What earphones do you use?


Most of us spend several hours a week commuting to work. Those that take public transportation likely listen to music, watch videos (or sleep)

I'm getting bored of my shure earbuds and are looking to upgrade. What is everyone using with your smart phones, and mp3 players?

Just some background on the buds i have.
Shure E5C
Shure E4
Etymotic HF5
Sony MDR-EX70LP 20th Anniversary fontopia earbuds
Sony MDR-ES310LP (currently using)

Was considering some dual or triple driver earbuds but there arent' any that have really stood out atm.

Some kind of skullcandy brand earbuds my boyfriend got me. Not sure which ones exactly but I can tell you that they sound good, fit comfortably and are fairly indestructable despite getting tossed around in my purse.

Skullcandy ink'd 2 are pretty good and rather cheap. They have great customer service too. If you happen to break them or something, you get 50% for a replacement if it was your fault, and if it was their fault, you get a free replacement. My only complaint is that the rubber part falls off easy. I have gone through 4 already, but it only costs $5 for 6.

Sony XBA3 for travel
Sennheiser HD650 for home

You should look into the Klipsch S4i's for commutes, they should be around 100 bucks.

These are excellent headphones. My brother has them and the sound quality is amazing. Don't know if i would really consider them suitable for walking around with, but it all depends on your style i guess.

Skullcandy headphones sound good but when a ear bud goes out three months after purchase the second time then yea.

i recently had to downgrade to Beats headphones... bestbuy doesnt carry my old ones anymore... pretty nice quality.. not the best but miles ahead skullcandy and apple in sound quality. plus for $20 you get endless replacements. I've been using the same insurance policy to get $150 headphones for 5 years now. They just ask you to renew the policy for $20 every time you exchange them.

Ya, beats are way overpriced and overrated if you ask me. I had a younger brother of a friend come over with his beats all proud and 30secs of listening to them, I found them muddy as hell. He's like, nooo, they're beats, they're the best. I type up the model # and the word review on google, first 2 reviews that come up, say muddy. lol.
