    i saw a thread discussing the same but dint find exact answer for me...

    the thread gives ref to this site http://store.apple.com/us/browse/home/shop_ipod/ipod_accessories/headphones?mco=6A1E959
    ..but they r costly n all in dollars.... so i wanna know which wud be best for itouch 1G arrnd budget of 1k in bangalore...

    one more thing, i prefer earphones(ipod only type) rather than ear-plugs(ones which plugs into ur ear...like bose) as my ear make is such that i dint feel proper bass even with bose phones....thanx in advance

    ps: sorry to re-create a similar thread...

    Enjoy~!

    Sony MDR-EX35LP should fit perfectly but it costs 1.2k. Go for it.

    EX35LP is cosltier than EX32LP afaik as it has better audio quality and better earbuds that are lot lot more comfortable than that of 32LP but both are superb in-ear headphones and are highly recommended.

    I tried both and felt EX35LP is better. you better not test those outside as nobody knows who all have stuck those into their dirty ears.

    Go and get 35LP and you will be satisfied :)

    @desibond: i have taken a sample test of that one....my frnd has it....it sounds clear but i dint find enough bass in it.... although my frnd says he can but i felt itouch phones had more....so may b my ear shape not supporting it.... but hopefully i will stick wit sony itself....dunt think creative will be competitive enough...

    ps: theres one mr thing to fig out....my itouch phones say they r of 32 ohms where all these new ones r 16 ohms impedance....any loss or gain?

    Enjoy~!

    @speedyguy, yes. you do need to find the right fit to get the right bass level. Without proper fit, bass and some detail will be missing.

    You can also look for V-Moda headphones (deal through KMD at Techenclave). They are for those who love to have lot of bass and they certainly rock. But downside is that they are a bit expensive.

    this is the one am talking about. And it costs around 30$ and KMD charges something like 60rupees per dollar if I am right.
