    The new rumored headphones look interesting. I hope to like them more than the current ear buds. But I generally use my over the ear (skull candy) headphones. However, they are hard to use with my phone because they don't have a mic.

    I use over-ears as well, but didn't mind using the standard Apple buds in the past. Since getting my tragus pierced though, they make my ear sore after using them too long.

    Apple's earbuds hurt my ears. I have Bose QC, and I also have some cheap in-ear phones.

    That's all I use are Apple's ear phones. They work, and they don't cost extra.

    I have over ear beats for when listening to music at home, or when I want better quality, I use my Apple earphones when exercising/going to school and need the portability + I notice that the earbud style stays cleaner than gel earphones that go in ear, and out of all of the earbud designs I have used apples hurt the least over a long period of time.

    I'm still using the apple headphones off and on mainly because no one can make a good pair of Bluetooth headphones

    Monster Turbines 'in ear' are my choice right now.

    Etymotic ER-4P. I've tried a few including multi driver ones and have decided that I won't find anything that suits me better. I used to use the somewhat less resolving, cheaper and more ergonomic Etymotic ER-6i, but unfortunately these were discontinued.

    I find Apple's earbuds to be uncomfortable and have really bad sound isolation. Bought a pair of Sennheiser IE8's a couple of years ago. It's surprising how much more sound you hear with a decent pair.

    I use the Apple ones. They're the only ones that seem to stay in my ears while I'm at the gym.

    Can't use earbuds myself, I have a nice set of Sennheiser over ear cans.

    I always use them and they are indeed very durable and the sound is not bad for someone who's not an audiophile. I hated the new leaked design though and I think it's just a prototype that Apple may have dumbed. Doesn't look like a product Made by Apple.

    I'm currently using the Sennheiser IE80's in-ears. The sound quality is the best I've experienced from a set of IEM's.

    LOVE EM' :D

    Not a big fan of Apple's pack-in earbuds, but i do like these Apple in ears. Best compromise between; price, quality, comfort, size and noise isolation.

    Hells no. I use a pair of in-ear Klipsch. They were about $70 and sound amazing.

    I use those as well. They sound so much better than the pack-in earbuds and I do not have to turn up the volume as much.

    I never ever use them. Don't even know where mine are. I have some nice big Sony DJ headphones if I want to listen to headphones.
