    I decided to listen to some music on the iPhone today using my Sony earphones, only to discover that my earphones don't fit in the bumper's cut-out. I then tried to use Apple's white earphones that they included with the phone, but they fall out of my ears every time I move my head.

    Anyone here using any decent quality headphones that fit the bumper's cut-out? A mic (like on iPhone's earphones) would be a plus. I'm looking for something in the price range of $20-$50, because they usually last me around six months before they break.

    I use JLab J3 model earbuds, as does my husband, and the narrow plug fits fine into the bumper. Picked up on Amazon for around $25, if I recall, when I realized how much I hated the Apple earbuds. Sound quality is pretty good--way better than Apple's. No mic on these though.

    No mic but the Monster Turbines fit and I like them quite a bit.

    Sennheiser MM50iP fits, has a mic, works great, and sounds great.

    These fit perfectly with the bumper and have a GREAT sound (and also have been given great reviews on the Apple Store). They also have the 3 button remote/mic just like the Apple headphones, and they work flawlessly. I really enjoy my set. They need some burn-in time, but they're getting better and better.

    And they're very comfortable -- coming from someone who doesn't like most ear buds.

    Agreed. They're the most comfortable in-ear headphones I've ever used.
