Monoprice probably has the best deals on hdmi cables, and better yet..they ship out of the US. Chino,CA to be more precise. You can even do local pickup if you live in the area. No more than about 5 bucks per cable.
Wait...people actually USE the included earbuds that come with phones? I must be an oddity then. I spent $249 on a good pair of Klipsch semi-noise cancelling earbuds. I also have a nice pair of Sony stereo bluetooth headsets. If you like music, then there's no way that you use the included set that comes with phones these days.
