    My biggest pet peeve ever is probably people on the bus listening to music way too loud so EVERYONE can hear it. AUGH.

    Noise cancelling means that the ear phones/headphones have and extra filter or electronics that block noise from outside. I does not mean that people around you can`t hear your music.

    Anywho, with proper in-ear phones, you don`t have this problem, even if they lack "real" noise cancelling.

    @opiebreath I used to have that problem too. The earphones that came with my iPod were the worst because they were too big and kept popping out of my ears! I have to buy earbuds that come with detachable caps and different size options so I can attach the smallest ones lol.

    If you put apple ipod earbuds in your ear top end first with the speaker grill part facing outwards and the top holes facing your ear canal, they don`t sound so shxtty anymore. Great bass from those lil piece of crap earbuds now. I look silly all day at work wearing them like that, but I`ll never wear them the regular way again. And I dunno if my ears are too small or too big but they actually fit better this way and don`t fall out as much.

    dude, skull candy`s are OVER RATED. I would go through at least 2 pairs a year. I finally broke down and bought some Bose ear buds..the sound is epic and they are so well made. The way the ear bud fits in is my only complaint on those :)

    I never enjoyed the feeling of earbuds, they hurt after wearing them for a while. I like the ear-encasing headphones better, or the ones with round pads. Sure they`re bulky but it`s more comfortable.

    I love skullcandy! Mine broke about 5 months after I got them for christmas and they said send them in if it`s from obvious wear and tear, we`ll give you a 50% off coupon and if not, we`ll replace them. *gots free headphones!)
