Re: Best bang for buck headphones?

Sorry for bringing up my old thread, but I thought it would be ok since it's my thread. What's y'all detailed opinion on Grado's vs. Beats by Dre vs. Bose?

Re: Best bang for buck headphones?

I've used SkullCandy Titans for the past 3 years and they do the job for me. The connections on either end of the cord is what normally goes bad on me after 6 months to a year of hard abuse. My current pair is 8 months old and starting to wear but I bring them nearly everywhere in my pocket, I even sleep with them in most nights.

In the sound department they lack in the vocals and aren't the most detailed for highs and any review will tell you they are very very bass heavy. But for $50 I think they are a solid buy compared to the small variety I've tried.

It's all about the price range but you cant really go wrong. unless you buy beats haha.
And like car audio there's a lot of overpriced garbage out there.
Just because it's $200 doesn't mean it's good.

my 2 cents: depends on what your are using them for will depend on what is comfortable for you. over the ear, earbuds, on ear...

i use the sony MDREX10LP/BLK earbuds at the moment for day use sitting behind a computer. they are my sound good with inline volume, co-worker canceling & other noises, and inexpensive to replace if you catch a cord. also has a good range of sound and bass.

down side is that the wires are a bit troublesome as they will tangle easy and if not careful the wire will take a funny shape (wrapping them around something like your MP3 player).
Newegg.ca - MEElectronics - M6 Stylish Sound-Isolating Sports Premium Headphones - 2 Pack

Those are the exact ones I have. My GF uses the pink pair

I got the pair for $20ish, I think you can find a single set for under $20. I just love the tips they come with. There are 5 different styles/sizes. The biggest tri-flanged ones worked the best for me. I can almost totally block out the outside noise. (With no music playing I can hear my heartbeat). The biggest down side is also it's biggest upside. The wire that wraps around your ear. It's really hard to figure out. But once you do get used to it, it's amazing. Unlike most canal earphones, the cords vibration is damped. This eliminates "microphonics". Ie sound being transmitted through the cable itself. It's also great for running, they won't fall out.

The cable isn't too tangle prone either . Man I love these things.
Here's a review.

Honestly as far as bang for the buck, these are hard to beat.

I loved my Psi earbuds. So sad mines broke and they stopped making the But AudioQue earbids sound great, I heard Shok Inds makes better ones, I'm gonna try those next.
