I have a pair of Sennheiser HD202s. They're awesome headphones, but they're obviously not so great when I'm outside, because of the size, and because I can't hear anything because of the noise of cars, buses, etc. Coupled with this, the fact that the earbuds that my iPod came with are failing (finally!), and the fact that I finally found a part-time job and have some money again, I would like to buy a set of replacement earbuds. I'd really like something that provides sound quality about par with the HD202s, and which has some sort of passive noise cancelling. I'm leaning towards the Logitech Ultimate Ears Metro.fi 170, since I can get that for a similar price to what I got the HD202s for, but I'm open to suggestions. Thanks in advance!

And you're willing to spend how much, exactly?

Sorry, but ear buds suck ass, and for a pair that actually sounds not like a cat is dying inside, you pay +50€.

About NZ$50 to $100, something like US$30-60-ish.

From another forum I got two suggestions; the Creative EP630 and the Sennheiser CX300 II. Both are within my budget - I can get the EP630s for about NZ$45, and the CX300 IIs for $80. I've heard that they sound quite similar, but there are also quite a few reviews which say that the EP630s sound absolutely shit compared to the CX300s; the price difference definitely seems disproportionately large for them to be roughly equal in quality. Any opinions? And what about the other Sennheiser earbuds - what are the differences between them?

I just recently bought the Zune Premium Earphones V1 off of Amazon for $5 and I think they're great. They're excellent at blocking out sound and are on sale if you order them off of Amazon. However, I would recommend V2 if you had the extra money, they have a few upgraded components but V1 is still great for the price. High sound quality, comfortable, and great at blocking out sound, well just read the reviews and you'll see what I mean. And they're 100% compatible with an iPod or any other MP3 player.

I would go for the CX300's. I absolutely hate earbuds, and I will almost certainly never voluntarily buy a pair, but I've used these before, and they're alright compared to the normal trash garbage that earbuds generally are. Unlike other earbuds I've suffered through, they didn't sound like my cell phone speakers, and they didn't fall out 5 times per minute.

I have the zune v2 headphones and the hd202's, they are really good at blocking out sound and don't sound too bad. However, they do sound more narrow and flatter than the hd202's so you probably would want to go with something else. The cx300's would probably be the closest to the hd202's
