    I'm sure this has been covered but I cant find it...Are there any earbuds that can be used with a Shure in ear system? meaning does anyone use like Bose or any other type of buds instead of having to purchase high priced dual driver buds? Is this even optional, practical, stupid etc? Thanks in advance for not treating me like its a retarded question!!

    Most any bud can be used with most any pack. An exception would be unusually inefficient buds couple with an unusually low gain (or low output swing) pack. I've not yet heard of any such problem.

    The Shure bodypack has a 1/8 stereo output jack, so it will work with pretty much every earbud on the market today. So you'll have plenty of options. Try to find a brand that has good low end (that usually requires at least two drivers) and fits comfortably in your ear. A good fit will help with isolation and improve fidelity. As for specific recomendations, UE's TripleFi 10s get a lot of love around here. They are also pretty popular over at the headfi.org forums.

    I'm a big fan of my Etymotic MC5s since they don't have a boost in the low frequencies. But yes, any earbuds you like the sound of should work just fine for IEMs.
