Recently I've been looking at buying these. They are only ~$75 and got very good reviews on Amazon, but I can't seem to find anything on them. They would be replacing my default Apple earbuds. I'm primarily looking at either these or the typical RE0, but I've heard the RE0 has some microphonic/build quality issues, and these look much sturdier.
Anyway, does anyone have these? Should I buy these for casual listening? How do they compare to the RE0?
I really only want to buy one pair of headphones to last me quite a while (I'm in high school, I have no job, so I really can't afford to spend much on headphones).
Also, will it make a huge difference in sound quality if I use mp3 files I just download from Amazon? (I assume these are 128kbps) I already have a lot of music that I don't want to buy CDs of again just to get them to a higher quality.
I listen to many different types of rock and metal.
