These are all I use.

i use these for my phone and they have served me well for what i need for the commute to college and back.TBH they are the best headphones you can get for under a tenner in my honest opinion.

Sounds good for their price and thats the same that happens to me

so if your on a really tight budget and want a decent pair of earbuds these are good.

These are what I have now, so awesome. The cables to them are made by Monster and they are so comfortable and sound like nothing I've ever heard before. They are super expensive though.



I have these too and used them before I got the Beats by Dre. They aren't bad for $50 or so but no where near what the other ones are.

I haven't actually tried that, but everything I've heard with them or used them for is always awesome so I can't imagine it being otherwise. They aren't just for rap music either, it does make rap hit so hard though in an awesome way, like having a car system surrounding your head haha. I listen to a lot of softer stuff and a ton of hardcore bands too and it all sounds great.

I've tried Gummies, Apple (came with my iPod, I didn't buy them individually), and a bunch of crappy generic ones. Apple's are by far the most comfortable in-ear headphones I've ever used, so I don't know why exactly they're on the "Avoid List". If it's because they break easily, that sucks, because I like them the most. I usually take good care of my stuff, though. I hope mine last.


I prefer around-ear headphones, though. Much more sturdy, comfortable, and they don't make your ears hurt if you wear them all day. Any recommended around-ear headphones for under $20?


They're on the avoid list because they ALWAYS break within a few months, and they're $30 for a replacement. When they come with your iPod, they're not bad.

Got my Sennheiser HD-555 a few years back. Not using it as much now, though... The headphone is very good and all but it still cannot beat a full-range surround speaker set.

of course, that would be pretty difficult for any headphone to do. But I love my HD555's.

Sennies Px 100
Koss Portapro and KSC75

They tend to go at pretty cheap prices but I can't comment on the quality of them as I've never tried them. Try them out first to see whether you like them. Honestly, I say save up and buy a better one.

A HD 555 can't but a HD 800 with a proper source and amp could. A stereo system costs too much on a full time bum wage.

At home I use Beyer Dynamic DT-321's, they only cost me 30 and they a cross between Studio and home use. For the price they sound amazing.

But they're $1,400!

and a good amp is upwards 100.

The most expensive headphone system would probably go for about $3000 whereas an excellent stereo system could go to $10k-$20k. The quality blurs and becomes subjective once you get into the thousands so therefore, headphones are better and a cheaper alternative.

Now let's see what Deliriumbassist has to say about that.

^You can get an damn good stereo system (Roksan K2 series) for about 2100. The most expensive headphone system I can think of at the moment involves a $5k heaphone amplifier (Woo Audio) and $2000 pair of headphones., btw. So more than double your estimate

I'll agree that quality becomes subjective once you reach a pricepoint, but the vast majority of headphones are not going to outperform full range speakers. I find headphones limiting, hence why I'll go for a damn good stereo system over an excellent headphone system.

In personal opinion, I cannot stand headphones for surround, and don't use them for house listening. For both scenarios, I prefer full range speakers. I enjoy having that soundscape being around the room.

Finally, TS PLEASE take Bose off the recommended list. Bose is a "Starbucks" brand if anything- they're expensive and lots of people use them, so they must be good right? Nope.

EDIT: I will be getting my hands on the new Bowers and Wilkins headphones soon, so I may throw a review of them up. The specs from the rep are tasty.

An odd question, but do you guys have any tips for keeping headphones in your ears during sleep? I am using in ear headphones (the ones that actually go in your ear, not like the default iPod ones), and want to use the alarm on my iPod to wake me up.

for my in-ears, i use the shure se 115s:



probably the best in-ears ive used, great clarity, defined bass, and fairly cheap too for what you get ($100)

my over-ears are these:


i tried a ton of headphones before settling with these; the Dr Dre Beats Studios, Senn 205's, Shure 260(?), etc. Comfort-wise, they are really comfortable, second to the Beats. And sound-wise, theyre pretty close to the Beats without paying an arm and leg

I can't recommend Sennheiser's HD280 Pros enough. Especially for the price. I've had them for a year now, fantastic headphones.
