Recommend me Non-In Ear buds

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 

I'm looking to replace the stock headset that comes with the galaxy s2 because it is In Ear which is not comfortable for me so I am looking for regular earbuds something similar to these

http://www.amazon.com/Sennheiser-MX5...7707600&sr=1-1

But with a microphone/volumecontrol/ 
Price range $20-$50

Anything in terms of preference, sound-wise, sound signature wise, genres, build or isolation? It'd probably be more helpful on both our parts if you did specify some more.

Thanks for the reply. I went to the link you provided and I did not see 1 non in earbuds. I don't need anything specific just the things I stated such as a mic and non in ear. I listen to many different genres ranging from house-rap. Durability and no static would also be nice

I have a similar issue with IEM's, they always give me ear canal pain.  Which don't you try the porta pro?

They aren't "audiophile" by any means, they still sound great for the money.

I think I mixed up some terminology here. I'm looking for non in earbuds with a mic sorry about that. Something similar to stock iphone ones

These were on sale for $25 a little while ago but they are still competent for the price:

Edit:  You haven't really described what you were looking for sound wise, so I think you might be disappointed with these if you wanted sparkly treble or strong mid-bass presence.

Oh wow, my apologies wasn't thinking properly last night.  Honestly I have not heard a good earbud, they typically fall short when compared to an IEM.   

Again sorry about that etysmile.gif

No problem. I'm not expecting much from them

These look interesting and are heavily discounted:
