Default Which Earbuds Do I Choose?

This question has been asked before I'm sure, sorry, but I'm in kind of a rush.
I have about a $40 limit, and I've been considering Sennheisers.
But I don't know for sure. I want ones with great quality and durability.
What do you think, fellow Banters?

I have a pair of Sennheiser CX 300B MK II earbuds for the gym and they do the job just fine. They also fall under your price range on Amazon.

Yes, those are the exact same ones I was viewing on Amazon. How's the quality compared to other brands, i.e Sony, Skullcandy, etc.? I heard its amazing.

Can't rightly say as I've never owned a pair of earbuds from either of those manufacturers, but I think it's safe to say that they'll be superior to skullcandy at the very least.

Like I said, I use mine exclusively at the gym, otherwise it's my over-the-ear headphones from Numark. I'd say that for the price they're one of the better ones you can get but I can't imagine they'd be comfortable after say 2+ hours of continuous usage.

Hmm. 2 hours, you say? Well, got any other good ideas?

For sound quality & at your price point, I would go with Klipsch S4i Ear Buds. Best buds I've heard under $150, hands down. It's the quality & durability of the hardware itself that I'm a bit leery about. The buds are well constructed but the wires are thin & feel weak. I've owned a pair for 2 years and I'm still amazed at the sound quality and, knock on wood, they've held up quite well but I wouldn't recommend them for exercising or any type of strenuous activity. Plane rides, casual listening while walking ... buy them ... running the marathon ... pass.

Hope this helps.

Yeah earbuds are pretty expensive, but you can get on-ear headphones for like $12.

I bought these wicked cheap JVC headphones on amazon and it only cost me like $20 including shipping, and they sound fantastic!
