    Looking to purchase some new earbuds tomorrow. Really don't like the ones that came with the phone. They always fall out. So I would like to know what everyone is using and ur opinion on which ones u think r the best. I've got some skull candy 50/50 which I really love but I was looking to get some back ups.

    My favorites are the Etymotic hf3 earbuds... they set me back about $160 over 18 months ago... love them - great sound ... but they’re pricey...

    I prefer in-ear headphones with good resonance. I prefer V-Moda re-mix in-ear: http://v-moda.com/remix-audio/

    Also might want to check The Wirecutter:

    I use LG Tone + Bluetooth headphones. They are in-ear headphones, sound quality is great, battery life is great, and they are very comfortable to wear. I like them a lot, & definitely recommend them.

    I got a pair of Klipsch S4i earbuds last year. They fit my ears very well (probably the most comfortable earbuds I've owned), and the overall sound is pretty balanced, not nearly as bass heavy as the "Beats" series. My wife swears by her Bose (IE2), but they don't fit my ears as well.

    Guess I am easy to please, the factory ear buds have worked perfect for me.
    I did purchase a pair of Beast Solo HD's, after trying my daughters a few times.
    I have really enjoyed them, when I want to sit back & listen to my playlist.

    I actually enjoy the sound from the Apple Earpods, but they don't fit well in my ear. I could never use it while exercising because they'd fall out quite easily. My daughter uses them with her 4S while I use my Bose IE2 headphones.

    I hear you. The IE2's are a joy to wear and the sound, at least in my opinion, is clear and well-balanced. I'm content with them being my primary in-ear accessories.

    I also have these and love them. I also like my Bose over the ear for when you just need some piece and quiet.

    Bose IE2's are the way to go. Best fit and sound for any workout. I also use some Bose over-the-ears when at work for peace and quiet. The IE2's have never fallen out and always produce amazing sound.

    I'll have to check these Bose out. Right now I got the ones that came with the phone and some skull candy 50/50. I'll probably stick with these til one of them go out or I may just get the Bose.

    Right now, the IE2's are $99 almost everywhere and the MIE2's (the ones with the microphone) are around $120.

    No, but they're not designed to be. Still, you have three different inner ear thingies to give you a more snug fit and help reduce outside noise. However, in my opinion, outside noise is barely noticeable, especially at certain volume levels, and because the sound is so darn great...

    I'll have to pass on them. I work in a very loud environment so I'll have to find something else

    I'm good with the supplied ear buds. When I am in a noisy environment, I simply turn the volume up just enough to block it out but still enjoy my music.
