I have a pair of MX581 and they work great for me. I like the sound and more importantly they are a good fit in my ears (small). I have tried many other earbuds they become uncomfortable (too big) for me after just a few minutes of listening. Even the apple headphones that came with my 4th gen ipod touch feel a tad big. Now I need another pair and dont want to spend more than $30 - even less if I could. And IEMs are not for me, dont like putting things that far in my ears So what is out there right now that I can conisder ? Please advise. Thanks!
