    My twins are getting an iPod for Christmas! (Shh.. don't tell them!)

    Which would you chose, over the ear headphones (covers ear) or ear buds that you stick in them? I'm hesitant to go with ear buds because of potential hearing loss.. don't know.

    What are your thoughts and ideas? Pros/Cons?

    I'd probably go with over the ear headphones myself. More of personal preference for me, because I have a hard time keeping ear buds in my ears. And if I were getting something like that for my kids, I would get over the ear headphones for that reason.

    My kids all prefer headphones-we got some really nice Sony ones at Walmart last year and they are still working great!

    Thanks for the input. Obviously that was the way I was leaning, but for size and compactness, I was open for the buds.

    I think ear head phones would be a better option, since they are kids..

    Headphones are better, since they have bigger speakers in them, and combined with a bigger enclosure around the ear this allows for increased sound quality. Another important component is an amplifier. If you never purchased one before, you should read an article on amp for HD650 to have an idea about the benefits it gives.
