this style of 'in ear' never fits in my ear
Sennheiser makes quality products for sure. I own a few sets of headphones from them.
Does anyone know how comfortable these actually are? The headphones that come with iPods/iPhones always end up hurting my ears and I can't wear them very long. These at least look a little bit softer on the outside.

doesn't "in-ear" mean something else....these are buds
These sound GREAT in the latest generation ipod touch. They also match better than the stock white earbuds.
Newegg's comments/review section usually seems pretty helpful for me.
these are the worst things i have ever used. and i'm not just talking headphones... i mean EVERYTHING.
Good price, good headphones. A 2 pack is necessary as I have a nasty habit of misplacing these things.
The darn foam covers always fall off on me- never to be found again.

I love these headphones, I go running with them and they feel good even after a long run. The sound quality is awesome compared to all of the other in-ear headphones that I have owned.
If you've never listened to your laptop or smartphone through decent quality earphones, please, do yourself a favor and try a pair. You'll be amazed by what you were missing!

Sennheiser MX400 In-Ear Headphones with Ear Cushions
These produce good sound quality, and as someone who likes this type of earbud, I think they are comfortable. The last time this two-pack was offered on Woot, I bought it. I'd buy again, but I have only used one of the two sets of earbuds from last time. I think this is a great deal.
Is this a good price? I've been needing new headphones, but I'm on the broke college kid budget...
I bought these from Buy.com a few months ago when they were $8 + free shipping. I stopped using them because they're the absolute biggest pair of earbuds I've ever tried.
I've never had a problem with earbuds being too big previously (I've had many pair over the years), but these actually made the part where they go in feel like they were stretching. Pretty painful after a while. I've moved on to Jlabs J4 earbuds. Not comparable because those are $40, but they're super durable and fit well and won't be disposable as far as I can tell.
Bought 6 of these last time they were up on woot and am still happily using them. Some have been lost, others can still be found.
The foam things _do_ come off fairly easily if I am carrying them around in the pockets of my jeans, but if they're in my backpack or coat, they tend to stay on.
The sound quality is pretty alright. Nowhere near the Sennheisers that I used when DJing, but seeing as these are a fraction of the price, you can't expect too much ; )
Try these. My kids use them and they're great. Very soft and easy to install.

If they are such good quality, why do you need a "few"? I can understand 2... MAYBE 3 tops (wrap-around the ear, reg. headphones, and in-ear). But why a few?
How long is the cord - I need a 4 foot pair, since the computer sits on the floor and the usual cord length doesn't reach.

It's made by a good quality company, but you can get JVC GUMY headphones from Target, Walmart for 10 bucks. I would go with these because they have a solid 2 year warranty.
these are buds, in-ears have the rubber peice that channels the sound into your ear.

Thanks for the info! I need a pair that I can use at work as well as when I go running, so we'll see how they work out

Some websites claim 100CM which is 3.28 feet. Pretty standard cord length.
Yes indeedy, it is a good price. I need it to be a good price because short of super-gluing earbuds to my ears, I have yet to come up with a way to keep my headphones/buds from wandering off. Got these last time on a two-fer Tuesday and can't put my hands on nary a one of them now. They are someplace in the house/car/yard I'm sure of it.
In for 1. I've needed some new buds for work and working out. Plus, I had a Woot coupon code that was near expiration. I'll take these for $3.75 a piece.
When Woot routinely offers amazing deals on the REAL in-ear ear buds with the silicon covers, why would anyone go back to these foam-covered earbuds that refuse to stay in or even ON the ear?
Doggone it, Woot! I *had* to get up and grab my glasses to read the fine print.
And, I though Woot! was all about inclusiveness.
are these symmetrical or asymmetrical cables? how long's the V part?
Ugh ... looks like re-branded Coby headphones from the $1 store...

I have some high end HD555's for Work and Play. And 2 sets of Sennheiser Buds (One set is in-ear and one normal) which I use for working out, relaxing, etc...
These are in my ears right now. My biggest frustration is that the cord is way too short, even for laptop use.
I love Sennheiser, they make the greatest headphones out there, bar none. Just google the Sennheiser Orpheus if you don't believe me. Yeah, it's from those guys that make the $30,000 headphones. Do these compare to those? No no no. Do they decimate all the competition with every decibel and beat? Yes yes yes. I have never ever loved a pair of earbuds more than these.

The cables are symmetrical. The "V" part is 12", 13 if you count the earbuds. The rest of the cord is 27"
You do not know how happy I am to see these back on the site! :D I bought the same exact earphones last year (July, also a 2 for Tue), and they are the longest lasting earphones I've ever used in my life. I used to only buy Sony's, but one bud would always die after a short time. ALWAYS. I honestly thought I was cursed or something. Anyway, like most earphones, they do hurt after long periods of time, but sound quality is great (it's Sennheiser duhhhh), and the cord is a decent length. As I think someone also mentioned, the foam covers slips off a bit easily, but you could always get replacements? And after I lost them a few days ago, it's actually more comfortable without them.
TL;DR Thanks woot!!
Um, these look like earbud style headphones, not in-ear.
Honestly, I've been on in-ear headphones for so long I kinda forgot that there were still people out there that still wore this uncomfortable turn-the-volume-up-louder-than-it-needs-to-be style of headphones.
Real in-ear headphones can be used at such a lower volume level, I'd imagine there's some kind of health benefits. These are the kind you can hear across the room because you have to crank up your iPod to max volume to get any kind of peace and quiet.
I bought a pair of these awhile ago, and I was not happy. Mainly becuz they are rather larger and would hurt my ears after extended use. Combine that with the fact that the sound is not nearly as good as SkullCandy Earbuds, they spend their time in my drawer waiting to be used in an emergency situation when my other earbuds break.

How old are your kids? My kids are 5 and 7.. and I'm thinking they would be too large for their ears?
How large are the ear-buds..... say compared to apples standard stock buds that come with the ipods?
