argh! these headphones are no good, either! i mean, they're better than the last ones, but they have different annoyances that you don't know about till you open them up (& can't return them).

in this case, the cord is asymmetrical and requires you to loop it behind your neck, and i so hate that because it's just another thing to get tangled. and because it's asymmetrical, it has a tendency to fall to the left side, tugging the right earbud. also, the cord is too short to reach your pocket, so they thoughtfully provide an extension that allows it to hang to the floor, which is both way too long and adds even more weight to the left side with an awkward lump in the middle.

the good news is they fit in my ears well and are lots easier to get them in & out easily. but man, the next rung up is the $100 range, and i don't know if i can do that.

(and boy do i wish i would have bought them from amazon instead of the apple store, which would have saved me about $20.)

Comments:
Yes, those are the same ones that I have. They are my Most Hated Possession(TM) due to their propensity for tangling. The sound quality is reasonable, and they fit my ears which is a rarity, but that freakin' CORD is the bane of my existence. I too would like to have a better set, but for the price.
 
do you use the extension cord, mr. villager? if the primary cord was a little longer, i could live w/ the asymmetricalness, but the added extension cord weight pushes it over the edge.
 
I do not use the extension cord, Ms. gl, since I plug into my iPod's wired remote. However, the extension cord MUST be used when using these headphones to jack into a laptop, since the cord won't reach your lap otherwise. Just another reason that these headphones are a headACHE, but then, they're not $100. Plus, I've experienced pops and dropouts with this extension cord (and with most others, I might add)
 
try going to macforce. they have a number of headphones you can try out.
 
not the in-ear ones, though, right?
 
i think they have some in ear ones
 
i mean, they don't let you try on the in-ear ones, i think. ew.
 
your ick factor is another matter.
 
*shrugs* the mac store at llyod center doesn't let you try them on and they specifically say you can't return them because of the ick factor. the ones i had weren't specifically in-ear (just sorta near-ear) and i couldn't return them, either. :P
