    What is the best earphones to use on Storm?

    After reading the thread about the best case for the Storm (and ordering an Innocase II), I decided to move to the next accessory I need to upgrade for my Storm, namely headphones.

    I don't use a bluetooth device because I want to be able to carry one accessory w. me that will work on both my Storm and my iPod, so I'm left w. the headphone option. I've been using the stock headphones that come w. the Storm but was looking for a pair that provide the same functionality but have noise cancellation and fit better/audio quality.

    Does anyone have any experience w. alternate headphones that they'd be willing to share?

    Thanks!

    Smile Bose in ear headphones

    I bought a pair of Bose? in-ear headphones and was blown away at the sound quality. Let me warn you that these things arn't cheap!
    They don't bother you like the the stock set they give you, but the thing that sold me was the sound quality.
    i bought them at BestBuy and if you're not happy with them they'll refund ur money. I know this cause I tried 3 different brands b4 I got the Bose.

    Once you try these puppies on you won't give em back!!!

    if you have an ipod, i would just use the earbuds that came with it. there good enough for headphones. your not going to get a 5.1 surround sound out of any headphones.lol so to me all headphones sound the same, some do have a fuzzy or cracky sound but i would stay with the headphones you use with your iPod and save some money

    They look great...do you by chance know if they have noise cancellation built in? Also, how would you use them w. the Storm...did you have to buy an adapter w. microphone to use them with the phone? I guess that's the big challenge...I'm looking for headphones that'll work w. the phone that I can also use on my iPod.

    Thanks again.

    As per the previous post...Dude you'll be amazed how these things sound...Probably better then 5.1 Dolby..

    I haven't used them for the phone so I wouldn't know.
    Ur on your own for that one. As for the Ipod, yeah not a problem there....work fine.

    P.S. you remember that Maxell commercial with the guy in the chair being blown away by the sound....well buckle yourself in !!!

    Blindman4556,
    I hear you bud...I was just like you till I busted the stock ear phones. Won't even get into that one!
    I was looking for a replacement but everthing I tried sounded like crap. I figured for 20-50 bucks I'll get something good....Well try again..half the stuff out there is totally crap....sounds really tinny....
    Got fed up and said let me try the Bose and I never looked back.

    I use my iPod in the car as well. What I'm trying to do is rather than carry a bluetooth for the Storm and headphones for the iPod, just use a pair of headphones (like the ones that come w. the Storm), but w. better noise cancellation (and preferably better acoustics).

    I'm w. you on the sound quality though...for me, the most important thing is noise cancellation, since ultimately I'll be wearing them inside a motorcycle helmet.
