Monster Turbine | AKG K370 | Denon AH-C710

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I'm looking for a good in-earbud mainly for sport/gym/training ... I have a Sennheiser CX400 which sounds ok but it falls out quickly...
I need something that really grips in there, even if im running, and has to sound better than the CX400, looking for good deep bass and nice clean treble with a nice "openess", dont want anything crazy, just something that wont fatigue my ears quickly, im very sensible to distortion...

i will be ordering from here; Ear Buds/Earphones

there are so many different brand i have no clue what to go for... The AKG K370 is tempting, and thats the most im willing to pay for one (150$), but have no clue what kind of sound signature they have...

Tried to find a "in-earbud review" with no luck too...

thx

PS; it will compliment a Samsung P3

I lift/run with the Turbines, and although I get a good seal with them, the microphonics are terrible (the sound of the cable rubbing up against you).
I don't think I'd recommend them for sports.

im not sure what you mean about microphonics, what kind of sound does it do ?

microphonics  is just as he stated... The sound of the cables rubbing againt you or moving around. The sound travels up the cable and you can hear it in you head. Kind of like when you plug you ears and grind you teeth or swallow... you can hear it.

 

It annoying to most. Some headphones are worse than other when it comes to microphonics .

for working out, find something designed to wear "over the ear" as opposed to straight down (which will result in more falling out and microphonic issues). Some phones comes specifically with over the ear guides -- small plastic things that the cable loops around
