The earbud/earclip hybrid A8 are extremely comfortable thanks to super-adjustable clips, and are guaranteed to earn envious looks from passers-by thanks to their standout design and attractive aluminum finish. They provide good detail but, like most earbuds, are a bit lacking in the low end. For the same $160 you could definitely find better sounding headphones (you could purchase two pairs of the stellar Grado SR60), but you'll be hard pressed to find any that are more comfortable or better looking. (The included leather travel case is a nice touch.)--Dan Frakes
