Alternative to Apple In-ear Headphones

Following my post last week on the Apple In-ear Headphones (US$79), I decided to take a look at what similar products I can source in the local market.  Not looking for those expensive ones like the Shure or Sennheiser, but something more affordable and cheaper than that of the Apple In-ear Headphones.

Finally found the Griffin TuneBuds which works well with the iPhone 3G, 4th generation iPod nano and iPod Classic (120GB).

The external mic also works well with the iPod nano (4th generation) built-in voice Memo feature.  As for the 2nd generation iPod touch, iPhone 3G, and the iPhone, the external mic works with Griffin’s iTalk (available from iTunes App Store.

The TuneBuds comes with 3 pairs of interchangeable ear cushions of three different sizes and a carrying case.  The price tag on it, HK$280 (US36), not bad right?
