Someone's burning with desire to buy a new pair of earbuds (not in-ear-phones as I hate having things in my ear canal, even then it;s for a good cause...). I listen predominantly to electronic (more like down-tempo than techno, trance or any of that) music as well as RnB (MJ, Alicia Keys and similar) and a little bit of everything else. Because of that, decent bass is a must, and I'm not entirely which earbuds to go for. For reference, I have Sennheiser HD 580 headphones and absolutely as well as the sound of my BOSE speakers with overstated bass. Oh, and I hate ear tearing highs.
So far I've come across Sennheiser (mx 470, 580 and 880 as well as the older models) which most people think favourably of. However, I've once tried my friend's mx 550 and thought it was absolute and utter crap. Even though the highs and the mids were ok, but bass was absolutely nowhere to be found and that is a no-no as far I'm concerned. My Sony Erricson earbuds have more life than the senns... Are the new models radically different to the old ones?
I've also come across AKG models (K 313, 315, 317, 319). They seem to have good bass, but some people claims they sound muffled. Opinions?
I've also come across Yuin and would buy PK3, but no one seems to be selling them in the UK...
Anything else I've missed?
Help much appreciated; buds needed badly
