Hey guys, I'm new here but I've been reading a lot of stuff here for years.
Now I know ear buds are not always recommended here but I absolutely cannot stand in-ears, they are just uncomfortable for me no matter how many I have tried (and I've tried many).
After many, many years of trying and searching, I discovered the sound that I absolutely love, and that is in the AKG K315. I know people say that the bass is a mess and it's not clear, but that's exactly what I love about it. I love that the bass is heavy, muddled there's a warm quality to it. It's probably a weird taste but that really is what I need.
The problem is, they break. A lot. I've gone through at least 5 pairs in the past 3 years, mainly because I just throw them around and curl them around my ipod, phone and everything else. Which really sucks because I just cannot find any other buds with the same sound. Some people suggested Sennheiser mx560, which I bought and have been using for the past year and a half (I just gave up on replacing the AKGs every few weeks), but I just don't like the weak bass. Though, they are durable, since they have endured the same wear and tear and are still working perfectly.
So is there something out there with the same sound as the K 315? This has been bothering me for a long time now and I really hope someone can help me.
