They look good to me.
I was probably the only one on earth saying the old ones were very uncomfortable but also very good sounding headphones. I hope these will be as good but finally comfortable to wear.

I always thought the originals were uncomfortable and sounded just horrible.

I've been really impressed by these, especially given the price. The ported design is very interesting and does help the sound quality - an interesting experiment is to plug one or both of the ports while you're listening to tunes.

And quite comfortable too.

Agreed, these are a HUGE step up in sound quality from the Apple earbuds of yore.

Actually, unless you're going to spend some relatively serious coin on IEM-type earphones, these are probably the best bang-for-buck that I've heard. At $30 they are pretty much a no-brainer and loseable/breakable/disposable without too many tears!

well, i haven't tried the Apple Ear Buds they just announced. They certainly look much better than the original ones. But I went into another direction. I went for the Martin Logan Mikros 70's. Once broken in, nice deep rich bass. Smooth high end and very nice sounding. Very happy with them, with the exception of the price....

But they keep falling out of your ear. The fit is awful! I wish there was a solution to this??

Monoprice sells $8- earbuds which sound great. Need to make sure they seal well in the ear
