Picking low-budget earphones.

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Hi. So I need 2 different pair of headphones which to use with my Sandisk Sansa Clip+ mp3 player (haven't bought yet). Would be nice if I could by them both for under 80$.

 

1)The first ones i need for jogging. I think about simple style buds (not in-ear) so to better hear the traffic. Also it would be great if I would't need to adjust them all the time to keep them in my ear. I have found SENNHEISER PMX 680(adidas), what about them?

 

2)The second earphones I need for everyday walking and music listening. Preferably in-ear type, around ~30$. I'm not an audiophile, and I probably won't hear a difference between 30$ and 60$ ones. My only concern is fair build quality (wouldn't want for them to break in 4 months). 

 

So asking for your advice on buying low-budget headphones.

For 2) I would take a look at the Brainwavz ProAlpha, Brainwavz M2 and M3 IEM's. Good earphones for their price point and also available on |joker|'s 138 (and counting) IEM review thread. The newly opened MP4Nation.com seem to have competitive prices, I'm a UK'er so I'm basing that off what I have seen Head-Fi'ers mention in other threads.

 

Maybe I should be sacrificed to the Audio Gods for suggesting this but maybe you could get away with 1 great pair of earbuds and a pair of Comply Whoomp! eadbud enhancers (They fit over buds to make them in-ear type). Not sure whether these are great and I'd never heard of them until I started peeking around Head-Fi less than a month ago but I guess it's something to throw into the pot of ideas.

 

Other Head-Fi'ers will be able to direct you better.

I'm not from UK and can't find any Brainwavz products nor in my local shop nor in ebay. But atleast they look and cost good.

You'll probably have better luck finding the ViSang equivalents of the Brainwavz earphones on ebay - the Brainwavz brand belongs to mp4nation.net (who ship worldwide for free) so there's no reason for them to be up on ebay.

 

 

This chart may help:

 

ViSang Earphones and their Brainwavz equivalents

ViSang R04 ($100) Brainwavz M3 ($90)
ViSang R03 ($65) Brainwavz M2 ($60)
N/A Brainwavz M1 ($40)
ViSang R02 ($45) Brainwavz ProAlpha ($40)
ViSang R01 ($35) N/A
N/A Brainwavz Alpha ($15)
