    Okay, I confess that I'm a fan of the Apple wired headphones. Yup, mic and all. Only problem is that they don't stay in my ears.

    Does anyone have any suggestions for something comparable to those, but in the style that goes into your ear canal? I'd like to keep it around $50 but am willing to go a little above that point.

    Thank you!

    Skull candy are a reasonably good sound for the price. Not too sure about the mic though

    Apple makes some in ear headphones just like the ones you get with your iphone just in ear. Try those out, saw them on the apple store app.

    Thanks for the tip. I read the description and ordered a set. I'll post in this thread how it went as soon as I get them and can run with them!

    Have you heard of Frogs? They work REALLY well and are reasonable and available at Target (i think)

    I ended up ordering the Apple earbuds that go in the canal. They're perfect.

    I like the Shure in ear ones. I have had great luck with them and they sound amazing. Little on pricy side but you get what you pay for.

    How much higher are you willing to go? I used some Bose earbuds and I can't tell you how good the sound my music and movies sound. I paid $125 and they are worth every penny. Check them out at your local Bestbuy or Verizon store.

    Sound is a very individual thing. In all my years around studios and people obsessed with it, I've rarely found people who agree on what sounds best. My father owned a record store when I was a kid, then was involved in a studio, and I worked in quality control in a record pressing plant when vinyl was still king. This was in the middle 1970s.
    What one person hears as thin will be fine to someone else, too much bass will be to little for the next guy. My point is don't spend very much on earbuds or anything else without trying it yourself. There is no one size fits all when it comes to sound and how we hear it.

    I have the kinds q the plastic or whatever material that gies OVER the headphone buds that fit in the ear. Being hard of hearing I have to remove my hearing aid which is no biggie I still hear and use the set I have.
    I have many, BB , Samsung those cheap JOOP ones or whateve they are called from walmart lol even Sony head set (no need to remove hearing aid) but I prefer them off.
    I am willing to get a new I fritz case n ear set I don't care for the mic thing in the middle that apple has no biggie.
