If you’re still using the earbuds that came with your iPod, it’s time for an upgrade to Ultimate Ears. Their
top-of-the-line, custom-fitted, studio reference model is designed for professionals and celebrities, and priced accordingly at $900! But the consumer models are a sound investment for anyone who spends a lot of time listening to portable music. Regularly $99-249, they’re $69-169 at Amazon.com.
