I just got a new ipod classic (loooove!), but I hate apple's earbuds.
I have 80 bucks to spend. What should I get?
Something easy like skullcandy, something different like Sennheiser, or something else?
#2
More specific? Do you want earbuds? If not, open or closed? $80 a definite budget or can you save up a bit first?

Stay away from Skullcandy, Bose, low-end Sennheiser and Monster Beats.
In that price range, I say go with Sony, Shure, Grado, and Denon.

Listen to him, TS.
There's a reason he'll kill you.
We'll all kill you.
And defecate on your lifeless corpse for your error.

At least I will.
There's a good chance that what I've written above is useless and if you take any of the advice it's your own fault.

Overpriced for crappy sound quality and look terrible.

Hahaha... Noted. I'd rather not be stabbed on the street just for the earphones I wear.
I'm looking for some in-ears. I looked up grado - Holy expensive!

I hear Monster Beats break easily. Anyone hear this too?

I bought a pair of Phillips ear buds for like $10 at Target, and while they're probably not the best ones you can possibly get, they sound fine & fit nice & comfy in my ears. Fuck yr fancy Skullcandy shit & spend the extra $70 on booze or takin' nice girls out on dates.

I do agree they look pretty ugly. I bought mine off a friend for $15, they're Skullcandy Lowrider's I think. I'm sure there are much better headphones out there, but they don't sound incredibly shitty. Plus I find a lot of headphones (I'm not talking about earbuds here) tend to boost the bass a lot, and mine don't do that quite as much. It's still clear in the mix, but it's not all I'm hearing
#20
Sennheiser earphones are my personal favourite, I haven't found a pair with better sound quality than my CX500s.

For $15 you can't really complain, but I would never pay full price for a pair.

Monster are awful. Save for the Grados.

And if you do buy Skullcandy, I won't kill you.

I will turn you into a Human Centipede. With yourself.

In all seriousness, you won't go far wrong with Grado. Yes they cost a bit, but the build quality is awesome. I've never had a pair back.

If you positively must have earbudx; Senny CX500s. Just make sure they aren't fake.

Holy shit, I just checked how much they would be new. $45 I like mine, but that is definitely way overprived.

This.

I was in a similar situation last year and I bought a pair of Alessandro headphones (bascially Grado headphones modified to sound more neutral than the aggressive Grados). I was hesitant about spending the money (the Alessandro's cost $100), but it was the right decision.

I used to have Sennheiser headphones as well and they were great.

obviously they're up to some kind of standard because people keep buying them


Having owned a pair of SC headphones in my life, i can tell you the only thing theyre good for is bass, and some noise reduction

the sound quality and physical build quality suck ass, as does pretty much everything else about them.

but if youre cheap, need some noise reduction and all you care about is bass, by all means.
