Even though wicked sounding headphones are available, ear buds are the easier and more portable solution. No one wants to lug around a big ol' pair of Sennheiser or Sony DJ headphones to listen to your iPod on the treadmill. Most of the time, iPods rarely crank out enough juice to power them up anyway.
If the top of the line sound canceling Shure SE530 earphones are just too expensive for you (hello, 500 bucks!), you can try JVC's new earphones, which at $15 cost a fraction of Shure's...
The strangely misspelled Gumy Air earphones bring the comfort of a custom fit at an affordable price thanks to the use of a soft silicon air cushion, which changes shape to conform to the different sizes of the ears (do your ears hang low? Do they wobble to and fro?).
The Gumy Air is available in a range of colors to match iPods, iPhones, or any other (gasp!) digital media player you may be plugged into. via FarEastGizmos
