I'm not an audiophile, but I do like music and good sounding audio equipment ;P
I've been using the Sony MDRXB60EX for about 9 months, but alas some plastic came off the left bud (exposing the driver inside) and since it's out of warranty, I'm out of luck.
They weren't very pricey at around 40$, and I could always buy another pair, I listen to alot of Hip Hop, K-Pop, and ballads sometimes, a fair mix of everything overall.
I was looking through some options around a similar price point (60$ MAX, preferable under) but I'm really lost as to what to look for, my tech knowledge does not extend to audio equipment sadly :/
I really liked how the Sony's sounded, but I'm not impressed by their warranty nor the fact that that plastic bit fell off after only 9 months of regular usage. If it helps you experts make recommendations, I'm going to be using these earbuds with the Lumia 920, Surface Pro, and a Nintendo 2DS (soon to be purchased). A flat/tangle free cable is a must, I know audio quality is important over everything, but some of these cheaper JVC buds look subjectively bad, maybe I'm spoiled by Sony design :P
So far I've looked hard at these:
The broken Sonys
Klipsch S4 ii (hesitant on these since they seem not very bassy by design, and some bad reviews on amazon)
Finally, the techie part of me always prefers something newer, though I guess audio doesn't evolve as rapidly as computer hardware, if there's anything newer, that would be nice XD
