Lol yea I know thats why I wonder what they 'sounded' like right out of the package.

i almost bought some skullcandy's not ear buds, but some really nice artic camo ones at my local shop, but decided not, how is the bass on the buds? is it worth the 35-50$ i see around my town?

I love the bass in the buds. I use the Loudness EQ preset on my iPod. And it's awesome. I'm no AUDIOPHILE but you know.

These are mine. They're totally comfortable too.

Agreed, i love the way IEM's sound and I've owned and auditioned so many pairs you wouldnt believe, but I can't have them in my ear longer than an hour or they hurt. i like earbuds way better

its been about 30 hours - non stop playing since I posted above.
And to be honest, I think I can notice a bit of a difference in these Sennheiser HD201 headphones. It sounds less "hollow" then it did before.
