I recommend looking into AKG. Don't buy Koss.

i like my senny headphones, but that's 'cause it's the only headphone that i found after searching time and time again that fits nicely on my head.
it's a PMX 60, not THAT high stuff, but a comfortable fit is a first for me, since i wear it as soon as i leave my room, and won't take it off until i'm back.

the forums on http://www.afterdawn.com/ and http://www.hydrogenaudio.org/ might have more.

Skull Candy headphones and the Ipod ear buds good sound qua;ity and very loud.

Its not your mp3 player that isn't loud, its the headphones!

1. iPod ear buds are crap. I haven't seen any yet that are well designed.

2. Skull Candy headphones and earbuds both kick ass. Amazing sound quality, and very comfortable.

3. Both the mp3 player and the headphones count in volume. When played through our house system, my Zune is louder than my parents' iPods.

4. Zune Premium earbuds (free with an 80 gig, dunno how much they cost seperate) are absolutely excellent. They're comfortable, they have good sound quality, and they have a durable nylon (I think. Something like that, anyway) cord.

I have that pair of earbuds, and they're the best that I've ever worn. I can have them in my ears for hours without pain, unlike Ipod headphones that would be uncomfortable after 10 minutes. They're about $20, but I got mine for free so I'm not sure if they're reasonably priced or not.

Totally. I got mine free too, and I LOVE them. Especially cause the fabric cord has magical anti-kink abilities, and the magnetic buds keep the cord from tangling.

I'd say that while they're not as good looking as a pair of $40 Skull Candy earbuds, they're probably about as good operationally.

Skull Candy.

I have not found headphones that can contest them.

They drown out my mother's screeching, not many headphones have that capability.

Besides that fact, at times I'll have them in and forget they're in my ears. They're almost disgustingly comfortable.

i agree with the voluntary, skull candy, i dont have a pair but my friend does, the sound quality and volume contest the iPod headphones by alot and they are ridiculously comfortable.

Vol you've got my opinion on skull candy down pact.

When I got my pair I listened to one of my favorite songs(must have listened to it over fifty times in my lifetime) and I noticed parts in it that had previously been inaudible to me. Like I actually really heard it for the fist time.
:D It was swell.

If you can dish out $100 then go for the bose in ears man. i've had them for a year with no issues whatsoever. the only thing is that the rubbery things on the end can fall off if you fling em around too much when theyre not in your ear, but replacements only cost a couple bucks.

@daemon

He had something productive to say.

Unlike you.

And you KNOW I don't defend people often. [Especially him.]
