Are earbuds dying?

post #1 of 63
Thread Starter 

The current Sennheiser's earbuds only left with MX270 & MX365, both are low end,

The rest are all headphones and IEMs, I'm glad I bought MX760 & MX90VC years ago.

Especially for MX90VC, such an underrated earbuds in this community,

It's the most comfortable earbuds I have used, I always hated earbuds keep falling off of my ears,

but twist to fit system solved the problem, it's a great regret that it didn't get more successful.

The SQ is comparable to my HD650 at least to my ears. I wish Sennheiser would re-produce

some classic earbuds such as MX500, and MX90VC.

 

What do you guys think?

Very little market share.

 

On a daily basis I still use my Yuin earbuds.

MX980 has been discontinued, CX985 is IEM.

I am picking between PK2 and PAA-1 PRO, PK1 is my last resort if I could't pick one from the former two.

And how 'bout Blox..........that is, if you happen to catch them with inventory.

 

There will always be a market for earbuds simply because they do things that other's don't.   But it is a shrinking market.

I was lucky to get a pair of M2c when they were in stock. I've been using them to watch movies lately. Really good full sound.

Yea, I found that out later because it wasn't on the USA site... I mean its price is similar to PK1, so I might go for it when it releases in the U.S.

Well, since the word "earbuds" has essentially become synonymous with "suck like a vacuum" and rightfully so, we can only hope the market does die out.

That's a bit harsh. I need to use earbuds for watching movies, youtube, skype calls (talking with iems is horrible), and when I need to hear external noises. Sure, most of the current popular earbuds suck, but they didn't always suck. Manufacturers are just mostly putting out some horrible cheap ones these days because there doesn't seem to be a big market for quality buds.

 

My favourites for a few years now have been the sony ed12 (and the ed21 before that). I'm surprised head-fiers haven't latched onto these, they sound better to me than even the mx580.
