I've owned about 5 pair of apple earphones and I just got a pair with the 4g ipod. apple has either done something to make them sound better or i got a fluke pair because these things sound pretty good. I think i'm goin got try that jabra idea to see if i can coax some more bass out of these things. Thanks for the idea.

The answer to comfort and sound would be an ear bud with an over the ear clip. Does it exist?

This is a bit off of the subject, but I am on a mission for some high quality, water resistant/sweat resistant headphones for working out or running. The closest thing that I have found is the Sony Sports Model, but the sound quality is nothing close to that of the Apple Ear Buds, which are completely unusable for running or use on an eliptical trainer.

I have looked high and low for a year with no success. Any suggestions?

As stated above by Plasticjesus, the white 71s are just beginning to be orderable in US; check out eBay tho--I bought white 71s six months ago directly from Hong Kong dealer and they were cheaper than Sony's planned US price.

Yes, it does. Bang & Olufsen make a sweet pair that sound amazing, and are sooo comfortable. A little pricey, I think they're worth it, I love mine.

I called Griffin Tech and politely asked if they were going to continue to shift the ship date and the guy was rude. He even said "I'll be happy to cancel your order right now if you want." So I did. I'll try the 51/71s. If I decide to try the EarJams I will buy them from someone else though. I love their products (own iMic and PowerMate), but the person I spoke with (Randal) was rude.

BE CAREFUL WITH EARJAMS!

I was trying to remove them from my earbuds last night, but in the process, they broke the stock headphones!

The EarJams attached so tightly that when I gently tried to pry them off, the earbuds (both sides) separated at the seams and disrupted the internal workings. I had to throw my stock buds away and purchase a new set.

BTW, the sound quality was rather muffled with the EarJams attached. A very bad purchase. Buyer beware.

ANOTHER UBHAPPY CUSTOMER!

I just received my Earjams yesterday, and the same exact thing happened to me. First off you need to be a safecracker to just open the package. then after attaching the jams to my buds I tried them out. the sound was horrible and very muffled. I then tried to remove them and the earbuds seperated from the Earjams! Now I have wasted earbuds! I will send these back to Griffin and expect a full refund.
Stay away from these!

CHEAP ALTERNATIVE TO EARJAMS

I bought a pair of headphones on the weekend, from a company called Maplins in the UK, which is a hight street electronics retail outlet. They are £5 or ($9.50), and have detachable in-ear rubber moulds that fit apple's buds.

I have attached a link of where you can view them. They are very easy to put on (and take off!!) and can be cut to lenght if needs be. They also significantly reduce any extrerior sound and increase the bass.

Basically it is a cheap alternative for anyone who can't wait for the Earjams (or don't want ot pay £23 for them) and they can be used on any other ear pieces. I currently use them on my Nokia phone ear pieces.

kinda disappointed.. none of the three sizes stay put in my ears. so i didn't even give them a listen. i didn't have any trouble getting them off the earbuds though.

Received mine yesterday and am listening now. I have big ears and could never get the standard Ipod phones to stay in my ears. So far I'm finding thes pretty comfortable. The extra bass doesn't bother me but would be nice if there was a way not to loose so much of high end detail.

As to the Sony EX71's I couldn't stand them. Not for the bass response but for the overly bright high-end. Even with the treble reduction EQ setting on Ipod, they were still far to bright for me.

I guess if you really, really want to preserve that iPod earbud look, and you don't mind a SIGNIFICANT reduction of high end sounds, then the Earjams are a good idea for you. I am no audiophile, but I could easily hear the reduction of high end notes. Good bass though. They also are pretty big, and look kind of goofy in your ears.

On the good side, they are quite comfortable, and block out exterior sounds extremely well. In addition, they are pretty

My advice would be to go out and spend the same amount of money ($15-25) on a pair of Sony earbuds. They may not be white, but you will get a better range, and better sound quality overall.
