Upgrade from Skullcandy Ink'd earbuds?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Hello, I'm a sophomore in high school, right now for headphones I have Skullcandy ink'd 

http://www.amazon.com/Skullcandy-INKd-Earbuds-S2INCZ-034-Black/dp/B003GIJTR8/ref=pd_bxgy_e_img_b

 

and Sony MDR-PQ2 (On the ear headphones)

I am impressed with the quality offered by the Skullcandy Ink'd for their cheap price, plus they have a lifetime warranty, and they have broken once (as skullcandys' tend to do) but I was able to get them replace for free at Best Buy. 

 

Right now I like the Sony ones, they have great bass and sound, and they're very comfortable to use for long periods of time. 

 

The type of music I listen to is mainly Metal, Rap (underground stuff, not played on radio), and electronic - I like a lot of bass for Dubstep.

My source is my iPod touch 4th generation. - I listen to music on the bus, sometimes in the halls at schools, and at home probably totaling 3+ hours a day.

 

I haven't done much research yet, but what I'm looking for is a pair of Earbuds/Earphones/ IEM (I don't know the difference between them, sorry) 

I'm looking for something I might just be able to pick up at Best Buy, because my mom makes a big deal sometimes when I purchase off the internet with her card. 

I have been looking into the Klipsch Image S4, and heard that they are a good IEM for under $100. 

 

My budget is going to probably be under $100., I have a job as a soccer referee which in Minnesota only allows for fall, spring and summer, and I'm currently looking to get a new job at Burger King or something local. 

 

What do you recommend for something with a lot of bass for under $100?

 

Thanks!

joker has done a marvelous job comparing all of these IEMS and I always use it as a reference when I'm thinking of trying something new
