I'm looking for a good cheap pair of earbuds to replace my standard apple earbuds.
IEMs aren't really an option, as they are for wearing during work, I'm constantly moving around and the IEM seal is constantly lost. I have Sennheiser IE6s which sound great, the problem is I have to keep my head relatively still...
I recently bought a pair of Sennheiser MX 470s from Amazon, and was really disappointed. They were very weak-sounding and tinny. Standard apples just blow them out of the water, even though I gave them a good 3 day burn-in. Its made me doubt how effective the MX 880/980s could be and a bit unwilling to shell out the extra cash to test if they do sound better.
Really I just want a full, rich sound, something that makes me love listening to my music again.
