Over the years I have had a hard time finding ear buds that both were comfortable, functional, and had great sound quality. The ear buds that came with my iPod three years ago were hard and would hurt my ears with extended use. I bought Griffin snap on bud helpers to add comfort and bass, it added too much bass even I selected the "bass reducer" under the EQ option. I then bought some Phillips that gave you a "360" sound, they sounded good but I did not like that the left side cord is approx. 4 times shorter than the right side counterpart which is by design. This is supposed to make wearing it behind the head easier but I found it to be an annoyance. I found a great pair under $30.00 in these Altec Lansing natural wood ear buds. Great fit, great sound 9mm speakers.

I have just been looking for In Ear Monitors this past week also. Admittedly, I'm looking for some to fit the needs of an live audio engineer. I was looking for IEMs that reproduce the program material correctly, and are comfortable. I would like to get a pair of Ultimate Ears 11s. http://www.ultimateears.com/_ultimateears/store/custom/ue11pro.php These probably are the best the market has to offer. There are 4 drivers in each side, 2 bass, 1 mid, 1 treble. They also are custom fitted to your ears, so you go to your local audiologist and get a mold of your ears and send it to Ultimate Ears in California. I don't know if I can justify these right now, but it's always fun to look around.

I'm thinking I might end up with the Sennheiser ie7 or Shure SE530 series for the time being. Has anyone had any luck with either of these?
Say Hey Clark, this looks like it may be a good resource for high end professional IEM's they have both one's needing a audiologist and not needing one. Good selection to choose from ... http://www.earphonesolutions.com/
i have a pair of ultimate ears from when i used to tour. they're amazing! and their customer service is beyond fantastic. definitely a good find.
I really like the wood finish and the price of the Altec Lansing earphones. They are even on sale at Amazon.com for 55% off!

I have a pair of SHURE SE310 earphones that sound amazing. At 1/10 the price, I am curious to see how the Altec Lansing earphones sound.
I'd say give'em a spin Adam, great sound for the price and I like the fact when I use them at work they kind of drowned the printers noise out with the volume not being to loud. Now granted they are not noise canceling, and they are on sale to boot ... win, win :)

"Valid point. And I suppose it's still "extramarital" even if he's not married? Or perhaps it would be "amarital"... Anyway, the statistic does seem off, but I wouldn't know."
