Wink Earbud, NOT in-ear, recommendations for ZuneHD please

I hate in-ear headphones. I really don't see why they're so popular. It's like wearing earplugs. They are uncomfortable, and although reducing external noises they increase internal ones! They create that horrible, muffled underwater sensation. Any movement on the cord creates loud noise in the earphone. It's distracting and unpleasant. Besides I don't want to be THAT isolated from my environment. If a truck's gonna run me over there's a chance I'll still here in time with regular earphones but with in-ear phones you're dead.
So, I need some recommendations for good earbud earphones (not in-ear) like the ones that ship with the ZuneHD 16GB but better quality. Any suggestions?

Also look at the Sansa earbuds - the sq is pretty good for an inexpensive set of ear buds.

I located the link:

Here is the ABi review of Sennheiser mx85's. About 30 bucks on Amazon. If you look below the first result, there's the previous generations, which ABi's review says are very similar, but different colors. They did say that the bass was cleaned up a bit from previous models.
