Default Stereo Earbuds for Storm

Please Login to Remove!

Hi guys,
I was wondering if anyone bought separate stereo earbuds w/ mic and multipurose button for your storm and which brand is good. Frankly, the headset that comes with the storm kinda stink. I'm looking for a good quality, low priced headset that I can use with the phone features that will offer loud, quality music with rich lows and crisp highs, maybe with a volume button or amplified, I don't know. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks!!!!

Yes I know the bose are the best. I wasn't looking to spend that much as I'm not going to use them all that oftyen. I have the Bose monitors which are incredible. I'm looking to spend maybe no more than about $20 - $40. I know somethings out there... just have to look for it.. I just hate having to buy multiple pairs of cheep headphones. For that I just buy the Bose once right? lol.. anyway, I appreciate all the feedback.

Comparing the stock headphones to the v-moda.. which one is louder? Which one's sound quality is better. I need a set that will be buds in my ear... I don't know, my ears are small, lol... so most headphones liekt eh ones the storm has always fall off. If I turn my head left, the right one drops off and vice versa. I need those that go IN your ear.
Thanks again.. sorry for the spam.

the sound quality of the v-moda is great, i too cant keep the stock headphones in my ear plus v-moda has swappable ear plugs s/m/L...i didn't know there was a pair of skullcandy with a mic, if there really is i would suggest those as well being that they're half the price of v-moda... if they are around 30, i use a pair for running love skullcandy headphone loud/comfortable and durable and only like 10bucks...both the skullcandy and v-moda have the same type of earbud

Most of those made for the iPhone work perfectly - I'm using the Griffin Tunebuds. Even let you start and pause music.

Default sound attenuation

If you are a music freak, then you might want to check out some sound attenuation like shure makes. I bought some that has the inline mic for $40.00 on ebay. They reduce the music during the ring and pause it when you answer the phone.

Shure - Microphones, Wireless Systems, Earphones, Professional and Personal Audio Gear

Or if you want real good sound, not a fancy name on them try:

Icemat audio - very good sound, even better tech. spec.
Panasonic (white one) - very good sound, even better tech. spec.

Please, use headset with good tech. spec. and try before buy.

I give another vote for Bose, although they are a bit expensive they are actually very affordable considering the quality that you get. There are headsets that cost much more that do not sound better.

I am using V-Moda Vibe Duo and they are awesome! They sound great and fit very nice in my ears. They are $99, but worth every penny.

Default Storm earbuds

My local AT&T store had the Shure I2c-m's made for the 1st gen iPhone marked down from $100 to $30. Good sound and microphone, for some reason they didn't put a control button on the mic. Anyway for that price I picked up a pair and the sound quality is good, and callers say the sound from my end is good as well with minimal background noise. The earphones are supposed to be the equivalent of the Shure E2c's with mic added.

I plugged my iPod phones in - pretty good sound. I also have a set of Motorola stereo Bluetooth phones, but I haven't played with them yet. (They are very comfortable, though.)
