I just bought a Zune player and for the life of me I can't stand the earbud's that came with it or earbuds in general. I don't want over the head style because they are too cumbersome (also due to my disability I have no dexterity in my hands). I would prefer a neckband headset style and so far I have my eyes on these . Here in Canada they are $60. I obviously want great sound and comfort but I don't want to spend over $100, $60 is enough for me. Do you guys/gals have any other suggestions.

Thanks again
Cam

These are cheap...and believe me, they sound pretty darned good for the price. Otherwise, you may want to try the Koss PortaPros which sound a bit better. Honestly, I can't think of any other $60 and below (neckband stlye) headphone that sound better than these.

Thanks, I've seen both of those but I was unsure of the Koss portables comfort level for a prolonged period of time.

Check out the iGrado if your looking for a good, really good imo, behind the neck headphone. Other than those the Koss KSC 75s that Marry referred to is a great choice.
