I got myself a pair of theses Philips SHE5920 In Ear-buds for Christmas. I have had them before and love them. Great sound and great at blocking out outside noises.

I have so many different types of headphones I have two different pairs of Sony, one from a couple years ago that I love because it has a 6ft cord on it (MDR V150)

I have some skull candy and like them

I used to be completely opposed to Beats by Dre because everywhere I went to demo them had music that wasn't what they were for. I finally listened to the music I like through both the Solo and Monster Beats and I really liked what I heard. And depending on how Christmas shopping ends, I may be purchasing either. I really do like the simple design of them too.

Sony MDR XB700 headphones from Amazon large but very comfortable with natural bass (can get fantasic sounds on my CowonJ3 with jet settings) and RHA earbuds for when I'm out.

Panasonic earbuds and panasonic closed back for lisening at home. Both are budget models cosing under £20 each, but sound quality is arguable more dependent on having a clear source.

Coming from SkullCandy Titan earbuds, what are the Beats by Dre earbuds like? I don't particularly care for the Dre thing, but Monster hardware has never failed me. I listen to mostly Rock of all kinds, and some composed music. Even if they aren't the best, are they an upgrade to what I've got now?

Yes, they are. Even the knock-offs I posted about are a nice step up as I've had a few SkullCandy headphones.

So you are someone that uses Monster Beats by Dre?

I have only used them instore plugged into you know the demo box with the "ideal" settings. Are they as good when you just plug them straight into a computer or a device without changing any settings? Because I can get my skull candy hesh to sound pretty close, but thats when I plug my computer into my mixer and adjust the eq there, and I have to change it for every song.

I am really thinking about getting monsters but I'm just not sure since they have a hefty price tag

No it's the other way around. I'm someone who uses Skullcandys and wants to try Beats, but only if they are better. I know they aren't the BESTbut out of the two, which are better.

Well I just got the skullcandy skull crushers for a present. They have their own mini amplifier for the subs in the head phones, but its a cheap sounding bass. There are a couple places you can try out beats, one is Target.. a few of them have Beats headphone areas to listen to the music with them. The other I know of is Best Buy, and there you can compare them to other brands like skullcandy, or even Senheiser and other brands like that

Hey, another COWON user! Howdy! I have the X5 with the latest factory software. (There's a FOSS system software available, but I've been pretty happy with the stock setup.)

I used to have circa 1990 Sony headphones that just covered the ear. Very light weight, great sound, just not much bass. I broke mine ages ago, and never found a suitable replacement in that form factor. Sony comes out with the occasional gem. I had a Sony portable CD player (again circa 1990) that was no bigger than 2 CD "gem boxes", sounded great, and even had an optional IR remote for use with a stereo system. Shame I sold it.

I'm hanging onto my HD-based COWON, even after I replace it. How do you like the J3? Enough power?

So I got these for Christmas, and I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a decent pair under £50. The bass is pretty punchy without clipping too much, and the mids are wonderful.

The fit takes a bit of time as they seem to be a bit of a funny shape for my ears, but I've got them set up well now and they won't fall out if I'm moving around. Also have to say the braided cable is really nice, they don't tangle as easily but they do give off a bit of noise when rubbed against clothing.

As my avatar to left suggests, I listen to a lot of electronic and IDM music, and they have been fantastic for it so far. It's made a lot of difference to my every day listening (I was using the galaxy S3 earphones before and I think they are pretty awful)

I got a pair of Skullcandy Skull Crushers for Christmas. I would not recommend them to anyone though. They had what I thought was going to be a cool feature.. a "Bass Amplified Subwoofer." You put 1 AA battery in the "amp" and you can turn the power of the amp up and down for more power to the subs in the headphones. While it sounds like a decent idea the bass produced from these "subwoofers" is so cheap and lacks depth. In stores they cost $70 and they are out performed by to pairs of my $20 sony headphones. The only way I was able to get decent sound out of them was by plugging them into my mixer and dropping the low down to -10, and even then they still weren't the greatest.

I tried writing a review on their website but Skullcandy apparently rejects negative reviews, because when I asked why it was rejected (since it met their guide lines) they replied saying they have the right to reject any review for any reason to their discretion. And replied telling them I would not be purchasing from them nor would I be suggesting them to anyone with that being said.
What was my favorite brand has lost me..

Sony V6 monitor headphones.



Not the best in the world (or at least I wouldn't know, as I am not an audiophile), but they block out external sound well, which is invaluable for DJing.

I got a pair of Pugs Gear Electronics at the local Quik Mart. They actually have great sound. I think they were under 20 bucks.

I'm not an audiophile so I am probably missing out but :

Headphones (Do not have, but want) : Sennheiser - But it will be a while because the set I want isn't cheap

Headset - PC - Work - Turtle Beach EarForce Z2 (mostly for Skype)

Headset - PC - Home - Just bought Razer Kraken Pro (My faithful MS Headset is dead, and Razer was having 50% off CES promotion)

Earbuds - Phone/Tablet - Cheapy Amazon/Monoprice (I have both). Work fine for me in those scenarios.

Don't judge me too sharply

I use creative headphone, the cheapest variety. The problem is after a year or so it plays sound only from one ear mostly, sometimes from left ear sometimes from right but not from both.

They sound great for the price! I have been considering trying something slightly more high end, though. Nothing outrageous, I can't see myself dropping $300 on earbuds just to listen to mp3s on my phone. I have a decent home system for real music listening.

Shame - I kinda liked them.

I now have some MEElectronics M6s. I've had them for maybe 6 weeks and - so far - they've been fine. The sound isn't quite up with the Shures I had (cable issues, replaced 4 times before giving up) but, for me, it's at least as good as the RHAs.

They're also pretty comfortable, not as comfortable as the Shures but quite a bit more comfortable than the RHAs.

The M6s also have braided cables, like the RHAs and are over-ear, like the Shures. The model I have includes a mic that works well though the (single) button only appears to be good for ending calls with my N4.

Overall, I'm pretty happy with them.

I have to say, though if it wasn't that the plastic around cable kept coming away near the earphone, the Shures were the best earphones I've owned. And the most expensive. By far.

Just to be clear, you can use the bluetooth dongle that comes with this with ANY headset, right? In other words, you pair your phone to the BT dongle and then you plug any headphones into the universal jack to have your headphones wireless from your mobile phone, laptop, tablet... whatever. Right?

Also, does that button it it act as the button on wired headphones where you can use apps to make it play, pause, answer phone calls, skips songs, yadda?

Yes to all of the above, it takes any standard 3.5mm headphone and turns it into a stereo bluetooth headset, I got it because I have so many decent headphones, it's nicer than having to shop for just a wireless device, it has the mic built-in, and sounds pretty good, you don't need an app, it has dedicated buttons on the side , all of the transport functions work with PowerAmp, it was about $25 as a Newegg shell shocker.

Thanks for the reply. I need to get one of these. Any way to get just the dongle portion or do I have to buy the entire kit with headphones and everything? I will assume the latter.

It comes with a pair of buds that are alright for phone calls, not so much with music, the only thing special about them is a short, about 24" cable so that they don't dangle if you attach it to your shirt. I love it, being able to pick different ear gear for different music and being wireless without limiting your choices to head phones with a built in mic.

Yeah, my PowerBeats are just a little bit too short to plug in and throw into my cargo pocket where I keep my phone. They come with an extension but then that's just WAY too long and it loops down near my shin so it's not an option. I like the idea of this thing as I can clip it in a pocket and have my phone separate. Of course this means quicker battery drain streaming over BT than hard wired but for some this might be worth it.

It's definitely a niche product but I'm quite happy with it, as to the power I haven't seen a terrible hit while streaming, the device itself is about the same width as a stick of gum, as thick as 3 sticks, and about as tall as ⅔ of a stick. Even with it's small size I can usually get 4-6 hours of continuous use before charging, one last thing is that it supports pairing to 2 different devices.

Don't forget the phone, having a Wolfson dac on board instead of a Yamaha helps out quite a bit also.

That does beg the question: What, aside from a fancy-sounding made-up name does Wolfson have going for it? On the pro side of the industry, the company has no standing, and Yamaha is quite well respected.

So is there anything to it, or is it just hype?

Being a player in the home audio market doesn't give you an edge on the mobile side : http://www.anandtech.com/Show/Index/4686?cPage=11&all=False&sort=0&page=13&slug=samsun g-galaxy-s-2-international-review-the-best-redefined

PSA..

Amazon has the Klipsch x10's on sale for $89, normally $350.

At $350 there's better options, but for $89 nothing will touch them. Paired with a set of Comply foam tips the clarity, detail and separation is amazing.

If ear buds are falling out or uncomfortable you're using the wrong tips. Probably just as important as the IEM's themselves.

Nice find, and I totally agree with you concerning the tips. Comply might sound expensive at $5 a pair but if you take care of them a set will last for a few months. $20 a year is pretty inexpensive when you consider what $ you have invested in your iem's.

V-Moda Crossfade LP2, I'm a bass player and we use headphone monitors for live play. These headphones rock. I play a five string bass tuned to a low B, when I an playing through my headphones, I can barely tell the difference between playing over the amp or playing through the headphones. Even on the low B then is no distortion. For music, I listen to everything from Progressive Metal to dubstep and they have given a crystal clear sound no matter what I play through them. I let my friends try them out, and I always have a hard time getting them back because their music sounds so clear, it's like listening to the song again for the first time.
