I agree, apple's new headphones are amazing. Very comfortable and easily sound 10x better then the old pack ins.archurban said:it's good question. I have bunch of earphones, headphones like shure E2C, Bose Quiet Comfort 2, Sennheiser PX 200, sport MX75.....
but Apple new earphone is most comfortable. yeah, it's strange.
Apple's new headphones don't fit into my ear well so I can't even jog with them on. But it doesn't matter because they sound like total *****. Maybe I'm too much of an audiophile but I can't bear to listen to them. Lows are just garbled.apunkrockmonk said:I agree, apple's new headphones are amazing.

(Maybe mine were broken).
The old ones used to hurt my ears too... the new ones are great though.
the problem I've found with those and the EX-71's, is that they have crappy build quality. I went through 3 pairs (thank goodness for extended warranties) within a year. And let me tell you, I'm not hard on headphones, by any means. I decided to bite the bullet and get a decent set of 'phones so I got the Shure E3c's from my work (CC), and couldn't be happier. I take them everywhere, and they have no indication of ever giving in.Quboid said:My personal favourites are the Sony MDR-EX81LP Bud-Style Stereo Earphones, they are the by far the most comfortable i've owned and they sound AMAZINING!!, i can almost say they were the perfect pair of headphones. Little things like the extra base, the perfect lenght of the cord from one ear to the other, three diffferent sized changable buds, etc.
THe only reasons i dont call them perfect are:
1. the noise cancelling can be dangerous depending on where you are.
2. The cord (wire coating) is pretty soft. (i rolled my chair on mines and that was the end of it).
Nice head fones, buy them. Just be carefull with them.
