Exclamation Which earbuds for my E51??

Can anyone suggest/recommend a good pair of 2.5mm earbuds or earphones for my E51 please?
I do NOT like using 2.5mm to 3.5mm adapters
Model numbers and supplier would be much appreciated.

Just so happens I bought some recently, I dont like adaptors either.

http://www.amazon.co.uk/exec/obidos/ASIN/B000UE28CE

Slightly pricey, but then all 2.5mm headphones are. In fact these are about 5 more than the same version in 3.5mm.

Comes with adaptors, in case you have smaller or larger ears than normal.

Have found them to be very good.

Thanks bartmanekul - I have already seen these but was unsure whether I fancied the "asymetrical" cord - are they comfortable with this type of cord or do they want to fall to one side like many others that are "lop sided"?

Really depends how you use them. But even though I use them when exercising (thus hanging in a straight line), they dont seem to pull to one side.

Sincere apologies if this is obvious, but you do know that the longer lead is mean to go behind your head? In which case there is no issue(Or I have never noticed one) with them falling out?

You can of course get a little adaptor for about £2 to use good 3.5mm headphones with... Check out amazon and ebay but watch for the ones people say are tempremental...

Arrived yesterday - put them through their "paces" last night and :-

LIKES:-

Sound quality - excellent.
Ear fit - excellent.
Build quality - excellent.

DISLIKES:-

Do not like the asymetrical cable (I still prefer central/equal cables).
Definately do NOT like the right angle connecter (would have preferred a straight connecter).
Do not like the fact that they are about 5 GBP dearer than their 3.5mm "brothers".

Overall - I would recommend these 2.5mm CX300's to anyone providing they are willing to "put up" with the above dislikes.

Thanks bartmanekul for the original recommendation.
