um not sure if this is computer hardware.. but I guess it can be considered so. :p

ok.. I'm gonna buy a CD player, MD, or an mp3 jukebox and I'm aware that usually the stock headphones suck.. so I'm in an early search of better earbuds (earbud mainly cause of the size and portability). I heard that that Koss "The Plugg" is good.. or other Sony, and Sennheiser earbuds.. but I can't find a lot of reviews or comparisons between them. I am manily looking for earbuds that can pump quality bass.. i know earbuds typically the things for the job, but.. I'm sure there are decent ones out there..

suggestions? thanks

Some of the best buds are sony E-888s They will put out a decent amount of bass vrey precisly can clean. The sound produced is warm . Though if you want boomy bass E-71s (think that is the number) produce very good bass but say good bye to the middrange.
