    Separately they're overpriced and fail.

    Ebay is your friend

    You can get some official ones for really cheap, like £2 ( $3-$4 ? )

    Also: Sennheiser CX300 and Sony MDR-EX71SL, if you don't mind a bit of in-ear.

    apple earbuds are shit, really, they are.

    creative EP-630 are good and in your price range, but generally anything made by an actual hi-fi company will be light years ahead of those silly white noisemakers.

    Personally, I have the Ink'd earphones from Skullcandy. They're a bit on the expensive side, $20-25 at Best Buy, but they're some of the best I've purchased in a long time. They use the little rubber attachments(I've never had a problem with them), so they cancel noise, stay in your ear, and deliver some killer sound quality. They're definitely worth the purchase.

    For reference, here's a link to the Best Buy page for the ones I have. If you buy them at the store, you even get a one-year warranty on them for like $5-10.

    Dr.Killa I don't recognise the brand, so they are probably crappy generics, I recommend you look around http://www.avforums.com though as I am far from an expert on this subject.

    skullcandy are great, if all you want to hear is bass and don't want to hear any depth in the music what so ever.... just like Bose you are paying for a poser brand rather than audio quality.
