My stock iPod Touch headphones have been getting progressively worse, so I decided it was time to get some new ones. I told my mom I needed some new headphones, she got me some cheap ones. I convinced her to take me to the store so I could get some real headphones. I ended up getting some Koss KE29Es. The first thing I noticed was this new thing called a bass guitar. Jk, but seriously, the Apple headphones have NO bass. I was highly impressed with the bass on these guys. Another thing that I love about these headphones is that they're long enough to reach my pocket. I'm 6'4" and the Apple headphones just barely reached my pocket, than if I twisted wrong, it'd pull the headphone out of my ear. They're black, which is a plus since the iPod is also black. My mom thought I was insane, and still does, after I told her I spent $30 on them. They're worth every penny though. As much as I'd like to say that they're 100% great, I do have 1 small complaint about them. That complaint is that the built in remote is way too sensitive. I wear my headphones running down my back, and about once an hour or so I'd have to reach my back and turn the volume back up. That can EASILY be solved with a bit of electrical tape though. Another problem that some people might run into is that the medium cover size sticks on the body of the headphones, making it somewhat less noise isolating. Luckily, I've got large ears, and the large size fits just fine. Bottom line, if you're looking for some new headphones and don't lave loads of money, I highly recommend these great heaphones. I'll edit my post with a full review containng pictures when I get on a computer and my camera decides to take some good pictures.
