Earphone Recommendations

Q: I received a new iPod for Christmas, but the included white Apple earbuds aren’t very good. Can you recommend a better pair for the iPod?

A: While the right set of earbuds can be a very subjective decision, our five-part series, The Complete Guide to Earphones is intended to cover most of the observations and experiences that we have from years of reviewing a wide variety of different styles and specific models of earphones.

If you’re looking for more specific information on a given pair of earphones, be sure to check out our Headphones and Earphones Reviews. Our very top picks are found in our 2008 Buyers’ Guide.
