I really need some new earbuds because the cord on my old ones are going bad. My last two pairs have been Skull Candy Ink'd and I really like the fit and sound but each only lasted for about 4 months so I want something that's a little more durable. Suggestions for under $50 please? Anyone know if the Skull Candy Smokin' buds are any good?

There's a reason I asked specifically for earbuds. I have a decent pair of Sony cans but I'm not exactly going to walk around school or go snowboarding with them.

theres absolutely no point to listening to music with earbuds unless you are completely tone deaf.

I did give you beneficial information, here I'll repeat it: Don't ever waste money on earbuds, for anything, ever.

I walk around and do stuff with headphones all the time.

ok then, but seriously, you aren't going to get suggestions for good earbuds, because they simply don't exist.

I don't get the problem with earbud headphones. I heart the noise cancelling ones. They don't fall off, and you can run around.

they have almost no bass response, they sound overly tinny and they are all really low quality, these problems are very glaring and obvious.

Granted there's shit tons of better quality earphones out there, but I listen to my music in school a lot and when I'm biking. I'm not gonna have huge headphones on my head while doing so.

why not? I know a lot of people (including myself) that do that. even the smaller compact headphones are miles better than earbuds.

I fail to see the point of listening to music that sounds like absolute ass due to bad equipment.

Kid_Thorazine, you realize this is the internet? You seriously need to get a life. Your whole recurring "trend" logic is incredibly stupid. You're following a trend for using the internet, playing guitar, listening to the music you like, wearing the clothes you wear. We are creatures of fads and trends, so get the **** over it and live your life.


I'm not sure how good they are comparatively (to other buds like skullcandy), but I got bose earbuds for free, and they kick the shit out of my iPod headphones.

EDIT: ^^^Look, you're following a trend with the big headphones. But seriously, just get the **** out of this thread before you make yourself out to be more of a jerk.

It doesn't really sound as bad as you make it out to be. Trust me, I'm not tone def either. I will never get an MG or Spyder. That should prove my point just a tad bit.

WTF are you talking about, I only mentioned trends once, and that was those skullcandy things, and only because even with earbuds you can get better ones cheaper.

my other argument is based around the fact that earbuds suck due to their terrible sound quality.

I've used earbuds several times, very well made ones, and yes it is that bad.

You're gonna have to spend more than 50 bucks for really good ones. I've had my Etymotic Research ER-6's for about 6 months, best earphones ever for the price. And to people saying headphones are better, well maybe, but at least we don't look like ****ing douchebags when we listen to our music.

I use the skull candy ones that come in like, the jamacan colors, I can't remember the model but they're the only ones I saw in those colors and yeah. And, you can get good bass out of them if you're using a good quality cd/mp3 player that either has bass boost or an eq. also it's helpful to use the bigger silicone things so they're held in your ear tighter, that makes the bass stronger also

Neat. You've made your mark about your position on earbuds... and CLEARLY the TS has a totally new point of view about it. Mission accomplished, now go flex your muscles in front of a mirror and boost that self esteem a bit more.

Well the budget can be stretched, I'm just cheap . I was actually looking at these http://www.futuresonics.com/atrio/ earlier but I really don't want to spend that much.

I think I clearly pointed out that your help isn't the help I was looking for hence why I told you to **** off, then you said something like "Okay but (bitch moan complain)" which makes me wonder why you're still here.

if you kids cant play nice, im not letting you play at all.


if you dont have a useful answer, dont give one.

he wanted ear buds. there is no point in coming into the thread to tell him they suck. its what he wants, so leave him alone. he didnt ask for opinions on whether or not to get them, he just wanted suggestions for what kind to get.
