I have leaving for college next year and my Grado SR60is just died so I am looking for a new pair of earbuds or in-ear headphones. I do not not really know where to look when it comes to in-ear headphones/earbuds. I prefer the way open headphones sound versus closed headphones. So, I do not know if that is similar to in-ear vs. earbuds. My budget is limited to about $100. I listen to mostly rock music but balanced SQ is best in case my music tastes change. Thanks for the help guys. If you have any questions jsut ask.
