    Since I don't have an iPhone .... yet (5 weeks left of Sprint contract), to hear sound I need some sort of headphones. I've been buying iPods since the first one came out and probably 8 different kinds of sources for getting the sounds into my head but I have yet to find something that sounds good, doesn't have annoying tangled wires, and looks cool. So .... I play most of the games on my iPod Touch without sound. For listening to music in bed I use the Bose soft small over-ear headphones. Earbuds hurt my ears and the one's that don't hurt fall out. I'm tired of wasting between $50 and $100 on earbuds touted to fit perfect but I'm open for suggestions.

    Anyone else playing their games without sound because of the headphone hassle?

    I use headsets that came with free earbuds and were a total or 12.99$ I'm happy with my purchase and the sound is pretty good, I don't have a sensitive ear so that might be why I don't notice those things you mention.

    BTW who's gonna be first and say this needs to go to the Lounge?...Really? nobody?

    -Radioshack! has them, but they upped the price to 19.99$.

    -You get +1 point for saying the lounge thing :p

    -For my shuffle I use JVC earbuds which I do not recommend at all. had them for a week and they started making weird crakling noises and the plastic started falling off. I still use them but....ZAAAAAAAP!!!!! electric shockO!!!!:eek:

    I'm a headphone snob, and I use many different pairs (depending on task/environment/etc.), but for an all-around not expensive but great sounding pair, this is the best deal I've seen yet: Sennheiser CX400

    This is, of course, if you actually care about good quality sound - not everyone does.

    Earbuds suck and make you look like 2003. I wouldnt use them just on principle.

    I've been using the Phillips ear buds and sound great, only $15 at Walmart and even have a little speaker in the middle (reversed).
    Now to my point: I hate them. They are great in every aspect but guess I have sensitive ears and its real bothersome. So when I get some extra cash going for the over the ear kind.
