I have a new, sealed in the box, set of black V-moda Vibe Duo Nero headphones. These retail for $100 plus tax, but sound as good as sets that cost twice as much. I have another pair that I use with my iPhone and I love them. If you're still using the earbuds that came with your iPod then you don't know what you're missing. Get a set of good earbuds and you'll be happy you did.
