I have been using the Sound-Squared Sport model earbuds for a couple of weeks with my Sansa E280 with Rockbox firmware. This is the best set of earbud-type headphones I've used for the price. There are others as good, but not at this price point.

Let me start with comfort. I have had numerous pairs of earbuds from Phillips, Sony, JVC, etc. I specifically chose the sport model from Sound Squared because reviews on other sites said they don't fall out. Since I work out alot, that was important to me. The other reviewers were right; these buds stay in place, period. The over the ear band is comfortable, enough that I can wear them for hours at a time at work. They also come with 3 different silicone bud sizes for a wide variety of ear sizes and shapes. The cord length is also nice and long, measuring 5 feet from tip to buds.

Next I'll move onto sound. When I first used the buds, there was way too much bass, even for my standards because I like plenty of bass. Then I realized that it was actually my equalizer settings, and not the buds. As I stated, I have Rockbox loaded on my Sansa, so I have access to awesome equalizer settings. What I was doing was trying to compensate for my poor previous earbuds by turning the bass way up, and when I plugged these in whoa! too much bass! I adjusted the level of the bass and wow, these buds are awesome sounding! Crisp highs, deep lows, and distortion free. These aren't rated as being noise cancelling, but the silicon tips do a great job of cancelling out ambient noise (such as my loud treadmill).

Last is value. $30.00 for this pair of earbuds is ridiculous. It wasn't a lot to drop on a pair of buds from a company I've never heard of before, so I gave them a try. I was seriously surprised at the quality for price point.

As any husband soon realizes, marriage is a relentless and patently unfair state of wifely over-expectations, so the potential for banishment to the proverbial doghouse is a constant specter of fear much like the dropping of the Big One during the Cold War. Therefore, scoring the infrequent point or two is both an occasion for a deep sigh of relief and one not to be undervalued.

Now, my wife visits the gym more often than is reasonable. While there, she revs up the elliptical machine like one whose hair is on fire and running towards the nearest water spigot. The resulting image is positively ferocious: arms and legs piston in a blur, the head is thrust forward and jerks side-to-side, the face is set in a grimace of determination last seen on an Ironman triathlete, and the audio leads to the iPod swing wildly as telephone wires in a windy maelstrom. It's positively intimidating. (My imperturbable work-out on the elliptical is regally placid by comparison; I barely break a sweat as I attend to the Home and Garden Channel on the overhead monitor.)

The point I'm trying to make here concerns the spouse's earphones rendered problematic by the strain. If using foam earbuds, they absorb perspiration that blocks sound. If made of plastic, they fall from her ears causing a break in stride as she shoves them back into place with a few choice words. Thus, when cautiously asked what she wanted for Christmas, she threw down the gauntlet: "Earphones that stay put and don't get blocked with unladylike sweat. Don't screw it up."

Doing an Amazon search, I found several alternatives, all of which had ratings spanning the stellar spectrum of 1 to 5.

This is the first review I've ever written. I felt compelled to tell others what I think about these earbuds. I have tried several different kinds in the past but have always had to go back to bulky head phones because I couldn't find any to fit my tiny ear canals. These fit perfect and stay on while exercising, gardening, sleeping, whatever. I'm sold!!!

So I have owned more pairs of earbuds that I have subsequently lost than I care to admit. But to be honest I have never been 100% happy with any pair that I've experimented with in the past because either a) they fall out or b) they start to go shady on the quality shortly after I get them. At any rate I decided to take a chance on this company, sound-squared, which I didn't hear of until I started hunting for yet another pair of earbuds that were semi-comfortable and decently priced since I have managed to lose every pair I've ever owned.

I must say that sound-sqaured is probably the best kept earbud secret. Not only is the sound quality AMAZING (in comparison to other earbuds i've tried, though I'm not an audiophile), but these don't fall out of my ears! As far as the sound quality, this is the first pair of earbuds I've owned where I can actually hear and even feel the bass vibrations in my music, and my volume isn't even turned halfway up! On top of that, these earbuds don't fall out! I have smaller than normal ears and I have had one heck of a time trying to find ones that either fit in my ear or don't pop out once I start working out because of sweaty ears. These things are amazing...I just finished a two hour workout of running and biking and sweat my [...] off and these things didn't budge! Plus they have extra buds of different sizes that you can play around with to get your fit. The over the ear piece is just an added bonus of security to keep the actual buds in place, and it manages to do its job quite well without being uncomfortable. Honestly, had I not been listening to music through the headphones, I wouldn't even have noticed they were there.

I've tried the sony and apple products that everyone seems to go for and complain about a month down the road. Try something new for a change! Go for this company! I feel like I might actually cry if I manage to lose these pair of earphones....they are THAT great.
