I know I'm new to the forums and everything, and my first post is also one asking for advice rather than helping, but I really need some advice.
So I've been using Creative EP-630's for the last year, went through approximately two of them (possibly three in a 1.5 year span?) and quite honestly I am sick of spending money on these. I thought the sound quality was okay, but not great (defintely worth the $10 I spent on each though). Now, I am looking for an upgrade, something that will last me a while.
I have been doing a lot of research on headphones lately, but I get so many different answers because everybody has different taste. Also, I am not what you would call an "audiophile" so I have no idea what some people say. So heres some things I think that will help people select a pair for me :)
My Taste of Music: VERY ranged. I listen to very slow vocal songs to rap. I listen to a bit of rock (probably my least), and a lot of "technoish" (put in quotes because they aren't considered techo, but pop which is very similar) songs. Now I'm not that concerned with bass but would prefer SOME. I don't want my buds rocking my brain out of my ears out like I'm in the middle of a rap concert. So basically, I'm looking for a pair that can perform a range of things.
*Note I do not listen to heavy metal!
Durability will be a great factor in my decision because I want these to last.
Also finally, I would prefer if they were easy to put on and do not fall off easily. Cord rubbing on shirt is bearable but I would prefer not to have this.
Now I have found some of these headphones from doing some research:
And a lot of others, but I forgot them at this time (its 5 AM in the morning here). Would you guys help me pick the right pair? Or suggest new ones? (I heard something about Joker's thread but I couldn't locate it :P)
Thanks in advance.
