I have some cheap purple JVC earbuds for when I use my ipod and just got a pair of Shure SRH240s for Christmas.

Piss Me Off 01-09-2010 12:35 PM

Sennheiser PXC 150's. The sound cancelling device may well be what kills me in the end, i am fairly oblivious to everything with it on!

Sennheiser HD650 Audiophile Open Dynamic Stereo Headphone :love:

Found a pretty great deal on them about a year ago. Love them more than words can explain.



I also use a Bose pair when I'm out.

These ones:

TheCunningStunt 01-09-2010 01:47 PM

JVC ones, I used to use iPod ones.

They kept breaking, I've had about 4 of the bastards.

I decided enough was enough and went for JVC ones, they're good.

LoathsomePete 01-09-2010 01:48 PM

While I'm at my desktop I use my Skullcandy Hesh and when I'm out a pair of Bose earbuds I got for Christmas that are quite easily the best earbuds I've ever had in my life.

Did you know that if your apple headphones break you can return them and get a pear for free? Found it out about a year ago.

And to the person that said they use Bose buds, i use those for when i run and stuff, i think were talking about the same ones, the buds go like deep in your ear right? And they have a clip

Sansa Stark 01-09-2010 02:40 PM

I need some new ones, I break nearly every pair I own, I think I listen to music too loudly

Zer0 01-09-2010 02:43 PM

I mostly use Sennheiser. At the moment i use:

Sennheiser HD 201

And Sennheiser CX300

Those are the Bose that I'm using right now, easily the best ear buds I've ever had in my life.

i am a die hard sennheiser user. i randomly picked up a cheap pair of eh150s before i understood the beauty of overear headphones and they were so good for their price that i swore to stick to sennheiser forever. i used them...they broke and now i got the hd201 as well. great great stuff i couldn't be happier...i know people that think these are actually better than bose overear and those things are so much more expensive.

once i have some money i plan on upgrading to a pair from their audiophile line.

I think that's the kind my dad uses.... he really doesn't listen to them enough... he should give them to me:D

I've actually been wanting a pair of decent headphones for a while. I have some skullcandy earbuds but nothing for good listening at home.

duga 01-09-2010 03:31 PM

i use my overears even when out in public...i look like a weirdo with giant phones on my ears and i can't hear a damn thing that is going on around me...but i can't help it i need good quality anywhere i go.

I actually used to do this as well. People would get frustrated trying to get my attention, was sorta funny...so I'd have to take them off and put them around my neck so I could converse. Eventually it evolved into my just wearing them all the time, even if I wasn't listening...I'd just have them around my neck. I assumed I looked really cool, but who knows. :hphones:
I haven't done that since that pair broke and I got the Sennheisers though, I just don't wanna risk it. The Bose in-ears are really nice, and being able to hear what's going on around you has it benefits sometimes too I suppose.

I got a pair of HD 201s for €24.99 and they are incredible value for money. They give a good rich, clear sound.

RobotInDisguise 01-09-2010 03:59 PM

I have some cheap ass JVC's from HMV, I love them.

neonurotic 01-09-2010 04:03 PM

I use the StudioBeats by Dre. I've had them for a couple of months. They aren't as great as my Bose.

FaSho 01-09-2010 05:02 PM

After going through about 1o pairs of headphones in 2009(4 of them being iPod ones and one SkullCandy) I've finally found a pair that I've been okay with. Blue JVCs. They're amazing,and don't seem likely to break either.

jackhammer 01-09-2010 05:24 PM

A more appropriate forum although there is a similar thread around the place. I use the same Sennheisers HD 201 as Zero1986 and although a little bassy and quiet, they have a really warm sound to them that is perfect for when the missus is watching endless soaps and you want to ignore them.

duga 01-09-2010 07:45 PM

scratch that...this thread inspired me to upgrade. in 2-5 business days i will be the proud owner of some hd 280 pros. i'm pretty excited.

Seltzer 01-10-2010 12:21 AM

My flatmates bought me these beauties for my bday. The fact that the cord is so long gives me some incentive to clean my room since I can circumnavigate it while listening to music and still be plugged in at the end of it. And I like that the cord isn't hard wired to the cans but rather, plugs into them... if it weren't for that, I would have botched them long ago after trampling on a tangled cord.


OceanAndSilence 01-10-2010 06:04 AM

sony mdr-xd100's

not too shabby, a little lacking in bass though; i'm looking for a different pair.

VEGANGELICA 01-10-2010 10:20 AM

I was given Direct Sound EX-29 Extreme Isolation noise reduction headphones for a holiday gift Direct Sound EX-29 Extreme Isolation Headphones – Noise reduction headphones « QuietHeadphones.com

I like the EX-29s because the ear pads are big enough to cover my ears without crushing them, unlike my previous despised Vic Firth sound reduction headphones.

Used to have those and they randomly broke. Sound quality was insane but only lasted around 6 months.

Gaspanic 01-23-2010 02:10 AM

I've just bought myself a pair of Koss Portapro's, I know I know, they're Koss but for all their shortcomings and general shoddyness, the Portapro's are excellent value for money.

That and they look cool.

I got 2 pairs of headphones I use mostly to listen to music while surfing the web.

I mostly use these.... Basic Triport Headphones
https://www.belmonttv.com/mm5/graphi...headphones.jpg

When I can remember to charge the battery.... I use Quiet Comfort 3s
http://tech2.in.com/media/images/200...6846_main2.jpg

For MP3 Players I use Bose Earbuds

My bad I just randomly grab images off the web and didnt resize.

s_k 11-23-2010 08:17 PM

Beyerdynamic DT-990 is just awesome.
I have a set of Philips SHP2000 (10 euro's) which are incredible value for money. I used to use these with my laptop and on the road, until I found a Sennheiser HD435 Manhattan that's a bit better. I've never been a fan of sennheiser. They sound pushy, hollow and bassy to me, but this one is very relaxed and rather neutral actually. Can't beat the DT-990 in any way though.

Alfred 11-23-2010 08:23 PM

Nothing fancy, Sony MDR-V150's
http://www.digitgeek.com/wp-content/...01/sonymdr.jpg

s_k 11-23-2010 08:31 PM

These sony's actually don't sound all that bad :).

bannister 11-23-2010 09:40 PM

Sony 'fashion' earbuds that were on sale for $5 at Kmart.

I jam econo. :| I have to get a new pair every three months anyways, I consistently break them.

Alfred 11-23-2010 09:45 PM

lol, I've had the same pair of dollar store earbuds that I use for my MP3 player for at least 6 months, they still do the trick

econo is the way to go

Sennheiser eh 150's. They're a pretty good mid-range product as far as the quality to price ratio goes. They provide decent bass, they're sturdy, and comfortable. No complaints so far.

I need to know which dollar store you go to. because i want to live there.

I listen to music on headphones almost always because you can hear sounds you wouldn't get to hear from a pair of speakers. I have had many pairs of headphones from Sony studio monitor style, to Aiwa ear buds, but my latest pair of Stanton DJ pro60's are easily the best sounding pair I have ever heard! Great frequency response and I love that Stanton only deals with audio, so the quality is much better.

Batty 12-01-2010 11:52 PM

Some old school sennies HD414, the ones with the bright yellow pads

Thinking of putting them on my Christmas List.

Sorry man, that's just not true ;).
But I must admit an affordable Headphone can sound really good compared to affordable speakers.
But there's no way my headphone beats any of my two 'serious' sets of speakers.
(and I haven't got an affordable headphone. I mean, it cost me $1,50 at a thrift store, but that was just crazy luck ;)).

Nah, DJ audio isn't home audio.
Their phono cartridges are actually pretty awful (especially the Celebrated Stanton 500, brrrr!)

Exact same thing happened to me. They were great while they lasted, just didn't last very long. I know someone else who owned a pair and they had the same experience.

These are what I use most the time. They technically aren't mine, just sort of on permanent loan to me.
