I am looking to replace my zune premiums with something around $50 but I will look at suggestions which fall under $100. I got them with my zune and overall I like them quite a bit. The major reason I want to replace them is that I can't stand the microphonics on them. I listen to my zune almost solely at the office and if I move at all I hear tons of scratching because of the weird braided chord. Besides that, I would just like to get something that is a bit of a step up in audio quality. So far I have been looking at the RE2 with the Fiio E5 from head-direct for about 40 bucks or the brainwavz m1 for about the same price. I listen to a variety of music but mostly rock, punk, a little bit of heavy metal, and a lot of irish music such as flogging molly, dropkick murphys, etc. I don't care much about a lot of bass and I find that I usually prefer clarity and the ability to distinguish all the instruments as lots of irish music has many, many instruments.
