Default What earphones should I get?

Hi, I own a ZuneHD, and I'm looking for earphones that will be best to my needs... I mostly listen to rock music, and some punk rock.
I wanted to get the Hippo vb, but it being sold only online. I'm looking for something like those that I can buy (not online) for no more than 70$ in Manhattan.

most Brick and Mortar options are overpriced...but the Klipsch S4 is the best option I have found and htey are sold in Best Buy stores. more than your budget though. For those of us that dont know manhattan can you name some stores in your area...maybe go browse them and post some of your options int he price range youa re comfortable with.

Second what IDvsEGO said. B&M is not the way to go to get bang for your buck. If you could give us some idea of what earphones stores have though maybe we can give you some pointers.

The Klipsch S4 is overpriced, but it is not a bad earphone, just there is a lot better for $80 available if you can order online. If you can stretch you budget or find one on sale though it is worth keeping in mind. Another $80 set that is overpriced but decent would be the Apple In-Ear Headphones. Be forewarned though, these are analytical might not suit your taste. I am not sure if Bestbuy carries these in-store or not, but I have heard good things about the h2o Surge. I think they run about $50.

I know this is a long shot, but could you order online if site to store was an option? (Like order at Walmart.com and then pick up your order at your local Walmart?) Something like that would open up a lot of options for you. Oh, and if there is a J&R nearby I would give it a look, I would imagine they carry a larger selection than Bestbuy and Walmart (those are the only options in my small town ).
