I keep the white earbuds for travelling around. When I don't use my iPod, I usually just chuck it in my bag. I'm not about to upgrade to $150 in-ear headphones and risk having the wiring fail because I put it in my messenger bag and it got knocked around. If these break, I'm out what... $10? And when I'm travelling, I usually keep my volume down low enough that I can be aware of my surroundings. Having your headphones at such a volume you can't hear when somebody asks you a question, or is yelling at you is rude IMO. So really, I don't give a fart about flabby bass, or hissy highs.
Let people think I'm part of the herd.
What they don't know is that all my music is legally paid for (and not that iTunes digital download crap), and my taste in music is superior to their latest top 40 club hits, out of tune indie wankery, or screamo shite.
When I bring my iPod to the office, then I bust out the big Grado cans.
