I was looking at the Etymotic hf3s and they looked pretty sweet but I was worried about how deep they go.

i can't picture getting ear buds from ultimate ears and not getting the real deal. however im too cheap to get the real deal.
i tried some cheaper in ear ones from target recently ("skull candy" I think). couldn't really evaluate the sound bc they hurt my jaw by keeping the joint open
Yea, the apple in-ears look nice and I'm sure work well with the iPhone but I cant imagine they are the best sound quality.
I got a decent deal on the Ultimate Ears so I went with that. Should have them today and I'll be sure to report back.
For my old ipod I had the first Bose in-ears that came out (now the IE2 not sure what they were called a few years ago) and the sound quality was pretty good, but I felt that they never got loud enough. Fit wasnt bad with them I'll admit that. But, more importantly, they crapped out on me after about a year of light use (must have been a broken wire or something because when I shake the wire the right ear cuts out). For this reason I didnt even put the bose MIE2i on my list
