So I broke my ear phones for my IPOD about a year ago and since then have gone through like 5 different pairs of replacements…
THey never fit right, stay in, etc, etc…
Does anyone have any suggestions for a kick ass pair of headphones?
Brand, model, price…
In the past two years I have probably gone through about 300 dollars worth of earphones just trying different brands. (Not all of this was my expenditure, don’t worry).
At any rate, I have concluded one thing: earphones are individually specific.
I will recommend in the under fifty dollar, in-ear category two different sets of cans:
The phillips HE 592
Sony fonotopias (or something like that)
I personally own a pair of Phillips 592s and a pair of Shure E2s (100+ dollar cans). I use the Shures only rarely and listen to the 592s constantly; they sound good, they cost 20 bucks, and they fit my huge ears perfectly.
In my experience, people with smaller ears prefer the fit of the sonys.
Really, it’s a matter of preference, trial, and error.
I would say that Koss electronics are always bad news, though.
