I think I am dead wrong in catagorizing them all as "earbuds" so I apologize..
However, I was wondering if there were any really good sets of portable headphones that could survive my pocket I should be aware of.
I had a really decent pair that came with my samsung captivate, but the right ear stopped working. They actually had somewhat decent quality for a portable pair and with music ranging from 128 to 320 kbps I really didn't feel like I was "loosing much" in a portable solution...
My brother gave me a cheap set of 9$ one's he had laying around.. Disgusting quality some parts of songs are barely able to be heard and they just sound over all dull.. There is no "pop" to the music..
Well now.. the driver is literally falling out of one of the sides.. While it still works.. I am counting the life down.
Unfortunately I really am rough on my portable headphones.. partly because I work out with them and then they go in my pocket.. since I live in louisiana.. this means lots of humidity which is hell on eletronic devices.
I would really like a durable, high quality portable set of headphones.
I don't expect to have anything like my sennheiser hd 598s for 30$ or less... But, maybe at least a pair that doesn't make my music so bad.. I notice it while doing a mile on the elpytical.. Something that makes me enjoy my music a little bit more and think less about the fact that I'm exercizing.. I really prefer to try somethng else out than spend another 30$ on a headset to replace the one that is broke. It was a great free headset.. but, I suspect for 30$ i could do better..
