Headphones I have a pair of Sennheiser's and Dre Beats I also have some Beats in ear headphones that I use while running and at school but the quality of them really doesn't compare. The Sennheisers have full base with a sub so the sound quality if incredible and even rivals my 7.1 system.

Are you saying the Beats aren't good? I was considering getting some in-ear ones.

I don't know about the earbuds, but Beats headphones are [cabbage]. The audio has a really "murky" sound to it, it just doesn't seem precise at all. IMO the only reason they sell so well is the marketing. You can get way better headphones for the same price, and even a lot less.

Beats are a lot like Bose. You pay for the brand name, not the quality. At all costs, avoid anything Beats, Bose, or Skullcandy if you don't want to waste your money.

I will never buy a pair of earbuds again.

Thanks to Ruerin's suggestion I had my Mother buy these bad boys for my birthday last year:



If you are at all serious about listening to music, a pair of hi-fi headphones are a must!

Dag. I'd love a pair of those, but I don't have $250 to spend on headphones. :(

They're $90 on Amazon and you won't regret a single penny :P

I'm a cheap person so I've got a pair of Ink'd skullcandy earbuds for school/travel listening and a pair of Lowriders for mostly home use, although I use them for gaming on occasion. Decent stuff considering they cost less than $50 together.

Headphones. Really hate earbuds.

Closed back headphones when I'm out and about, Open back when I want to listen to music at home.

How can anyone use apple earbuds? They're uncomfortable, have terribad quality, don't cancel any noise, let others easily hear (and be annoyed by) your music.

Gaming or movies (PS3 Netflix)

These are like 90$ I think. Turtle Beach PX21s. Great sound quality and good build quality. Very comfortable. Adjustable bass, on/off mic, game sound, chat sound (independent of game sound, good for muting noobs on COD), and a sound expander. Highly recommend if you do a lot of gaming or just in general (works off USB power though).


On the go or listening to something on laptop

Klipsch S4 noise canceling in ear earbuds. They fit well, stay well, and have great sound quality. Put these on after listening to crappy apple earbuds and you will have an eargasm or your money back :thumbup: Something like 80$, and damn well worth it.

Headphones all the way. Does anyone know of a pair that's no more than like $100 that I could get that are noise-cancelling and very good quality? And by "Noise Cancelling", I mean so that I can hear the music over my drumset.

This is the pair I use now:

Oh, an option for "Other" might be those who use speakers most often to listen to music?

I use earbuds, but only because I don't own a pair of headphones. I don't really care what I use, but I prefer to use my Full Metal Jackets (Skull Candy - Don't eat me I got them for free). I might pick up a pair of headphones though. Any recommendations?

My relaxation method involves a bottle of lotion, beautiful women, and partial nudity. Yes I get massages.

I prefer headphones. They don't fall out, you don't have to push them in, if the wire gets caught a tiny bit then it won't pop out. Only downside is that they're a bit bulky and my ears either start to hurt or get sweaty.

But I use in-ear earbuds because I need to hear road sounds when riding my bike <_<

That depends on how much you are willing to spend.

Earbuds when I'm exercising (unless I'm in my little home gym, I'll use my Logitech Speakers). Other times I'll use my Sony headphones. Best buy I ever did, and can really recommend these. Only cost me €35, quality is amazing for that price (at least when compared to my €50 WESC's I had before) and they have a good 'heavy' bass, which I love. It's the MDR-V150 if anyone would be interested. When I'm behind my desk, my König 2.2 speakers do the job. As you can tell, I really need bass :)

I think I'm the third or fourth person to own those Sony headphones. And I thought they were going to be trash quality for the price. :mrgreen:

About $70-120 AUD.

I'd really go for the Sony Headphones I mentioned a few posts ago.
They're like $46 AUD, converted from €.

The problem with headphones is that you either have to spend a ridiculous amount of money (200€+) for awesome quality, or you buy a pair that is quite cheap (~50€), but with lesser quality. It's not really worth it to spend anything inbetween.

These are what I own and they blow anything out of the water in that price range. They're around $90 USD on Amazon and from what I can see here they're around $80 USD. If you're going to buy headphones over $50, DO NOT go cheap on them or it will be a complete waste. Spend the extra cash for some nice hi-fi's. You won't regret it.
