    And it could always be the cord attached to the EarPods that unstable them. I would love to try them, but all Apple Stores are out of stock. I wish they'd make a Jet Black pair to match my iPhone.
    I agree black would be nice. I am considering a pair but I will need to wait as Christmas has taken all of my spare $$. Also current lack of availability makes it easier to wait.

    I use the EarPods that came with my phone. They're actually the only earbuds that fit comfortably in my ears. All others fall out or make my ears hurt after so long. I'm not too fond of the stem on the AirPods or I would grab some of those. I just ordered a pair of Solo3s so I'll be good with those and the EarPods.

    I have PowerBeats 2 that are comfy and sound good, but I grew up running track and wrestling. I never trained with music so as an adult when I run, I don't use any EarPods and when I kickbox and grapple there is music in the background. But again the PowerBeats sound solid and fit well.

    I'm using the HTC Hi Res right now. I've bought more expensive buds, but I always seem to break them. I've grounded myself from spending more than $40 on headphones. They sound better than anything else I've tried at their price point. (Especially considering I only spent $18 on them when HTC was having a %40 sale). I may try the AirPods down the road after I can try them on. The wires are what I always break so I wouldn't worry much about breaking them.

    I use power beats 2 and like them, they stay on well when I bike or run, and sound good.

    Anyone use the Bose qc30 headset? Wanted something for plane that had noise cancelling properties but would stay in sync with video. Curious how 'off' they are, my power beats have an annoying lag between video and audio.

    I have seen mixed reviews on the jaybirds x3, best buy reviewers had favorable comments but on amazon it only got 3 stars. Can anyone here share their experience?

    I tried the AirPods and they fit in my ear when I'm not doing much. But when I start to run, they start to get loose and start to fall out.

    But for my brother(AirPods belong to him) it fits fine even when running.

    Earbuds? Well, I primarily use two sets - The Bose IE2 and the Apple earbuds.

    I use the new Jaybird Freedom. They sound great especially when you change out the silicone ear buds for the Comply T500 memory foam ear buds. It makes them sound much better, and they stay in the ear a little better as well. Also, Jaybird guarantees all of their devices against damage from sweat.
    The only down side is the battery life is only 4 hours, but my workouts generally don't last more than 2-3 hours.

    I use Jabra Sport for walking my dogs, they have FM radio so suits me as i don't carry my iPhone, for the price they do the job. At home its Bose QC35. Would like a Apple watch but probably over kill for my uses, music and tracking which i have a fitbit flex 2.

    I use Beats UR earbuds. They sound decent--much better than the Apple Earbuds, but the main reason is because they fit the best in my ears. I use them while doing yard work, working out, etc and they never come loose or feel like they're going to fall out.

    But it seems that there a limitation to Bluetooth/wireless earphones/headphones/earbuds. The sounds just doesn't seem to match my customs.

    I use to think this myth was true as well. Maybe before, but now with the improvements of Bluetooth technology the difference is minimal if any depending on the quality of the Bluetooth device.

    I'm sure you will find plenty of people that disagree, but I feel the same way. I don't have super high end regular or Bluetooth headphones, but I don't notice a difference either in the ones that I have.

    My Earins definitely loses out to my custom IEM in terms of sound quality but in the future I really hope that custom IEMs will be Bluetooth too!

    I agree. I've used cheap Motorola Bluetooth headphones, 5 dollar ones and was gifted wireless beats. The $5 ones sounded like $5 wired (horrible) but the other 2 are equivalent (Motorola) or exponentially better (beats) than my wired EarPods, skull candy etc

    I use the apple earbuds. I'm also going to buy some Archeer wireless headphones from my son. He got them for Christmas but he doesn't like the sound.

    I just recently started using the included Lightning EarPods and I was surprised at how decent they sound. Whenever I get a new iPhone, I usually don't even bother to remove them from the box but I decided to give them a try this time.
