Same crappy ones I got with my Zune 2 8GB. Not the so-called Premium ones that the 80GB and 120GB models came with I believe.

I gotta say I LOVE the Zune software, it plays music and looks nice. Just what I want. And it is easy to get album art and song info.

That's why I think it's a stupid idea from microsoft to retire them from canadian market. they say it was not worth because they only have 2% of market space, after 2 years on market 2 is still pretty good and they are growing and growing. The second my Archos die ( if any of you want one just PM me:P ) or I sell it I will get back to the zune for sure I fell in love with this little monster first time I saw it! I buy my Zune 80GB ( gen 2) theday it came out at futureshop. I was the first sell in the quebec province since I buy it 5 minut beore the store open and it was released at 9 mouhahaha. I miss him so hard! Zune software is pretty good TBH and even if I have no more zune I am still using it to listen my music because it work great and is easy to use. But, it use a lot of CPU so when I fold I get some little lag using the soft.

IIRC and AFAIK Zune has not moved back to Canada as the gov't doesn't like the fact they don't use DRM on their store. If they can't use their marketplace, it doesn't make much sense for them - that's less than half of the bundle.

My 120GB came with the crappy regular earbuds, not the 'premium' ones (which are still pretty bad from what I've heard). I never bothered to use them. Right now I'm borrowing a pair of Sony EX52s until I get my broken EP-630s replaced.

The Zune HD has been known to have web surfing issues. I guess it all goes down to the fact that it's based off IE6, crunched down to touch screen sensitivity, and not optimized.

I'm glad that Microsoft is taking the ideas of the Zune interface and applying them to their upcoming phone. I'm in the market for a new phone with a very easy, intuitive interface. My Blackberry Bold just doesn't cut it anymore.
