I'm looking for some decent earbuds for the gym, skateboarding, snowboarding, and biking in the under $100 range. Not interested in IEMs.
The main things I'm looking for, in order:
1. Sub bass extension
3. Treble extension
Kind of like the earbud equivalent of my ATH-M50s. Soundstage is not important to me at all for these.
So far it sounds like the HiSoundAudio PAA-1 Pro and the Apple Earpods are both good options. I've read a decent amount about both, but I haven't really been able to find anything comparing the two. I'm guessing the HiSoundAudios are more balanced and clear. But how do they compare in extension at both ends? How noticeable is the mid-bass hump of the Earpods compared to the PAA-1 Pros? Which buds have more controlled bass?
Also, are there any other good earbuds that meet my criteria that I've overlooked?
Any input will be greatly appreciated!
