Im not a fan of decent prices. I buy what I want. And then I act like an elitist prick by never telling anyone about them.

I really liked the sound on these, but the casing will break before you know it. Glue or tape will kind of fix it though. Pretty cheap too.

 

Ultimate Ears SuperFi 5eb

I've had these for about 2 years, and they're still going strong. When I lived in Japan I used them everyday on the train, and they don't look beat up at all. More expensive, but more awesome.

I dont suggest Skull Candy if you use em everyday, mines shorted out after a month or so, and they were about 25 bucks

Spend some more money and get the BOSE ear buds. Best money I ever spent. And they have a great replacement program. I have had mine for going on 2 years when the wire started to fray at the connection to where they would plug into my ipod. I called them up, they apologized for what happened. They said to ship my old ones to them and they would ship me a brand new pair of newer gen earbuds plus a brand new warranty upon recieving my old set. Not a bad deal if you ask me. Yes they are pricey but worth every penny.

Bose is the best IMO.

I've tried a few other brands but the way the bose fits in your ear and doesn't fall out is what has me sold.

They come with different sized adapters for different sized ear holes and fit perfect once you have the right size.

I also like the way you can turn them up loud and it's not annoying everyone else on the train with excess wasted treble spewing out of them.

I got myself a pair, then some for wifey later on, and then some for my mom when she got an ipod, thought I lost mine so copped another pair then found my old ones.

$400 on ear buds in two years.

as far as any small speaker is concerned, bose has the best quality per dollar out there. Their frequency ranges are wider than most, and (most lines) perform very well at high volume.

Definitely go for BOSE if you want quality.

im gonna have to disagree about going to bose if you want quality...

 

I had a pair of Shure E4Cs for a few years, but they were always too heavy to do anything with besides sit and listen to music.

 

also, when the cord rubs against your shirt or whatever it sounds like when you have one of these in your ears

skull candies cords are pussy and will break within the month at the base of the headphones, even the metal ones.

 

if you want decent sound quality and indestructible headphones for cheap, go with these JVC headphones, they're usually like 10 dollars and sound better than skull candies and they usually last me like 4-6 months and im pretty hard on them

anyone know some headphone

with crisp sound and good bass?

 

 

 

Ive had a pair of Technics RPDJ-1200 headphones for several years (got em for $70 when they came out) and have found the bass response and clarity to be unmatched in any headphones under $250 bucks..

 

they've definitely stood the test of time.

looks like they've been updated to a model called RPDJ1200A

Mine are black and im not entirely sure if thats the exact model as the ones i have but they look an awful lot like em. Very nice, they cost me almost 200 dollars but when i fucked em up, sent em back and they replaced them with better ones.

 

I endorse them. Very good sound canceling, very good sound

These JVC's are the shit. They are cheap, sound great and can be extremely loud when your ipod is at full volume. One of the ear bud wires usually gets fucked up and kills one ear after about 3 months because im really really hard on mine. They stay in my ears all day off or on. For $10 you cant beat them. You can switch colors every time you replace them so you stay fly.

maybe i'm a sound elitist but i cant believe we got dudes talking about how good a pair of jvc and sony earbuds are.

 

i mean word, they're good for using all the time so you dont have to worry about them... but their sound quality is a joke.
