Hey guys, Here's the scoop: I work in the Law Library at the University of Chicago for three-four hours at a time, three days a week. I can listen to music, but the headphones must be discreet - so no big headphones. My iPod earbuds' left speaker has begun farting on the lower notes at mid-volume - and I suppose I can't complain, because they've been in my pocket every day for the past year and couple of months, including during my two weeks in China last June, and circling North America by train all last July. My girlfriend has a pair of Koss earbuds that sound really good, but are a hassle to get in and out (even for her) and the cables look flimsy. Wouldn't work for me. Does anyone ave any recommendations? They must be durable, sound as good or better than the iPod earbuds, be discreet (meaning they must be earbuds), and fairly easy to get in and out (if a professor needs to ask me something).
