    Hey guys,

    I'm looking for a relatively cheap set of in ear earbuds. Preferably less than 30 dollars. I'm not to concerned about the complex sound quality, but more about comfort. The earphones that come with the iphone don't stay in my ear. If there are a really great set that are more expensive, feel free to suggest.

    Thanks for your help!

    JBuds J2 from Amazon $29.95. I have them in my ears all the time and they are very comfortable.

    phillips makes a really great in-ear headphone.

    kills JVC and Sony headphones around the same 20-30$ price range

    here is a link:

    if you buy online that's a GREAT price as they sell for double at places like Target/Wal-Mart

    Save yourself the hassle and just spend 30 more bucks to get the apple in ear headphones. I have had Vmoda's since about 2 weeks after the first iPhone came out, and was satisfied with their sound, but had to replace them constantly due to one of the earbuds eventually going out. I just recently replaced them with the new apple in ear buds. They sound good, and if I have any problems with them I can go exchange them locally at my apple store instead of waiting 2 weeks for vmoda to get me a new set in the mail.

    Does any of these earbuds control the iPod playback portion of the iPhone?

    The NuForce NE-7M are definitely the best for $50. They are $49.99 on Amazon. link

    The NuForce NE-7M does.

    Get the NuForces

    I just got mine a few days ago.

    They are reeeally nice, fit perfectly, and sound amazing. They also have a mic that is very good, and is shaped like the apple earbuds that the iphone came with (just a little non-obtrusive stick).

    While I can't speak about their longevity, they have gotten really good reviews on amazon. Highly recommended.

    The Zagg z.buds have a mic and control pod. The initial production run gave some people issues with breaking, but I hear they've been re-designed to fix the problems. I have the original design and haven't had any issues and my friend has the new ones and is happy as well.

    They are running a 30% off special right now which brings the mic version to $56 and the headphone-only to $42. The 30% off applies to everything they sell including the protection skins and all that. Pretty good deal IMO.

    Read the review in my sig if you're interested.
