    In-ears or regulars?
    I have a 10 gig 3G iPod and I need to buy a new pair of headphones.

    Which would you chose? In-ears (the ones the mini have) or the regular???

    I've got the original Quiet Comforts which are very big so I just use them when I am travelling or need silence. For quality I pop in these bad boys

    Take a look at iPod Lounge. There are reviews of several headphones there: http://www.ipodlounge.com/

    Bose products are overpriced for what they do. AcousticWave technology my ***. Bose sells an image. They're an imitation of sound, really.

    Pick up a pair of $30 Sennheiser HD 202s or $60 HD 212 Pros if you want decent sound for not much money.

    bose are really overpriced
    you ever notice that bose never has the specs of their speakers/headphones?
    its cuz theyre horrible.
    bose is a name
    just like gucci etc
    same product as a cheaper one and yuou can get a better quality for the same price

    the ONLY reason id get that bose headphones is cuz theyre light and comfy

    For all of you Bose haters, who probably don't even own a pair of the QuietComfort 2 headphones...and yet you bash them, read here: http://reviews.cnet.com/Bose_QuietCo...2.html?tag=tab

    Before you keep bashing the headphones, go buy a pair and try them on a well-recorded mp3 and you will see how clear they are. I would never buy the rest of Bose's products, but the headphones DO sound awesome, they are not just a name.

    For in-ear headphones, go for:
    1: Shure E5c, or the cheaper (forgot the model) version of those
    2: Bang & Olufsen In-ear headphones (about 120-150 USD) (very good quality product)
    3: Or pick up a pair of the Sony Fantopia (sp?) headphones. Bought my mom a pair of the 40 dollar ones, and they are pretty good for their size and price.

    the in-ears never seem to stay in my ears, like I have freak ears or something. I want to try those Bose ones though, dual purpose really, good sound and keep my ears warm, too bad they cost nearly as much as my IPod.

    CNet is hardly a place to get accurate and impartial reviews.

    Bang and Olufsen, Harmon Kardon, AKG, Sennheiser, Shure. Go with names that are actually interested in the science of sound. Not a company that spends half of their time and money on advertising.

    even bang and olufsen are a bit overpriced/sound quality wise as well. theyre more stylish speakers that are probably better than bose but still you pay for the hand made quality.

    Go find a store that sells them, and see if they will let you return them if they aren't want you expected, and if so, then try them out. One thing that people do, is they get these crappy downloads and listen to those downloads with the QuietComfort 2's and they think the headphones suck, because they can hear the imperfections in the song, so perfectly, which is such an oxymoron.
    Thanks,
    Mike

    I have about $50 to spend. Its not alot, but its some sweet moolah. Also I love the look and sound of the Apple Regulars, but the in ears look a bit too risky. The Bose line is way too much money, my friend has them and they play well...but would I spend 150? Nah. We shall see.
