Good earbuds?

Anything less than $100, and sounds pretty good on a Zune. I bought some crap ones from Amazon last week after mine got stolen, and they're already broken. So... need another pair x.x Looks are sorta important, but I'd rather have high quality sound than something that looks cool.

    I've had good luck with these bass freq color earphones. You can get them for less than $10 off ebay or something. I've had a few pairs that have broken after 8-12 months, but I would use them for at least a couple hours everyday, so it's understandable. And they come in a lot of different colors. They cancel outside noise pretty well.

    I got some skullcandy buds and they sound really good to me, I'm also stupidly abusive with headphones and I use a zune. They only cost about $10 at some tech store I was in.

    I love skullcandy earbuds, even though they broke when I dropped my zune and they got caught on something. My ears are too small for the typical iPod earbuds so the skullcandy ones are small enough not to hurt my ears.

    The bass freq buds look nice, and the cable's pretty good length for me. Might go with those.

    Any specific type of skullcandy? I've looked at Ink'd before, how are they?

    Lots of under ten dollars ones. Anything that goes over fifty dollars, you'd be better off buying snake oil to rub on your ears for magically improved hearing.

    Find me a pair of under-$10 earbuds that have good bass *and* treble, and won't break in a month... then you're my new favorite person :P

    I've also used the Skullcandy ink'd earbuds, but they're definitely not as good as vmoda, imo. Plus, vmoda comes with three different sizes of silicone fittings, so they'd be more likely to fit in your ears.

    There's some earbuds called Monkey-something-or-other. Or are made by a company called Monkey-something-or-other (Search on Amazon. I can't imagine there are too many earbuds with the name Monkey in it. It should pop up.)
    they're amazing! The sound is ridiculously clear and crisp.

    I used to use SkullCandy but I can't get myself to go back to them after using the Monkey brand.

    I dunno how much you're willing to spend, but these are phenomenal (Amazon.com: Woodees IESW101B Inner-ear Stereo Earphone:…).

    Made out wood = awesome resonance and what not.

    Those are pretty cheap, but I prefer canal earbuds. And 1m total for the cable seems a bit short. I can't do short cables, too tall xD


    Edit: I was actually looking at Skullcandy Holuas, which re made out of wood too. They looked really nice, but were about double the price of those others :P

    Skullcandy sounded good, but mine broke really quickly.

    I currently have JVC marshmallows and they sound really good. They've lasted for 4 months so far. The foam earbuds that come with it are kind of annoying, so I just used my leftover skullcandy earbuds.
