So I really hate these in-ear skullcandies I've been using. I've used them for a while because they're only $10 so I got a new pair whenever they broke.

I want a pair of around ear headphones, but can only spend about $40-$50. Can you suggest what kind to get? OR what kinds should be avoided?

I really don't know much about headphones, so any help is much appreciated.

Thanks

EDIT: Mainly for use with my iPod.

Skullcandy headphones are really good, and they don't only do in-the-ear ones. They do (afaik) really good high-quality ones for around the ear too. Worth trying them out I reckon.




sexy, huh? ;]

Never. EVER EVER buy skullcandy.
They're absolute ****e.

Go for Sennheissers or something worthwhile.

I sort of 2nd this. My iPod sat in my pocket awkwardly so it was putting pressure on the lead going into my iPod, and it broke and crackled when I jiggled it about at the connector. I just bought a new pair at the store and I put some electric tape around where it broke on the last pair, and it works okay now.


However, this was with a really cheap pair. I'm not sure of the quality on the higher end ones.

Dude, seriously, if you can double your price range, you'll have headphones that will last you for years. I've only had my pair of Sennheiser HD-555s (WHICH I HIGHLY RECOMMEND), since late November, but I've been using them every single day and there's little sign of wear, besides minor nicks and scratches which are barely noticeable. These are ****ing beasts, I highly recommend you look into a pair. I doubted they would be worth it at first, and a friend tried to recommend them to me heavily for months, and I finally cracked and bought a pair, and I have not regretted it since.

^Sorry, but I really don't have $130 to spend, and if I did, I'd probably spend it on some guitar gear anyway.

What about these:

Sennheisers. Even the MX360s sound good if you ask me. Not exactly my HD280s, but they're dependable.

I've got some Audio Technica headphones and they're pretty sweet.
Then there's this band called Slice The Cake...

Bunch of faggots putting random riffs together and calling it "progressive" deathcore.
Stupid name.
Probably picked "for teh lulz"

$130? What are you talking about? They go for $94 on Amazon for me.
