    So here I am, the owner of a Samsung Galaxy Nexus. I've had it for four months now. I love my phone despite the fact that I can't keep a G.D.(we all use this word when we get pissed.) 4G signal. On a side note, did I mention I love my phone? So! What would you call me if I told you that I put two products that shouldn't be together? Together. Well let me tell you. I've had many different ear buds and then some. I was curious bought my Buddy's' iPhone 5 earbuds, so I tried em cause he told me they were great. In fact, the chump wasn't lying. I was impressed by the quality of sound that was slithering into my sound hole. I noticed the type of tech that was put into these babys and I gotta tell ya, Louis Armstrong would've got a pair to hear his own music come out of. I went and bought a pair and connected it to my phone and well, the dancing spirit in me has had a soundgasm. The problem is I feel weird now cause the little droid in me resents the fact that I have done this. I look at this apple product and just wanna destroy it. Lmao. What's your take on this? Have you done this or have it this at the moment?.....netlinkz out!!!!!!

    Just do what Apple does .... find out who makes them and go right to the source. Buy them for cheap unbranded and claim they were your discovery. ;)

    Define you......ok. Let me take a shot at this. Im gonna say you are an extreme individual, who prefers to take function over form. You drive a late model import, probably a Toyota or Honda, and you have a pet shark.

    This. I believe this is how the world works in many cases.
    But yeah, headphones can make hell of a difference. I am glad to see that you have found something that works for you. i am not yet satisfied with my headphones yet.

    I've never really cared what my headphones sound like, usually i really can't tell if they're good or bad, i just buy 5$ ones at the store and they are good enough for me :p

    Never found some in ear buds that fit my ears so figured I'd try out the new Apple ones. Yep, they're great. Miss noise canceling that the in ear ones accomplish, but these are far more comfortable. Also, check out this app if you want to (partially) utilize the controls on your Gnex:

    Can't get the volume buttons to work, but the center button does for various controls.

    1st.. if you are comparing the new ip5 earbuds to your free set on your android device... that is not really a fair deal. Most do not send very good sets.

    2nd.. i have compared them to my mid-range Moto earbuds that i paid $40 (on sale from $70). My friend got a new ip5.. and we both tested it. we both agree my moto sounds better. the ip5 have small/weak bass.

    3rd.. if you like it.. no body will care. but it is a good idea to find non-apple similar tech.. dont feed the monster!

    This.

    I listen to podcasts and talk radio, almost exclusively though, so I may not be the best canditate to tell you how different sets of headphones sound.

    That being said, I find you to be an eccentric individual, who can't pick a side :D
