Default Does anyone actually use stocks bud's?

Hi,
Been really enjoying my Clip+ for a few days now with my Yuin PK2's.
Sad thing is that ive torn my last pair of earbud covers on the Yuin's, the good news is that the stock Clip+ earbud covers fit pretty well and sound reasonably good

I was then wondering who actually uses the stock Clip+ earbuds?, as i could do with a few pairs of the covers for future use with my Yuins.
(Just thought that there has to be a shed load either already binned or sitting in some drawer somewhere)

Please PM if you could be so kind as to post me some out

(If this needs moving to the classifieds, sorry about that!)

Cheers

James

Stock earbuds are certainly useful. I cut the drivers off stock earbuds and throw them away. The cables I keep for repairing other IEMs.

You could just waltz into the next electronic store and buy the cheapest earbuds you can find. Here you can get some for EUR 1 or 2... and their foam pads are usually the same as any other ones, and fit most other earbuds. That should be cheaper than shipping foam pads per mail.

Another cheap option: http://www.dealextreme.com/c/earphon...pagesort=price

Sure, I used my stock buds to test drive my O2 when I finished assembling it.

Sansa stock earbuds are among the greatest sounding stock earbuds I ever tried... Excellent soundstage, good definition and they are quite confy. I found them better than any Sony stock earbud or even the crappy ipod stocks or senn 9USD earbuds... Their major weakness is some lack of clarity. They do not sound crisp.
