I use a set of Panasonic in-ear headphones .. They cost around $15 and sound awesome.

I find that after wearing the standard issue iPhone headphones for any length of time, my ears actually get sore. I have a pair of Shure SE210's. These are in-ear, provide excellent sound quality and comfort. The cable is very short, with a 30" or so extension. There is a mic adapter available on their site that replaces the extension. These are a little pricey - $179 for the earphones and an extra 30 or 40 dollars for the mic adapter, but well worth it, IMHO.

If you think that is expensive check this one out...

Anyways to the OP I would get these. Not sure on the pricing but it's not over 100 bucks. Maybe 40 if I remember correctly.

Yes I know he wants something for 20 bucks but they are of poor quality and you get what you pay for. You learn these things the hard way, after they break in like less than a year. >_>"

Out of your league but Bang & Olufsen A8s have great sound quality but cost too much. I have been using them for two years now.

What type of music do you listen to?

Sony has some good "Bass boost" ones too. I find their earbud prices vary. I've seen the exact same ones around $25 at one store, and $10 in another.

Any headphones by Shure will kill any of the overpriced products made by B&O,Bose etc. For under $20 you should be able to pick up some sennheiser's which sound pretty good for the money but this is in britain i odnt know about the US
