I'm a newb to the forum and have been researching different options for ipad, iphone, and POD guitar sessions.. I need a quality set on or in ear phones but I'm on a tight budget ($40). I jam with a POD pedal daily and listen to some of my favorite bands on my iphone (Brant Bjork, Porcupine Tree, Deftones, Clutch, guitar stuff ect.) I dont need a bloated base, but enjoy a bottom that doesn't sound thin, a tight lowish-mid, shimmering but subtle highs. I'm hoping for a cloth type cable with good length, comfort level of around three hours per listening session, and a mic would help take those annoying work calls.I also don't want anything to big as to draw unwanted attention at work. I down loaded the JVC BBE app for a bit of control but the apple buds just suc on the low end and hurt my ears after 30 mins, and the Colouds my girlfriend gave me just look blah and sound meh. Any help is greatly appreciated!
I might go up on budget if I found some phones with the warmth of my tube amps and dynamics of my THX set up.
