Each of the ear buds in the accompanying figures, i.e., a first ear bud and a second ear bud, may be a part of a headset that may be placed, i.e., worn, in a person's ears.

Line shading is used in the accompanying Figures to convey surface shading and contouring, and not texture, in FIGS. 1-18.

The broken lines shown in the FIGS. 1-18 illustrate portions of the ear bud that form no part of the claimed design; the dash-dot-dash boundary rectangle is used to indicate a transition from claimed subject matter to unclaimed subject matter. In FIGS. 19-36, the dash-dash broken lines illustrate wireframe lines that form not part of the claimed design.

Claims

We claim the ornamental design for the ear buds for headset, as shown and described.
