I'm really liking my 8gb ipod touch (though now I wish I had purchased the 16gb considering Apple just released a 32gb version). Who knows, I can always sell mine later and upgrade. In the meantime, I'm thinking of upgrading my headphones. The two brands I have in mind are Shure (a poster on this forum recommended it to me) and Bose. I was able to test the Bose at Apple store (Bose On Ear headphones) and to me it sounds really nice. The biggest drawback is the steep $179.95 price. As far as Shure goes, I hear Shure is a highly respected name in the business. (their cheapest model is priced at $99, most expensive selling for $399). Any advice? Thanks.
