^ My friend has those, and he sticks them in his earlobes. I've tried them and they're quite painful But maybe the brand he uses is not very good.

I don't like headphones, they're not really practical if someone's talking to you and you have to take them off right away.. it only takes a shoulder rub against the ear with regular earphones.
I honestly can't remember how many pairs of earphones I've tried in the last year or even brands, I've even had to bought three pairs in less than a week.. I break them, lose them or they're just bad quality... I love hook earphones, they're definitely 'safer' than the others.. the downside is that if you do tend to take them on and off, it gets to a point where the cable twists or something and the quality of the sound doesn't decrease, it just vanishes completely . and I'm not big on repairing earphones and I doubt someone else is. :p

of all the earphones I've used.. JVC ones are my favorites, in terms of durability and quality.
ignoring quality and focusing entirely on durability, no brand has lasted me more than Apple...they're very resisting, and hard to crash .. I'd probably go back to them if I could find a non-white pair.. I hate white earplugs with a passion..

^I have a thing for a sort of off-white earplugs

Another thing about the ear hook phones I'm using now...
the outside noise does drown out the music
It's only when I'm someplace quiet that I can have the volume at a moderate level and still be able to hear music

Otherwise I have to crank it up

^here here. yeah, you really need to push them deep into the ear to block all the noise.. and then you do that, and your ear hurts afterwards. I bought a black pair of god knows what brand last year.. I was so happy about their tiny size until my ear started to release some strange liquid I'm too scared to find out what it was. thank god it stopped. but it did worry me for a while. which doesn't mean I stopped using them of course.
my mom would be horrified to read this.

Earphones since headphones look kind of ridiculous in public, at least on me. I use the normal iPod ones - they've quite improved them since 2004 when I got my first iPod (mind you, those still work!).

I never listen to music in public, only when I'm at home when I know no one is near, so the "Which one is more aesthetically appealing?" debate doesn't apply to me. I just use earphones, though I've misplaced the particular brand.

Headphones seem inconvenient to me, however, as do those clip-on earphones. My newspaper editor always has the latter in her ears, and it seems like such a pain to get them out. Perhaps that's why she never does.

I finally invested in Bose earbuds for my iPod and I have to say the sound quality is unmatched. Totally worth the money if you listen to you iPod often.

They're gorgeous and I WANT them but they're soo expensive
I'll wait till I get a job first
owned two of them. they are decent, you can get better sound quality and better built earphones for less or a similar price.

I am a earphone and headphone type of person. Depends on the situation I am in.

Got the B&O A8, they're wonderful.

These blue and green headphones looks pretty cool, btw.

I have the Jays q-jays on order, but have not received them. I've heard great things about them and am curious to own a top notch pair of earphones.
