    The right ear in the white headphones that came with my iPod touch isn't working very well, which is quite an annoyance seeing as I listen to music and watch videos every day on my iPod.

    Do you have any headphone recommendations? I'd like to spend less then $50 but get a nice pair of headphones, maybe In-Ear, that will last a long time and have good sound.

    I'd also like to buy them from Amazon. Any suggestions?

    Thanks!

    If you would give up the in-ear, I'd recommend the Panasonic RP-HTX7s...Sennheiser's CX300 are worth mentioning or finding a pair of e2s

    I would try sony

    I and several friends use Sony mdr v150 headphones and love them. The only minus is that if you wear them for more than 2 1/2 hours, your ears start to hurt. I take a 15 min break and I'm good for another 2 hours or so. Sound quality is amazing. If you looking for earbuds, go apple in-ear.

    I concur I own a pair of CX 400 which sound pretty good and worth the 30 dollars I paid for them though I still prefer my over the ear Sennhaiser PK 100's over my cx 400's ( in ear )

    I also second that. The Sennheiser stuff is awesome. You should be able to find something at a good rate on Amazon. I've always felt a bit more comfortable buying Sennheiser headphones/earbuds because of my experience with their pro products in the studio.

    Never gone wrong with Skullcandy, had them for my past 4 iPods to replace the crappy apple ones. They can be found for $15 at Fred Meyer, and have some even higher models for $50, but IMHO, the $15 ones sound GREAT! Excellent value for the $$

    R U serious about better headphones?

    If you are, go to www.head-fi.org and do some searching and reading. You can do a lot better than stock and the recommendations in this thread for little money.

    These [http://www.amazon.com/Koss-KSC75-Portable-Stereophone-Headphones/dp/B0006B486K] for instance, are considered exceptional for their price ($16). So are these for $10-15 [http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_ss_0...ords=jvc+marshmallow&x=0&y=0&sprefix=jvc+mar]. If you want to keep portable and can go up to $50, these should knock your socks off: http://www.amazon.com/Grado-i-Headp...1?ie=UTF8&s=electronics&qid=1252521366&sr=1-1.
