    How are the Sony Fontopia earbuds, the 51's and the 71's? How about the Shure e2c's? I'm looking to stay around $50 so that probably limits me to the sony's, are these going to be descent sound quality and comfortable, or should I put out for the e2c's?

    I've got the E2c's and IMO they sound quite good for the price. The isolation from outside noises is fantastic as well. If you look around you can find them for 75 dollars or less.

    I've been using the same pair of Koss's for 2 years now and they fit and sound awsome I think I payed around $15 for em, they sound really good..most other earphones I tried around that price range sucked, fit horrible and crappy sound. Havn't tried the sony fontopia, but if you havn't tried Koss you should look into and maybe save yourself a few bucks.

    i have the 51's... sounds really good and like people mentioned above , it cancels out most of the outside noise.. I'm very pleased with them.. btw, what's the difference btw 51 and 71? can't seem to find any technical difference. sepertable cord? that's it?
