As a keen owner of the lovley Ipod nano

I decided to try find a pair of nice headphones which over-ride the tinny, poor sound quality and cheap deisgn of the default set i recived with my Ipod nano.

After a few moment browsing the Ipod-Store i find some very special heaphones which i am very intrested in ''Research ER-6i Earphones'' allthough they are 100.
After purchasing these and expecting mind blowing technology, and fantastic sound quality. I come to find an awrkward lump which must she literally drilled down your ear-hole and leaks small squeaks of sound. Just incase any other of you guys are thinking about buying some of these DO NOT. Stick with the average 10 set from your local store which do what they say. And do not promise the world.

I enjoy dissin' apple :D :D :D

I NEVER buy accesories that usually are ment for the MP3 player in question.

Mix and Match, that's what I say :D LOL! If you got an Ipod, get your earphones from Koss ;) LOL!

I wouldn't buy an iPod in the first place because:
- EVERYBODY owns one
- there are qualitatively better mp3 players around
- it's far too expensive
- it's white :D

Bah, these are Etymotic (SP?) earphones, not that of Apple- totally different companies! They produce the best sounding earphones in the industry. You must be inserting them in incorrectly. :D I remember reading how there's a special way of inserting the Etymotics, but I don't remember the context... http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/privateeye.gif

Some cheap $10 Sony earbuds suited me fine, more so than those horrible Apple earbuds. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/redface.gif Mixing and matching is more fashionable because those white earbuds are out of style. The more you try to conceal the fact that you have an iPod (with various skins, body stickers, etc.), the cooler you'll be. :cool: :D

Maybe taking your time to study on the manual (http://www.etymotic.com/ephp/er6i-ifu.aspx) would help, Sam-1990 ?
