Earbuds vs. Headphones Debate

Do You Like Earbuds or Headphones Better?

I'm always surprised when people say they dislike earbuds, as a few people mentioned when I posted those Altec Lansing Swarovski-encrusted earbuds the other day — I guess because I'm so used to them and prefer something small that I can throw in my already-overloaded handbag. I wouldn't mind sporting these adorable Audiocubes striped headphones, though, but it would be a big departure for me as an everyday thing.

There's lots of pros and cons for each — earbuds are small and unobtrusive, but can be uncomfortable and the sound quality isn't always optimum, whereas headphones, with the ability for superior sound quality, can be bulky and make you look like a goof. So which do you prefer?
