    You are obviously "hear" because you have or are considering do ditch your iBuds. I just want to know why, were they as good as 1 dollar buds, did 15 dollar buds have way better SQ?

    Just post what made you change your 'phones also post the first 'phones you got and how much they cost

    I'll start:

    $2 Chinese iBud knockoffs had as good SQ as the apparently $30 iBuds
    Bundled HP buds had superior sound compared to the iBuds

    my first pair after my iBud stage were JVC Marshmallows

    Simple, because they sucked.

    The first phones I got? I don't really remember...it was such a long time ago. I was about 13 or 14....I'm 23 now BTW

    My dogs kept chewing them up somehow... I got some really nice Koss headphones that stopped working in the right ear for some reason, so I'm back to my old iBuds. I didn't realize how much they sucked until after I had those nice Koss's

    When you say iBuds do you mean the earbuds that come with the iPod? Well if you do the reason I got new earbuds was because they were uncomfortable and sucked. I can't remember the earbuds I bought in place of them, but I have skullcandies now and I love 'em

    I think they look pretty good and are comfortable enough, but the sound quality just doesn't do it for me so I picked up some other ones.

    ya i found ibuds really uncomfortable. Before I had my ipod touch 1gen, I had a sony walkman with a sony in-ear headphone (don't remember exact model) and I came to love the sound of it.

    So I invested in some quality in-ear headphones. My sister, on the other hand, is used to listening to ibuds that she can't listen to in-earphones for more than like 30 minutes or her ears will hurt she says.

    I am also looking to upgrade my shure scl3 into maybe se530 or westone 3
    But don't know if I should buy the headphone or a D&G watch lol

    Your iPod tells time. So why buy a watch?
