So I definitely don't know too much about headphones. I just started college and I'm currently stuck with the earbuds I got with my iPod (the 3rd generation ones) because my roommate didn't want me to bring speakers and I am near fed up with them. When I was at home I usually used my speakers and in comparison, the earbuds I have sound... dull.
I'm not sure how, exactly, to determine what earphones sound better than others but I like listening to alternative rock, EDM, pretty much anything but hip hop and rap.
What I really like about the speakers I have at home (and in my car) is that they sound really "lively". I don't know how else to describe it.
Any help/suggestions would be very much appreciated :D
