    I'm wondering the same, i want a good pair of bluetooth wireless headphones, does anyone know if the Sony DR-BT22 will work fine for a 3gs to play music? It's all i'm strictly looking to do and not make and receive calls with them.

    I have the motorola S9-- but I don't recommend. They pinch and are NOT comfortable.

    I am sorry to say the the BEST earphones I have used so for are the APPLE IN-EAR buds. I love them.

    They are way to pricey though--80 bucks-- and they they are not made of durable material.

    I'm about to get them from a reseller on eBay. S/He sells them for $35-40 and has good ratings.

    i just recieved a new set of koss headphones from their warranty department..... for a $100 set of headphones i purchased in the early 90's. they have a lifetime warranty which is worth as much as the headphones, imo!

    I've had 2 pairs of Vibe Duos break on me. They sent me a pair to replace the 2nd pair that broke (which they sent me to replace the 1st pair that broke), but I've left them in the box and am trying to sell them on Craigslist. I don't want to use headphones that break so easily from regular use. I babied them too.

    I bought a pair of Ultimate Ears 200v's when they were on sale for $25 on Amazon, but right now they're $85. I love them so far.

    I have the Duos (angled plug) and I an ruff on them. They go in my pocket every day all jumbled up and I haven't had a problem with them. I've had them over a year and I read all the stories about them before I bought mine, but I would recommend them to anybody.

    I've checked for those on eBay but I always wonder why they don't come in a retail box. Where do they get them? So I just decided to get them at the apple store. Didn't want to risk of getting faulty or fake headphones. I don't think you are eligible for the warranty with eBay purchases also.

    Anyways the apple in ear have good sound isolation, bass is kinda weak. The Bose in ear are really good, it just lacks sound isolation, mic and remote. I recommend both earphones!

    Apple earbuds suck. I use Skull Candy the most because they sound good and are comfortable. I have a few different types though and i also like Creatives earbuds but the ones i have are kinda big but sound really good. They have several different types that go in the ear just like the Skull Candy and the Sony's. Kinda pricey though.

    I havent tried These Sony buds yet because they are a bit pricey but hear they are good too. Still all these are cheaper than Apples buds.

    You can get them cheap on ebay though if you dont mind them coming from China.

    Consider yourself lucky.
    My first pair had the straight plug and the replacements have had the angled plug. Both times one of the earphones died. I'm not sure where the issue was with the first pair, but the damaged/defective point on the second pair was right at the angled plug.
    I would not recommend them due to the possible sketchiness. Fortunately, v-moda has great customer service. Unfortunately, I have a pair of vibe duos sitting in a box because no one is responding to my ad!

    Yeah that one thing that turn me on to them when I saw all the bad reviews about one bud going out was that they would replace them, sometimes of time out of warranty too.

    I'm using a pair of Sennheiser's hd 435 that I got for about €50. Now if you are more interested in earbuds (in-ear headphones) than in cans, you should check out this.

    I don't know about others, but for me Apple original headphones are my favorite one's of all. It fits my ears exactly, and I'm comfortable with it.

    Yeah they are fine if you don't care about sound quality.

    I didn't care about sound quality until I bought a nice pair of headphones.

    One must compare to know the difference.

    I just received my pair of 11mm Skullcandy Full Metal Jackets

    http://www.amazon.co.uk/Skullcandy-...4?ie=UTF8&s=electronics&qid=1246522013&sr=8-4

    bought off Amazon UK for £53 incl P&P. Having listened to them a an hour or two and made a few calls, I'm happy to say I love them. They sound great with solid, deep bass and clear mid/high range. The person I made a call to reported I sounded good and clear. They' re also comfy to wear. Longer use and durability aren't topics I cant comment on yet, but first impressions are very good.

    I got these two days ago also from Amazon UK, I really like them, they're metal but not heavy, are comfortable and the sound is good but quite heavy on the bass, I have the EQ Treble Booster switched on to counter it slightly. Skullcandys have got a reputation of breaking, but I took a gamble and these feel quite durable.
