    Hey all,

    Just wanted to know if you guys will switch the original earphone with other brands or just stay with the white earphone? ;)

    White Skullcandy 50/50 are my primary buds. I use the Apple buds for my walkie at work.

    I've never used the Apple earbuds for any of my iPods or iPhones. They're always still wrapped and in mint condition when it comes to resell my items. I have about 10 pairs of so-so/OK headphones that I'll use. Most are Skullcandy's since they're cheap but I have some Monster Turbines I use as my primary headphones.

    I use the more expensive Apple earphones with the little rubber buds (why these don't just come standard I don't know - well, yes I do it's to maximize profit).

    I hate the earphones that come with the iPhone. The "other" Apple earphones stay in my ear much better and sound reasonable. Of course they have the integrated volume and mic also. My only beef with them is the little rubber buds kept falling off (and Apple doesn't sell replacements), I finally ended up putting a dab of rubber cement on the little shafts and thus glued the rubber buds in place. Have not had one pop off since.

    I don't mind the white earphones except for that fact that they always break on me within a couple of months

    Once you try noise-cancelation earbuds you can never go back to the stock Apple ones. They will sound like low bit-rate garbage.

    I use my Klipsh S4 earbuds as my main set and the white apple earbuds to listen to podcasts before I go to sleep (since I tend to fall asleep with them on.)

    I use the original for calls in the car and Beats Tours for when I'm listening to music. I'm tempting to purchase a pair of those Apple premium earbuds.

    Ever since my first iPhone these have stayed in the box. Wish they were sold separately and the iPhone itself is cheaper =\
