    I just ordered shure's e2c earphones. I never tried ones that go inside the ear canal and am afraid that I might not like them. What earphones do you use?

    I'm actually using the Zune earbuds right now because I have them handy and I don't want to draw iPod Attention.

    I've got a pair of Apple In-Ear Headphones, which sound lovely but have truly crappy fit.

    I'm probably going to be saving up for a nice pair of Shure or Sennheiser in-ear headphones, whichever are better.

    I've always just used the ones that come with it. I have another pair of headphones, but they're reserved for the laptop.

    When not using the earbuds I use Bose QC3 headphones.

    Sennheiser HD580's all the way. World's finest headphone. For buds, the Etymotic ER-4Ps. Nuttin but the best...

    A pair of Etymotic ER-6i's. Love them to pieces. They go inside your ear, but you need to get the propper sized flange to make it comfy. They have great sound isolation, and pure sound. They use low powered drivers so that the ipod can drive them easily, creating the best sound. mmmm. cant wait to try them out on the new touch.

    Been using a pair of Shure E4c for over a year with my 5G iPod. They're expensive (cost more than my iPod!) but excellent. Plan to carry on using them with the Touch.

    Sennheiser all the way.

    CX300 are my favourite inear phones.Yes there are better solutions out there, but I can't aford them. Watch out for the fakes though!

    At home I use the HD 435 headphones, they seem an outstanding product to me.

    And then I have 2 more from sennheiser, the PMX60 and MX300. The first are great value for money, the second, are OK and I like them especially for not drawing iPod attention in the public.

    A pair of EX90's. I tried them vs. the CX300 and they sounded a lot better to my ears (much better than the EX71's too).

    +1 .. I am on my second pair of cx300, first one broke at the seam joining the rubber cord to the earpiece, it had a matte back, got a replacement under manufacturers warranty and this one has a shiny black back :S

    both bought at the PCworld store so can't be fakes, the last one was made in Japan and this one is made in China :S

    but one of the best earphones around ... I also own a pair of super.fi 5 pro's but I don't use them often ..

    I love the Xtrememac FS-1s that I have. You can get foam inserts (similar to ear plugs with a hole down the center) these make ear buds comfortable, and create a good seal so you get better bass.
