    I just got a Creative Zen Mozaic and the headphones it came with are nice! But the audio quality is pretty damn bad. I hooked my Razer Piranha headset up to them and it sounds amazing but I need some buds for on the go cause I know I will break a pair of headphones :laugh:

    Here is the site I will be buying from:
    http://www.newegg.com/Store/SubCategory.aspx?SubCategory=70&name=Headphones-Accessories
    Unless there is a wicked nice deal somewhere else I will be buying NewEgg.

    Its very small I recommend it to everyone :)

    humm I'd go with Sony buds for cheap headphones, try to get a duel driver (bass driver?) one duel something anyway or twin.

    I just got the Etymotic ER6i Isolator headphones and I love them. can be found in the USA for like $80 + taxes check out Amazon, trust me man they rule!

    humm well I think a pair of sony twin driver headphones will do you very good. They handle bass very nicely especially for the price.

    Something like this http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16826159014

    "Acoustic Twin Turbo Circuit for enhanced sound, High-powered Neodymium Magnets" if you dont think those will fit you good make sure they have theses Sony features.

    Edit: Nice pick Erocker! I had an awsome pair of Sony clip on's years ago but they dont make them anymore :( they had real powerful bass for clip-ons not like the last ones I bought from them. Im sure the ones you pointed out are prob even better sounding but thier not as compact as I like. excelent for home though @ 15$ I might get a pair!

    If I go to best buy I will buy some MDR-ED21LP's :)

    Im sure they will sound good as long as they stay in, if they dont stay in right than you could always say they dont work lol but looking closer at them they look like they fit like normal earbuds but with a cannal for the sound to go in your ear better!

    Best Buy had a crap selection but they had some sony buds for 20$ that I just grabbed.. They had some generic brands that looked cool but I am very happy with the sony's. They fit great and sound great.
