    I use Skull Candy platenum ear buds. They sound great and were only $40. Good for the gym and other activities as they stay in your ear much better than the apple ones.

    I use Shure earbuds (about $125 several years ago) and Bose over-the-ear headphones (about $150) with a sort of air pocket for your ears, because my ears are small and earbuds hurt after a while. But most often, I use my Jambox Bluetooth speakers ($140-$200, depending on where you buy and on sales prices now and then). I have two Jamboxes that I use interchangeably, so that I always have one charged. Love those speakers -- lightweight, compact, good sound and battery life, nice design, good interface.

    I used my Dr. Dre. Beats Studio Pro, the outcome of the music is very nice even if it is too loud you will not feel any ache from your ear. Though it is expensive, but I can say that it is really worth the price.

    How's the battery life of the Jambox? I played around with it at Best Buy and was pretty impressed with the sound that came out of such a little speaker box.

    As for headphones, I use Klipsch S4 in ears that I've owned for a couple of years, and just last week bought a pair of Sol Republic Tracks HD to go with my new iPad 3. I have to say, hands down the Tracks HD is the best set of cans I've ever owned in terms of sound quality and comfort. I also own a pair of Beats Studio that I got for my birthday last year. While it sounds decent, I can't wear it for more than an hour without discomfort. Out of the box, the Tracks HD sounds much better than the Beats: Deep bass while providing impressive clarity in the mids and highs. Vocals, especially females come through vividly. They sound even better after burning em in. I listen to a wide range of music and find that the Tracks are best suited for Pop, Hip Hop, Rap, Rock, and Heavy Metal. They're decent for Jazz (although saxophones sound AMAZING on this), ballads and acoustic jams, but just ok for A Cappella.

    Ahhhh now this is what I've just recently gone through again buying a new set of headphones to replace my old ones that have been through WWI and back.

    I use www.iheadphones.com

    My last set cost me £35 just over a year ago with a 3.5mm jack and full surround sound. They're audio technica's DJ style headset in white. Bargain price for the superb sound quality that they output even on max volume. No distortion or anything.

    Friday I visited again to replace this headset and I got a wireless headset with a five star rating on everything like build quality and sound quality. And they are on par with dr dre beats studios for less than half the price at £50!

    SkullCandy Titanium in-ear buds. They're only $40, but the sound quality is like a $100 pair IMO. :)
