This Bud's for You

Your tunes are only as good as your earbuds. Ditch the set that came free with your MP3 player and get a pair that better fits your lifestyle.

1. FOR WATER
The H20 Audio H3 headphones aren't just water resistant, they're 100% waterproof, capable of handling depths up to 10 feet. Equipped with aquatic silencer earbuds and a sport band, they're designed to reduce noise and seal out water while you swim or surf. Just detach the sport band and they morph into everyday earbuds. $50 @ h2oaudio.com

2. FOR LOOKING COOL
The V-Moda Vibe Duo's all-metal design keeps you looking stylish and sharp. Durable black fabric cables prevent the buds from getting tangled, while a selection of available colors, including Chrome and Gunmetal Rouge, give you an au courant look. Another perk? The unit's convenient call/music control button lets you easily toggle between chatting on the phone and rocking out. $101 @ v-moda.com
