Dingbatt: Interesting that you think they are better than the One X ones. I have been so disappointed by the ones that came with my Hero, Desire HD and OneX that I didn't even bother taking the ones that came with my One out of their packaging. Might be worth carrying around as a backup after all.
I wasn't going to bother unwrapping them initially but yeah I was pleasantly surprised. Guess the fact HTC has opted to go big on media required them to put some effort in to earphones for a change.
