You know I just got a pair of these with my new ISkin case for 5G. Gotta say, the sound is very impressive. I've always had trouble keeping the Apple supplied buds in my ears. The Griffin earjams help somewhat but blocks too much of the highend. The Sony's are far too shrill for me. Judging by the iSkin website, the either must be very popular or they decided to discontinue since there are none available in any color.

I hope i'm not looking stupid but I think the made the right side longer for a reason. Before I had an Ipod Nano my old MP3 player had an headphones with the right side longer. What your suppose to do is put the left one in your ear and wrap the right one behind your neck.

I recently got a pair of these (in oh-so-garish green) when I bought an iSkin Shuffle duo. I use them with both my 3G iPod and my Shuffle and I am actually impressed.

My "regular" headphones are Grado SR60s at home and Bose QC2s for travel. I have rarely found earbuds to be anything but flat and dull, with a drawer full of Apples, Sonys (the worst!) and Sennheisers I just can't use. Imagine my surprise when the little green Cerulean XLRs knocked them all out of the park!

No, not as good as the Grados or Bose. But I finally have something I can slip in my pocket and use at the gym without grimacing. The sound is what Apple's should have been - much more bass extension, much greater detail in the treble. And, they stay in my ears.

For $15 with an iSkin, these are a terrific deal.

i bought these a couple of days ago along with the limited edition evo3 skin for my ipod video

i say the volume is great and i love the idea of one side being longer than the other it prevents the wires from tangling in each other

Apple's earphones (the old kind, I bought my 2G black nano last August) always fall out of my ears when running. Does anyone find that these stay in your ears better? Are they more comfortable than apple's headphones?
I plan on getting the iSkin Duo, and am not sure whether or not to waste my money on the headphones or not. It seems like the sound quality is much better, though the fit is what I'm concerned about. smile

Any replies would be fantastic! :D
