    So my headphones are starting to fall apart and I'll need new ones soon. Anyone have any recommendations? I'm looking for ones with good bass response.
    btw if anyone has Apple's in-ear headpones...how good are they?

    I have ones made by 2XL or something like that. They were like $20 or something. REALLY comfortable in my ears and I was surprised on the amount of bass they produced

    I tried the Dr. Dre headphones from the online apple store... they are very (VERY) expensive for in ear headphones, but the bass is absolutely spectacular. :eek::D Sound is amazing!

    I got the Apple in ear headphones for use with the RjDj app, while the sound functionality isn't the best, I love listening to my music and then getting a phone call and able to click into and out of said phone call... Not sure if any 3rd parties have the built in mic support... But the price is quite high for them @ the Apple store, like everything else in there, I would try ebay first...

    well lets just say there is enough bass for my preferences but i also dont know how much bass can be pumped into little earbuds. ill admit i didnt buy them for bass capabilities i thought they looked comfortable and thats why i bought them. and they are seriously the most comfortable ive ever bought.

    Senheissers are amazing. I got one of the portable folding pairs a while back, but after my iPod got stolen, I stuck with the Apple buds. I probably won't go back to headphones and stick with earbuds, but if you're an audiophile, heck, someone that's like awesome sound and deep bass, get one of these babies.

    Bose in ear headphones. They'll set you back a benjamin but it's worth it. The bass line is so clear.

    Yes I should also add I don't use my iPod for music listening purposes. I use it for Internet, apps, and entertainment so maybe I'm not the right guy to suggest any earbuds

    I'd expect apple to announce a nice pair of Bluetooth headphones, hopefully at WWDC, maybe not until the iPod event though.

    Ive heard bad things about those, first of which is the bass, which is too strong (it might be your thing though, i just prefer to hear more detail in the midrange and highs) Second, they let alot of outside noise in.

    I stand by my first suggestion!

    Those complains was cause due to some fake ones that has horrible sound quality and Bose changed it to the newer version so most of it is caused due to fake ones and the old ones.

    For the record, i was talking about the newer ones. My friend and girlfriend's dad both have them. I know it wasnt directed towards me, but just saying that my points are still valid.

    Holy crap, check these out! Beautiful:
