Hello! So I’m looking for some new earphones to use with my ipod. I had some Bose IEMs, but the plug is starting to break. They’re the first earphones I’ve had besides the cheapo dollar store ones, I had them for about a year and they cost a little under $100. From lurking around here a little bit, it seems like Bose doesn’t have a great reputation, and also I’m just ready to get higher quality sound. I’m still on a student budget though – I’ve saved up a little bit and am looking for the best option (reasonably flexibly) in the 150-200 dollar range. I think the Yamaha EPH-100 might be good, but I’ve only looked around a little bit. What do you think?
I need to order these kind of soon – it’s disrupting my life not to have good earphones, lol. I just don’t know what I’m looking for, since I haven’t gotten the chance to try out different ones. I also prefer a somewhat durable construction (and a carrying case would be nice),… I use them daily walking at school, sleep with them in, and wrap them around my ipod to toss them in my purse, so they get a lot of abuse (wonder why my others broke lol).
If it helps, I listen to alternative, classic rock, top 40, classical,… a little bit of everything, but I don’t really listen to too much music with a very heavy bass. Anyway, since you guys at this forum seem to be the experts, I was hoping you could help me out here, I’m lost with all these model numbers lol.
