That looks like a good deal although £65 for a pair of ear buds is still a lot. I've got a pair of these which are pretty awesome quality and cost me £17.99. As they hook over your ears, they're also ideal for running as they don't fall off.

F-me! You guys do get ripped off a lot on quite a few things don't ya? Even at the "discounted" price they're being sold on Amazon UK, they're still about $100+ more than you can get at the U.S. Amazon.
The price tag is a bit steep but the noise cancelling ability is quite amazing.A mate of mine has a pair so I tried them out on a plane we were on and was genuinely amazed.

I need an "in-ear" solution. Besides, all the other bill-oddies that have them, can't be wrong surely.

The only other pair of in-ear phones that were nearly as good were a pair of Skull-Candies.
**shrugs**

a lot of it depends on what you want to listen to. if your idea of good music is nosebleed techno or sega hardcore, beats probably dont make it sound much worse. you're just being ripped off. ;)
if you genuinely like the sound, spend the money on skullkandies - you wont be nearly as gutted when they break.
if you like listening to anything with a bit of subtlety to it, I'd say buy almost anything other than beats.
Sennheiser always make good stuff, either in-ears or headband ones. the head-fi forums are a good place to start looking and for reviews to links and whatknot.
you might want to try one of these as well - http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B0026RJQJ6/?tag=armrumser-21 - you wouldnt believe the difference it makes to the sound. I have one of these, a Cowon i9, and a pair of Hifiman RE-0 for when I'm out, and a pair of HD-201s at work. best sound I think I'm going to get without spending three figures on a pair of Shures or the like.
