...or are there any alternative decent earbuds other than MX500's available in the UK? I'm not yet convinced that canal-phones are practical for street-use, I don't want clip-over phones (I fear they'd look a tad silly in public on a middle-aged man) but I want something better than the MX300's that came with my Karma.
What I'm looking for is something with decent sound that are easy to take off and on, discrete and don't fall out like the MX300's. I'm using them with the "slic" inserts which keep them in place but I'm convinced they attenuate higher frequencies (or maybe that's my age again?).
