    ok. Yesterday I got an ipod touch. I LOVE it. well, I was listening to music last night and all of the sudden I felt 3 or 4 quick shocks(and heard them) in my left ear from the earbud. Being the freak out I am I threw the headphones and jumped a little

    I wouldn't say it hurt that bad though. Ive felt worse static shocks. I think it was a static shock, I just want to make sure. I mean, it makes sence, Ive been getting shocked A LOT today and yesterday by almost everything, but I thought there would be something on earbuds to stop discharge from happening?

    I just want to know if its normal, and if I should keep using these headphones.

    Ear buds with rubber buds would probably have helped.

    1st thing i did was ditch the supplied headfones....

    Bought the sony mdr90's which after burning them in are awesome.

    The market is flooded with sets you can choose and users will make their recommendations, but in the end its what you find comfortable to wear.

    I guess it's because of the fact that most people have just get rid of the stock buds and bought some proper headphones

    That happened to me when I removed some clothes from a laundry bag while listening to music and some static formed. It was pretty weird but it is the second time it happened

    lol i got some $10 headphones. i dotn know what they are called but they are pretty good for 10$

    I wouldnt worry about it, its winter and static electricity builds up easily. but if you live in florida idk what to tell u lolz i would just go buy a different set.

    Interesting...I've been using the original ones for now 9 months, and not once has this ever happened.
