    Hi

    I have just purchased a Creative Zen Extra (60Gb), and need to ditch the included in-ear jobbies.....

    I am using bit rate of 192kb for the ripping, and will be using the player in the main during my 15minute walk to and from work, 3 days a week. External noise will be in the main from light road traffic & wind noise when mounting biking (once a monthish).

    Although price is not a major factor, i don't want waste money either!!

    if you can offer suggestions on something that will compliment my mp3 player, bitrate of 192, and has some noise cancelling maybe?

    thanks in advance

    Ray

    ps info on player can be found here

    I found the in-ear isolating style of phones ideal for my walk/bus journey to work, used them with Zen and iPod.

    On a scale of price (£20~ -> £400~ ;) ) try;

    Koss The-Plug
    Sony EX71
    Shure E2c
    Ety ER6
    Shure E3c
    Shure E4c (New)
    Ety ER4
    Shure E5c

    I've used the Sonys' and some Shures' before but found annouying shrill effects on some tracks with the Sonys'. The Shures' can be got cheaper off eBay direct from the states. I recommending looking at the Koss to someone at work and he seems happy with them on his Zen Extra 60GB. :smashin:
