    ---previous post ooked like i was talking about phones, not headphones.. ---

    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

    Like bass? Sony MDR-EX71
    Want a bit more quality? Shure E2C

    I think Etymotics would be too thin sounding on an ipod.

    Etymotics only sound thin if they are not inserted into the ear canal properly. I use mine with my ipod with excellent results, though I must admit to never having heard the E2C's.
