    I have several pairs of those ear buds because I have an iPhone, iPod nano and old iPod shuffle and one may have even come with my iPad. It is kind of like the chargers, I have those all over the place too. I bought some other ear buds that stick in your ear and are supposed to sound better, but they hurt terribly after a while. It came with several sizes, but none fit well (not to fall out) and were comfortable. The only time I ever use ear buds at all is at the gym, so I don't think it is bothering anyone unless it is the fashion issue with them being Apple/white.

    It wouldn't help. Asians were sort of "honorary whites" during to good-old days of segregation.

    They still do in the UK. Many trains have a 'Quiet Carriage', no phones, no ipods, no gameboys, no screaming babies, no mariachi bands....peace.

    FYI your allowed to criticize ppl when they do something that bothers everyone within earshot.

    You know its like when a crime is commited and they identify the guy in the news as 6 foot wearing a black shirt and jeans, no mention of ethnicity, lest it be racist. [​IMG]

    How about instead of banning the earbuds we just ban people from listening to them at such high volumes? Problem solved and everyone gets to keep their shit.

    lol... I just realized most (alleged) criminals caught and shown in our local news gets the required face-to-face meeting with their accusers which leads to the required beat down for a few minutes by the accuser while the cops look on with amusement. 3rd world law enforcement ftw!

    I wouldn't blast music if people didn't feel so comfortable having idiotic conversations on public transit.

    I don't want to hear tales of your troubles
    I don't want to hear tales of your successes

    ...and Apple Earphones are the best sounding in their price category... it's the only Apple product worth buying...

    The default bundled Apple buds are probably not for you then.

    Probably the Apple IEMs are good. http://www.apple.com/ipod/in-ear-headphones/ However the cheapo buds which come with iPhones, iPads and iPods are bloody awful, but most people seem to use them, a shame considering how much they paid for their Apple devices. They just don't stay-in, are uncomfortable, tinny, let in unwanted noises, break too easily.

    OP is a piece of shit. Why is it of any importance what ethnicity some one is when listening to music? Ok, so you have some idiotic rant about banning Apple headphones. Not sure how you thought that was realistic. But clearly you're a closet bigot when race/ethnicity crops up for no good reason. Plus you look like an smug idiot in your picture.
