Can anyone recommend a good set of earbuds?

Well fitting (multiple sized heads)
Ear loop (not necessary but nice)
Inline controls (not necessary but nice)
Noise cancelling
High quality sound, especially bass (no tinnies)
Nothing over $100

Can't remember the exact model, but they are designed for the iPhone (and have a lifetime warranty - I'm already on my second replacement after nearly two years). From memory, about $140... Only downside is no inline volume control, but there is a microphone and an on/off button....

Edit: JB HiFi

Not headphones? Makes for a much nicer listening experience I say, and the over ear styles are great for blocking out the world.

Most headphones are much cheaper if you import them. But just be careful there are a lot of fakes out there so make sure you do your reading first.

Pine, I don't like headphones, especially while walking and that is the predominant use for these.
Found a nice pair I liked at Computer Lounge.

Will post model and a review of sound etc when I get them.

I have cheap white TDK ones from the Craphouse. They were $20. They are ok, they were just to replace my previous ones that died. I've had to cellotape a few bits to cover bare wire, which means the covering is cheap. They sound ok, Not tinny, but not as good as my No-name ones that came with my mp4 player.

I am the opposite. Can't stand earbuds, horrible things.

The old ones sucked I must admit but the new ones with the shaped buds etc fit really well and the sound is very good.
(If you get the right pair)

My ones have round things, that fit properly in the ear hole. I hate the old style ones that just sit on your ear.
