I've had my iPod Touch for since it launched and the white earbuds that come with it just now broke. I know most people dont use the included buds anyways but i guess i was one of the few who do. I am looking for some very good, durable, headphones. I've thought about waiting for the new in ear headphones but i would rather have better ones than wait for them if they are not going to be what i hope they will be.

I have had the v-modas vibe duo, Skullcandy FMJ for iPhone and Etymotic ER-6i and It really depends on what sound you prefer.

For bass I would recommend the Skullcandy as their 11mm drivers kick a lot of bass, for warm sound and a little less bass go for the v-modas. 1 Word of warning for the v-modas, they plug tends to become loose from the cable after time. If you prefer neutral sterile sound then the Etymotics would suit you best.

Have a look at ilounge for some reviews.
