I'm using the ones from in the box, and they aren't bad. But I would like to upgrade soon, so look forward to hearing from others that have already made the investment.

I used the above on the HD2 and now on the HD7 and I have zero problems with them at all. Also use them when on the Mountain bike. Really great.

If you want the best, get Shure.

No need to waste money on really expensive earphones, while I'm not saying a pair of Tesco value earphones are all you should buy a £100+ pair is just a waste of money for a device that is not capable af making the most of what the earphones can do.

Yep, so I can get cheap headphones as opposed to Shure, but what about the requirement for inline controls. I see cheapish Logitech Ultimate Ears have controls but the websites just state they're iPhone compatible - who about WP7?

Anyone?

I would say it depends on the linouts for the earphones.

Technically they should work as I'm sure the iPhone uses a standard pinout, I actually use my Omnia2 earphones with a JVC extension cable and I'm more than happy with the sound.

I don't use inline controls though and technically these can affect the sound quality.

Vibra In-Ear Vibrating Earphones. Try this one. The effect is a bit strange but then you get used to it. :P And it is compatible with many smartphones.
