    Yes, these are far better than the headphones that come with an iPod. They are incredibly comfortable and the sound quality is far better than any other pair of headphones I've owned (I have several years of experience as an audio engineer, so I've tried quite a few pairs of headphones).

    At first, the headphones weren't making a good seal with my ears, and I wasn't getting any bass. When I tried a different set of tips and pushed them into my ears a little bit more, and the difference was greatly noticeable. Now, whenever I use the stock headphones, I wonder how I got by for so many years without these.

    I would definitely spend the extra money - it is well worth it!
