Excerpt: You've got your new iPod or MP3 player, loaded up some songs and embraced the digital life. Trouble is, it probably isn't sounding as good as you hoped. Before you box up your Creative Zen Vision or your SanDisk Sansa you might want to check to see if it’s the headphones. Manufacturers large and small are renowned for shipping low quality headphones in the box, not only to help cut costs, but also to encourage you to buy new and improved upgraded versions.
Pros: Styling, blocks out ambient noise, better than the 'phones you get in the box of your MP3 player
Cons: Trouble reproducing bass, carry case doesn't carry everything
