Well I have an ipod and still have the original earphones. My hand has now been forced; I have super-glued the things back together more than once, but now the right earphone is going out so I need new ones.
I have a $60 or less price range, I like bands like disturbed, linkin park, and demon hunter (favorites being indestructable, warriow, ribcage, storm the gates of hell, all of hybrid theory album; haha). Not entirely related, but I'm just trying to give you an idea of what I listen to.
I don't know what's what with earphones, and I haven't had much luck with research since rating them seems so subjective. I want to know what you all think, and I'll just buy some.
On a totally different note, trying to sign up to your forum with a mobile device is a nightmare. The sign up box moves around and goes off screen and does it again when you find it again. I had to get on my computer to sign up.
