fair enough. Well any standard 3.5mm headphone jack will fit, now you just gotta find one to your liking. Good luck

    FWIW, I just picked up a pair of Ironman earbuds last week from Best Buy. They were on sale for $30. The way they are designed, you put them into your ear at an angle and then you twist it and it locks in place. Very comfortable to wear and won't fall out. The rubber ear plugs just snap onto the ear bud itself and if you remove them, then they are standard earbuds. The package insert also says that if the rubber ear plugs doesn't fit properly, then they want you to email them a picture of your ear with a quarter held up next to it and they will send you a different size.

    I use the Skull Candy ear buds when working out, like them allot, great bass. Can get them at Best Buy for around $19. For those occasions when I want high quality sound, can beat my Bose QuietSound II's

    Personally, I would have held out for the Avenger earbuds :)

    Those are the same one I use when out riding my bike on the trail. Never had a problem with them. I actually used the stock Samsung ones yesterday since I was expecting a phone call and they worked pretty good as well. Skull candy still better though for fitting purposes.
