Hey, Pit!!!

So, I need some help on which headphones to get.

And considering that guitar is music, then you guys must listen to music and might have some knowledge with headphones. They need to have the best sound quality/comfort possible for $30 or less. I would need them to be in-ear headphones as well. It would also be helpful if they came in red

So what do you guys think? If you guys know of anything, please send me a link! Thanks!

PS i did use the search bar, but i searched headphones and nothing revelant came up.

All help is appreciated!

EDIT: with my problem resolved, and many other people here with questions/problems involving headphones, I have changed this to the ONLY headphones thread. Please ask any questions you have about headphones here, and every one else, please try to answer them!

truthfully if you are going to get headphones you really really need to get much higher end ones that will reduce outside noise from getting in and let you hear the full spectrum of sound. I use the sony 70mdr but the technic 1000's are great as well, but they are well over $30. Then again im a bit of a sound nut so don't mind me

meh, a lot of people won't reay notice the difference between $30 headphones and $100 heaphones, I have a pair of each, the $30 are for listening to music on the bus and whatnot and te $100 are for studio work and listening to music at home sometimes, I've asked people to try both and most people can't tell the difference.

Dunno about your question EARNEST, it probably has something to do with your headphones not being able to adequately output the lows. How much were they? You might want to go for higher quality if they're not that great. As for TS, I can't really help you cause I prefer over-ear headphones. But if you're looking for something cheap, I guess the standard iPod/iPhone headphones are good for the price. They get a decent spectrum of sound while being in-ear headphones. But +1 to everyone who said go more expensive.

I got these too just for €19 and they're pretty damn good...
Not as good as my Sennheiser headphones though, but those cost me €60.

I bought mine for 145 euros (Thomann's price and in USA they are around 100-150USD)...so i think more-or-less they should be ok...but probably it is true, that headphones cant output the lows :-/ tho it is really weird, the frequency response is 15Hz-28kHz and impedance is around 60-70 Ohms

I have a problem with whichever headphones I get, I always break one ear bud, the sound will still play through the other but one will always be drastically quieter. Does anybody know why this is? I don't handle the headphones roughly, I always wrap them around my ipod but I keep the chord slightly slack so I don't stress them, if they're not like that then they're in my ears.

I got Skullcandy Ink'd for $17. They are nice and cheap.
There is a higher priced pair that looks kind of cooler, but the frequency range is greatly reduced, so check that out before you buy.
Mine are 20Hz-20Khz

what about the input of the headphones? when you wrap it, is it tight? if so, it is bending the wires and tearing them, ruining one ear bud. I've broken many a good pair of headphones that way

No, I keep the whole cable slightly slack.
