I'm not sure if I am posting this in the right forum, but I have seen iPod headphones distinguished from regular headphones. They both seem to have the same 3.5mm jack, so what's the difference (if there is one)? I have tried asking people and have googled it and still get no answer so I figured I'd try here.

Just wondering.... :whistling:

there's absolutely no difference...the only reason they're "ipod headphones" is so that someone will look at them and say "oooh these say they're for an IPOD...must mean these are the ones i need"...it's all marketing...like calling a langostine...(which by all accounts is a shrimp)....a lobster

and when you think about the quality of ipod headphones, it's not that good. ok, it's an InEar headphone so there's not that much to expect but I really have had better ones than my ipod headphones.

I got a pair of these for myself:

Philips sbchs320

They produce an OK sound quality for what they cost and a big plus is they stay in your ear even when you go running etc.

If you really want to enjoy your listening experience at home or wherever I would recommend something like this:


Sennheiser HD497

I got those hooked up to my computer and they really produce a great sound. The first time I listened to my music through the Sennheiser headphones, I thought I was listening to new music I had never heard before because it sounded so much better than it used to.

That's just my opinion, there's tons of good headphones out there but I just posted about these because I have a good experience with both of them.
