I know some folks in the audiophile community would scoff at me but I got a pair of 11mm "SkullCandy Full Metal Jacket" ear buds for free from mycokerewards.com and they are actually really good! I notice lots of ambient sounds I missed without the headphones and the bass quality is also top notch! I definitely recommend them but check around on the price before you buy... I got mine for free but I think the retail is closer to $50...
