    I recently bought a 8GB 1st gen ipod touch from a friend, he gave me the apple ear buds with it. They sound like I'm listening to my music through a tin can.. so I'm looking for something with a better frequency range that isn't like 100$+. I listen to mainly metal/rock/alternative stuff so treble clarity is more important than bass.

    I have sorta big ears and the Apple ear buds fall right out of my ears, so I go some of these. They are made by Philips and only cost something like $20. The sound is far beyond any other ear bud I've ever used and they come with the soft, removable over-the-ear part as well. They are a couple of years old, but Philips still likely makes a good ear piece.

    Honestly, with an Ipod touch you really don't need headphones that cost more than $50. With the limited soundquality that the ipod outputs combined with typical mp3 quality an expensive set of headphones won't really be all that much better. For the money I'd recommend going with the cheapest set of Senniheusers with the foam fitting earbuds if you need comfort, or the 2nd tier Skull Candy's if your ok with rubber tips.
    See ya in another life, brother.

    It's a shame Apple didn't put a custom equalizer feature on these things. The EQ presets suck, and their ear buds suck. How are skull Candy's? and which model would you recommend?
