    Some earbuds I found in Walmart - Jell-something or Jelly-something. They come in different colors, they sound good and they're comfortable. And they're pretty cheap.

    I'm a semi pro musician whose been making & recording music for about 30 years so I am a bit of an audiophile. I'll let you in on something I learned after spending literally thousands of dollars on headphones, in ear monitors and ear buds. The cheapo apple ear buds with with foam cushions put on them will give you just as good bass and overall frequency response as any pair of high dollar ear buds you can buy. Any sound engineer who has bothered to test them will tell you the same thing. Headphones are a different animal but if you use ear buds, try my suggestion and you will be amazed.

    I watch videos and movies and streams all the time on my phone...I don't want anything too expensive for a task as that. Apple ones? I'll see what kind of apple ones match up with it.

    Polk Audio UltraFocus 6000 noise cancelling. I got them online at a huge discount, but, sorry, can't remember where. They are great. I also have a pair of Plantronics Backbeat G02 Bluetooth stereo earbuds. They are great. But, drawback of both is the size of the bud.

    I am using a pair that came with a HTC tattoo, the sound reproduction is now a rich full sound.
    Seems strange that samsung would package a set of headphones that sound worse than what i got with a scanning radio from a pound shop.

    Im using a pair of RHA MA 750i iems, recently changing from Ultimate Ears 600vi. Combined with the Viper 4 Android app the sound quality is brilliant IMO. Love it.

    I have some Sony ear buds with foam covers. Also use a pair of Logitech H800 Wireless Bluetooth headphones, which are my favorite of the two.

    I got the Soul SL99 as a gift and I love them. That said, I tend to agree with AeolianReflex.

    Skull Candy Titans are without a doubt the best earbuds I've found for under $100. And the kicker is that they are $35.

    They are comfortable, sound great, and cheap. they're also durable. I've had the same pair for over 4 years, and it's been through the clothes washer.

    Far and away better quality than the old Apple ear buds. I haven't used the new-shape Apple 'buds. I do know that the 'buds that came with my S4 are pretty decent quality for 'included'... but I mainly use them when I have forgotten my Skull Candy 'buds - they are my emergency, keep in the car set, or if I need handsfree phone operation in the car.
