    uhm does anyone know where i can buy good earphones
    im kinda looking for the in ear ones
    but basically just one that works well (ones for ipods i guess)
    im not sure i trust ebay all that much
    but if theres nowhere else (i could try a store, but like, theyre much more expensive i think)
    then ill just grab a random one off ebay (the problem is, i dunno if its fake or something)

    When buying from eBay, just check the seller's feedback, before bidding or buying ... a high percentage ... 98%+ ... usually means you'll be okay ...

    Plus, only pay with PayPal, and only buy an item listed as New ... that's what I do ...

    Plus, fake headphones? ... is there any such thing?

    Yup, Chinese knock-offs of Chinese original products, you could end with prodcut that will break in 3 days, try going to Radioshack, might not be the cheapest place -down here at least- but you'll know you're buying a legitimate product.

    Why don't you just visit some local shop with tech. equipment..It wouldn't be too expensive to get it there..

    And I remember I saw "iPodish" earphones on DealExtreme, there were good feedbacks on those, so try there, search a bit..It was some time ago, that I've came across that..

    Give target a try, I saw some Sony and Philip earphones there similar to the ipod ones, cept they were uh colorful, I think there are neutral colors of em though. If I didn't have these iPod earphones I most likely would have bought one of those.

    NO. BOSE IN-EARS ARE OVERRATED AND NOT EVEN WORTH IT. IT'S A FACT, NOT AN OPINION.

    And I'd rather get a Shure earphone. Same price, double the value. Ultimate ears fi.5s' are fine too.

    Ultimate Ears Super Fi.5 Pros are the best $180 I've ever spent.

    Oh. If that's the case, JVC marshmallow earphones. They're cheap, around $20 in my area, but I hear they sound good for the price.

    There's a review for it.
