    I've been wondering this for a while. I don't mean it as a "diss" or anything, I'm just wondering why people switch to different buds. The only reasons I can think of are theft (they know you got an iPod by the buds) and sound quality, but to be fair, I think Apple's buds sound alright

    Pssh.
    They just didn't feel comfortable for me, and I didn't like the sound. Simple.

    I haven't really noticed any flaws other than the way they get dirty so easily and how the rubber peels off dead easy on the ear pieces... i just ordered some new ones anyway

    I never liked their sound, and I prefer in-ear earphones anyway. That said, anyone know what apple's in-ear buds are like?

    I recently bought the Apple in-ear buds, and I must say that I'm pretty happy with them.
