I lost one of the rubber ear pieces from the he sony ear buds that I mentioned a while ago. This is the second pair that this happened to. I was really frustrated, so I decided just to go to Walgreens and pick up a pair of ear bud that were there.
The best ones that I saw there, were the Maxell Digital Ear Buds. They looked reasonable enough, so I picked up a pair. The next day when I was going to work on the train, I tried them out. They sound HORRIBLE!!! The sound that these earbud make completely is completely muffled.
I thought that I could deal with these, but after two days, I went to Fry's and bought a pair of Sony MDR-EX71SL earbuds. These sound so much better.
