I'm looking for new in-ear headphones, for not more than $100 US, and they should have different ear fittings because i have trouble keeping ipod style earphones in. I, however dont know anything about headphones

If anyone could give me some advice, it would be great thanks.

Get some Gummys (made by JVC) if you can find them, I have some that cost me 8GBP and I swear by them

Don't be afraid to try the cheaper ones. I use some from Sony and they rock! I have some from Sennheiser that cost twice as much as the Sonys but don't sound any better.

The Skull Candies I use sound nice.

Maybe it's just me, but really nice bass, really nice quality. Blocks out sound really well, too.

Do NOT listen to him. I got some, they get extremely dirty extremely quickly. The fittings wear out really quickly and cut the inside of your ear to shit, and they are the best way to get an ear infection. I was always careful about putting things in my ears, and didn't see anything wrong with them, but I got an infection a few months ago from them, and I've lost alot of the hearing in my left ear from it. And it's not only me that thinks these caused it, I asked and showed them to my doctor, and he says it's likely that where I got it from.

Plus they sound awful. The bass is WAY to powerful, and they are really staticy.

I would recommend a good pair of Sony headphones, you can get a good pair for about £45

Sennheiser Precision CX-300 IIs

The II bit is important. The originals were crap. The IIs are better in-ears than any other at the price range and lower. Sony are only good for Blu-Ray players and the less said about JVC and Skull candy the better.


+1, but I prefer the CX-400 IIs, a little more pricey though.

And TS, please don't get gumy earphones, the sound is terrible.

Sony is the way to go, in my opinion. I have the Compact Fit earbuds, and they have amazing sound quality and bass, and for only 17-27$.
I'm that dude with the fro.

Had them for several months. Sound amazing, everything you would want, totally clear, REALLY durable, and I can be pretty rough with them.

JVC marshmallows are good for the price, but don't expect anything amazing about them.

This.

20 bucks at your nearest Wal-Mart, and I'd say they're pretty good.

Pretty good too but I've gone through several pairs even when treated well.

I agree with this. They're cheap as hell and sound pretty good. I've never heard anyone really complain about them (outside of the blue writing up there ^...which seems doubtful.)

If you have a bit more money then I'd say the Sennheiser Precision CX-300 II which have been mentioned are a very good set of earphones.

These are the best headphones I've ever used. I'd take these in a heartbeat over the iPod pair.

I've had one pair, and I've had them for a year at least. They've been squashed, dunked in coffee, air dried, and used again.

The premium headphones I got with my Zune were pretty good. Only drawbacks really are that they're fabric covered, and you get static when you brush against other fabrics or rough materials. And that the fabric covering after being folded (to fit in my pocket) ripped. I just taped it up, but its ok.

They can withstand stuff like that I guess really good, but the part right above the jack always starts getting worse and worse. I guess its just cause I kept them in my pocket with my ipod.

i think im going to go with sennheiser cx 300 II or cx 400 IIs. gummys don't look like they will stay in my ears too well.

What is the difference between the SH CX-300 IIs and CX-400 IIs?

The 300s have a bit more detail to them. The 400s I find a little overbassy.

I had one pair last a year and another pair last about three months, with both being used every day...

They recently tweaked the Marshmallows actually, and I'm really diggin' the new ones. Also TS, if the cable length means anything to you, the new Marshmallows have a relatively long cable (for a pair of earphones). I always thought the Gummies had too short of a cable (tugged a bit on my ears when I moved around with my Zune in my pocket).

They sell stock car audio. "Premium" =/= a ten inch sub in the trunk. Bose overrates everything.

I would get a set of Wicked Little Buds. They come with 3 different fittings, they're noise cancelling, and they cost anywhere from $10-$40 depending on which ones you get. I have a set now and they are AMAZING!!!

I got skullcandy smokeys or something, its like 30 bucks and pretty good bass and stuff. I've heard a lot of mixed things about skullcandys but I figure they're popular for a reason.

Anyone have any good recommendations for headphones in the shape of gummies or iPod headphones that are quality, because I can never get the ones shaped like the sennheisers recommended earlier to fit.

The CX300 II's are great, but if you have a bit more money I would go for the CX550's. They are less bassy, and more balanced.
Trust in me and fall aswell.
