    I got a pair a couple of months ago similar to these but not these. I use them at work. I also have some Creative Labs earbuds I keep in the car for times I'm somewhere and need them.

    I don't have any high quality music on my phone, so I'm just using some cheap Skullcandy earbuds. Along with the Equalizer app, it sounds pretty decent.

    Are you only looking for headphones or can I recommend the earbuds I use? I have ViSang r03's (aka brainwavz M2). They're awesome and a major upgrade from my skullcandy's.

    Go ahead and flame me, but I honestly like the new Apple earbuds. I miss having more noise cancellation with in-ear buds, but these are much more comfortable and have great sound. Wish I could utilize the volume rocker/mic though. But, for $30, not bad.

    Isn't there a app that can let you use the volume rocker?

    Not positive. The only thing I've seen is a hardware fix where it needs to be taken apart. Not something I'm willing to do.
    If you do know of an app, let me know. That'd be great.

    The ones I bought sounds pretty good to me, I'm not real picky. Having some Bose would be really really good to have, but I'm sure Mrs. Saptech wouldn't approve of the cost! :rolleyes:

    Thnx.

    I've got these, I know they aren't the best available but I really like the sound quality especially when teamed with my One X

    My missus got these with her Nokia Lumia, same make as the beats ones and really good sound quality.. use them with my PC.

    Do some research before buying Bose or Beats. You can find better for the money.

    I have AKG K701 (open back) cans for the most critical listening. Mostly I use my pair of Audio-Technica ATH-M50 (closed back) 'phones. One has a straight cable for home use; the other has a coiled cord for working around sound consoles and other places where you don't want a cable dragging over stuff. I also have several Koss earbuds for travel, exercise and whenever carry size and/or weight is an issue. I have Grado SR60 open air cans and a whole selection of other earbuds in a wide range of cost and quality that I keep at home for spares.

    I like the way beats look but I don't like the price. But either way I would never get them anyway.

    In my case I got the Beats as a free gift with my One X so couldn't possibly get any better for free :D

    I like the base qc15s that I got of Craigslist years ago for 40 bucks. I really wish Bluetooth would get better sooner...

    I have the Beats Tour earbuds and they sound great to me. I had a giftcard so I didn't have to pay the ridiculous amount that they cost so I'm happy.

    My old school Nintendo gameboy earbuds were the best earbuds I've ever owned!

    Haven't had any since then. Now I just use the stereo in my truck. :)
