One downside to the expensive ones is that you can't hear people talking to you when you stop. You've got to put your ipod on pause or whatever - which is a pain with the ipod touch. Strangely, you can still hear cars and road noise, horns and all that.

Go to earphone solutions.com and pick up a volume controll, I think they call it a volume attenuator. It plugs into earphone and you leave it outside jacket so you can controll volume while riding. Only bout $15.00

I think this is the ones I used to run. I am picky as about my headphones, especially when riding. I found mine at walmart and loved the out of them. Never had a problem at all.
These might not be them. Noah stole mine, I will ask him tomorrow if he still has them so I can make sure they are the ones.

After buying a pair of Shure 6 years ago, I cannot go back to buds like the Skull Candy ones, I tried for a day and gave them away. They are ok for what they cost but they dont hold a candle to good ear plugs. Since then I have had the Etymotic and Shure, liking the Shure better.

The Etymotic and Shure both double as ear plugs. Thats what makes them so cool, you can be on your bike and you only have to barely turn your ipod up because they block most of the ambient noise. It saves your ears and it also extends battery life especially with the Nanos because you only use very little power to push them. You can also use them with no music at all.

I used to fly 4 times a month for work for like 5 years and I would put them on half of the time with no music.

No prob. The ONLY major complaint about buying high end ear buds is that once you have heard music you have listened to a thousand times and you hear all kinds of things you never noticed before, you really cannot go back to regular ones. You pretty much are doomed to dish out the cash for nice ones again if you lose, destroy or get them stolen.

Sound Solution...

Walmart has a $20.00 pair that you compress as you would ear plugs before insertion. When they expand to their normal size they shut out ambient noise (as a plug would), allowing for more of the music (only) to get through.

I believe that they're Sony. I do know that they're $20.00.

And so worth it entirely.
