    Hey I have been looking at getting some good in-ear headphones for my phone and am wondering if anyone has any suggestions. I am looking at spending around $50 so nothing to expensive please. I was looking at the ZAGG smartbuds so if anyone has any feedback on these please tell me.

    Thanks

  2. I know this is a tad over your budget, but another user just bought these by Ultimate Ears. It adds the microphone and some controls, so maybe that justifies the slight bump in your budget. I'm likely to follow suit. I believe they were about $80 on Amazon.

    Anything by Sennheiser. I'm an audio engineer, and use their products at work all the time. You dont have to spend a lot of money, they have a few pairs for around 60-100 bucks that have great sound. Once you try them you will never go back to cheap-o headphones.

    I 2nd the Sennheiser. I purchased sonys and
    Exchanged them for the CX300II and they are as good as my Bose earbuds, I use these a lot more than then the Bose because they are noise cancelling and I can't lose the rubber pieces like my Bose. I purchased mine at best buy. If you don't like them you can return them. I was really impressed with the Sennheiser. I wasn't looking for anything this high quality just wanted something that was noise cancelling and fit in my ear tighter then my Bose. The only thing I don't really like is the cord is 2 different lengths. The left side is about 8in shorter than the right side. I think its so you can put them behind your neck, but I don't like it. Definitely recommend they were only $59.99

    Make sure the headphones that you purchase are the 3 ring/band headphone jacks, as a lot of people have issues with the headphone jack when trying to use 2 ring/band plugs.

    Like this, the white lines are the rings/bands:

    Okay forgot to mention this in OP but im looking for something that has a built in mic and some controls which is why I'm leaning towards the Zaggs. I read some reviews on them and everyone says they have high sound quality and are very comfortable. Right now Zagg has them for 37% off which is $50 plus if you enter their iPad give away they give you a coupon code for up to 50% off but I only got one for 30%.

    Do all the controls work? The only pair I've been able to find were the HTC's?

    those buds are dope, I have the black pair. But they don't fit all the way down in my evo?? It kinda shorts out :eek: ..Are you using them with yours?

    It may just be my buds since I had them for a while, Ima test them on another device and see :thinking:


    EDIT: it was my buds (-_- )
