Default New earbuds for iPhone 4?

Looking to buy some new earbuds for my iPhone 4.
After wearing them for awhile, they hurt my ears. What is everyone using?
Any brands to stay away from?

I like the Apple earbuds once I buy pads to put on them. JVC Gumy earbuds are really good in my opinion, I can wear Gumy's all day at work with no discomfort. Plus the Gumy earbuds will not fall out easily and they're $10.

The Apple earbuds are TERRIBLE.

You definitely need a better one that doesn't hurt.

For comfort level, I like Westone 3. The Ultimate Ears TripleFi 10 and SuperFi 5 Pro one tend to bulge outward. With Westone, I can laid in bed sideway with them on...but not Ultimate Ears. Westone is pretty light too.

There are many other ones out there, depending on how much you want to spend.

Since it's for your iphone, you want to make sure the plug is compatible with your iphone. My Ultimate Ears 5 did NOT fit the iphone with their original cable so I had to use an aftermarket extension. After a year, Ultimate Ears sent me a new cable that fits the iphone without the extension adapter.

Jumong, where did you pick your Westone 3's up from?
Was reading reviews on them, and they were all good. Might pick these up.
Thanks for the info

I got mine over a year ago at http://www.earphonesolutions.com/

Currently, they have a 15% on everything....free shipping and no sales tax. It's better than Amazon price They are a well known place to buy earphones.

Read the reviews on Amazon for the Westone 3.

Before I bought mine, it took me weeks and months reading up on this forum. It was between Westone 3 vs. Sennheiser IE 8. Sennheiser 8 is known to have huge bass and I don't like too much bass, so I opted for the Westone 3.

http://www.head-fi.org/forum/list/103

The earphone model and brand are dependent on what type of music you listen to. Post a recommendation thread on the head-fi forum and list your music type and price range...

I know these high end earphones are expensive. Is it worth it? I think each of us have different sensitivity in sounds so it all depends. Initially, i got the 2 drivers but I became curious about the 3 drivers. Was it worth it to upgrade from 2 drivers to 3 drivers? Personally, I would said no. If you're going to buy a new earphone, then go with the 2 drivers for less. A two drivers usually run at around $100-$200, while the 3 drivers run for $300-$500. I do plan on selling both my Ultimate Ears and keep my Westone.

Good luck.

I got a pair of Bose ie2 earbuds earlier this week for my iPhone. The sound quality is excellent, they're extremely comfortable- you can't even feel them, and they never fall out. Highly recommended.

For my 4th gen I-pod I went with the new Yamaha EPH-50 and they are good solid earphones with great bass extension and punch, very comfortable fit (can fall asleep with these in, and wake up forgetting they are in), non-fatiguing sound, and a good price range. Good mid-level audio quality in-ear phones for an I-pod/Iphone, which are mid level audio quality devices to begin with.

I got the ibeats, didnt know what I've been missing with Ipod earbuds. I owned the beats studio first and after enjoying the sound from them I bought the ibeats to use at the gym. They have the mic on the cord and all the functions to pause, skip etc that the iphone buds have.

Anybody have any suggestions for something fairly cheap, but comfortable and decent sound quality? I have a pair of Shure e2c's that sound great, but I'm looking for something to use on a more casual basis. The Shures create a perfect seal in my ears and while that's great for sound quality, a lot of times I don't want to be oblivious to the world around me. Looking to keep it in the $20-ish range.

I've got some sennheiser's I really like, but I've had them for probably 6 years and I don't think they make that model anymore

I picked up a pair of Denon AH-C260 earbuds a couple weeks ago as a lightning deal for $12.

It's the first ever pair of earbuds I can actually use without them falling out constantly. I mainly use them with 1 earbud in while at work so sound quality isn't a huge issue with me, but these sound good to my ears at least.
