Bang & Olufsen iPod Earphones

Does anybody out there own a pair of Bang & Olufsen iPod Earphones? I'm thinking that with the amount of iPodding I do at work it might be nice to have something better than the standard-issue MacBuds but I'm not sure how the hookie-guys on the B&Os would get along with my glasses frames so I figured that maybe if one of you owns a pair they could opine about this …

just shuffling along on the iPod . . . on the evening of 28 Dec 2005

The rules (as passed along by holzman): Take out your iPod or other musical device. Put it in “random” mode. Hit “play.” Write down the first ten tracks that come up—and no fair putting in ones you think will make you look cool, or omitting ones that make you look like a total dork.

My rules: In the evening when I get in the car to go to work, I plug in & turn on the iPod, turn on the radio, and set the iPod to shuffle. I continue in shuffle mode until at least ten tunes have played; if ten tunes haven't played by the time I get to work, I pause the iPod, go in, then continue listening. (Once at least ten tunes have played, I sometimes listen to other, specific things. Sometimes I leave it on “shuffle” for the night.) When I get home in the morning, I capture the first ten tunes played.
