Earphones


#1

Hey y’all,

I’ve been shopping for earphones and am just asking around for people’s opinion. I need something inconspicuous like earbuds and such. I’ve had the Phillips SHE6000/28 before and thought they were great. Although these were great, I’ve been looking around if there was anything a bit performance/higher end worth the money on the market.

It seems Bose’s IE2 are famous while I’ve looked into Thinksound’s line-up. Other than that, I don’t know too much about earphones.

Can y’all give me your opinions, experiences and such?

There used to be a thread with a ton of info about this, but I can’t access anymore/was deleted since the forum upgrade.

I don’t think you can go wrong with anything sennheiser.


#3

Beats by Dr. Dre, close thread.


#4

Reopen thread.

Shure.

Bought my first pair six years ago, haven’t gone back since.

loooooooool

I like Audio Technica’s stuff. Very clear sound.


#6

I’m going to assume you’re kidding?

Been browsing Audio Technica’s shop. Wish I had more money. :bluu:

buying skullcandy’s is like wanting your earbuds to short within a months time


#8

I bought Skull Candy’s a few years ago on sale and they were okay for what I paid but they’re purely style over substance. Carelessly left them out one day though and my puppy chewed the wires up bad. Gives me an excuse to shop around anyway.

I need some tips on taking care of mine. Every couple of months I have to get a new pair and it’s very annoying. At some point I lose sound on one end and later on in both. At first I used to wrap them around my MP3 but switched to keeping the cords straight but it doesn’t seem to matter. I don’t want to spend too much money and I usually don’t. I spend about 15 to 30 bucks per pair and once I bought a pair of Monster’s for 50. So how do I extend the “life” of my earphones?

You can get good headphones from AT for like $120 on Amazon. Waaaaaaaaaaay cheaper than beats.


#12

Either go for Sennheiser or Bose though Creative earphones are pretty good as well.


#13

You buy earphones that are around $60-$80 from a company that doesn’t overprice their shit like Monster.

You just will not get long lasting ear-phones for cheap. If you are paying 30 every 3-4 months, might as well save up, and get a good pair that will last you years.

Went from the Westone UM1 to the Westone 4. Enormous difference in sound quality. I was shocked at how much better everything sounded. I thought my UM1s sounded good, but once I got the 4s, the UM1s sounded like little tin cans. Still, the 4s cost a ton, so if you don’t listen to music often, spending that much is probably not worth it. To me, the drastic improvement in sound quality was worth the price. Before I got the 4s, I never thought I’d say that about such expensive earphones.

For cheaper options, the Fischer Audio DBA 02 and Head Direct RE0 are excellent choices.

I use Beyerdynamics DT 770 PRO. Clear and sweet bass quality. Plus, they can double as ear muffs in the winter with the felted ear cups.


#16

Yeah, gotta pay up for quality. Not surprised at that one bit. But what about personal care?


#17

Monster Turbines are boss and not over priced. Don’t listen to Gasarookie.

Hey y’all, I appreciate everyone’s input. With the research that I have done thanks to everyone’s input, I’ve decided to go with these: ATH-CK7ASV Titanium In-Ear Headphones

Sweet dude. I use these myself: http://www.audio-technica.com/cms/headphones/3a7a722cee1e3fe9/index.html

amazing sound for clip-ons

I really want to get those clip-ons but there’s a looming postal strike headed my way so if I order them now I might not see them forever.
