    It depends what you use them for. I have a second gen touch as well, and I have both sets of Headphones with remotes. I like these for when I'm riding my motorcycle and noise from the wind is so loud that I absolutely can't hear a single thing with the other set. With these in, all I hear is my music (I also listen to a lot of audiobooks while I ride) and it sounds crystal clear.

    When I'm doing something more casual, I like the other set only because these are a little more tedious to shove in my ear nice and snug, and then pull out every time I need to hear what's going on around me.

    These do improve the perceived sound quality significantly when there are other noises around you.
