new to smartphones here, I saw that the nexus ones came with some pretty good ear buds but sadly the incredible will not. What type of ear buds would you recommend? I'd really like to get my hands on the ones that had the android logo in the back, but cant seem to find them on the web.

i remember back in the day when i was satisfied with $20 earphones...
jvc makes some decent ones for cheap, and some people really like skullcandy.
you'll need to get an adapter or something to add a mic to them for phone calls though. i know shure makes one, but it's pricey, just like everything else they make

If you're not "anti-apple", the iPhone's headphone+mic is pretty good. I've use it for my 9700, Pre, N1 & iPhone 3Gs and love how loud the headphone and clear the mic is.

Yeah I had the Shure's too (I can't remember which model). I really didn't like them that much. I hear the UE's are much better.
To the OP, if it were me, I'd go to Amazon.com and look at headphones in your price range. The nice thing about Amazon, is that they usually have a ton of reviews to skim through. Or, just get the one's Roy posted, although I have no idea what they are lol.

When my Apple ear buds stopped working because the wire came loose and I dropped another pair into the toilet on the train a week later I looked for a not-too-expensive alternative that I didn't have to worry about. I bought a pair of JVC Gumy's for under $10 at Best Buy and I was and still am blown away at how good they sound, especially for the money. They are certainly better than the Apple's IMHO.
Amazon.com: JVC HA-F140-B Gumy Earbuds (Olive Black): Electronics
I've tried some of the really expensive earbuds too but couldn't justify the price, or having to worry about dropping them in the toilet. LOL
