I just got the new Apple In Ear headphones w/mic and they are excellent. Really great treble and midrange. The bass is better than what I expected considering some reviews said they had no bass at all. I'm guessing maybe they did not have them inserted right or they were not able to achieve a good seal with the included ear plugs. I think they sound fantastic. The only real complaint I have with them is the cord makes noise when it rubs against anything but that's to be expected with any in ear headphone.

I tried those out and they didn't fit right in my ears. I wish they did. They looked and felt real but they just kept falling out.

I got the Sennheiser MM50 Ip headphones with mic and they sound just as good as some $300 headphones I've tried. Unfortunately, they barely come in under $100 but they've been worth it for me.

I thought I'd seen those Sennheisers for less. I've also seen good reviews on Amazon and elsewhere for the Maximo iMetal series. They make an in-ear and regular-style earbud version. List is $70-80, but I think the non-in-ear were on sale for around $40 in a few places.

Sounds like a good deal!

My wife bought me a pair of Shure E210s for Christmas. She didn't realize that I was looking at the Apple In Ear ones. I had to get the Music Phone adaptor so I could answer calls and switch songs. I tried a couple different ear plugs and could never really find a good fit for me. Plus, the cables seemed a little still/thick. I ended up getting the Apple ones and they fit and great. Plus, the wires are lightweight and unobtrusive. Anyone one a pair of slightly used E210s?

My Skullcandy FMJs have broken twice and their warranty exchange is horrible and slow. Same with V-Moda btw.
