Help with my sister's christmas gift

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Ok, so as you probably can tell, I need help with finding a nice pair of earbuds (not in-ear) for my sister in time before christmas. They don't need to have a handsfree-button (but remember that it's a plus), and they don't need to isolate noise. She listens mostly to rock, alternative and pop. Thanks for any help :D Maximum price is 100 $

There aren't many decent traditional type earbuds available.

 

The Sennheiser MX581 at $30 looks like a good deal. I have the MX580 and like it very much. The MX581 is for those with smaller ears.

Looks good, but which one sounds best with rock/pop/alternative?

It is likely that the MX580 won't fit many women, so the MX581 is a much safer choice for a woman.

 

Besides which, the MX581 is now much less expensive than the MX580 on Amazon. They used to be almost the same price.
