Hat tip for these goes to The Wirecutter, which is the best kind of gear site because instead of inundating you with review after review (like we do!), they just tell you what thing in each category is THE thing to buy. For cheap -- really cheap, sub-$10 -- earbuds, they recommend these, from cheap-stuff emporium Monoprice. And we were skeptical enough at their price that we had to order some for ourselves.
