Help making final decision on portable earbuds.

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

I've been meaning to finally settle down and pick up a pair of quality ear-buds after having many cheap pairs break on me over the years. At the moment, I'm debating on these ear-buds in no particular order.

1: Jaybirds BlueBuds X Sports Bluetooth Headphones 
2: Plantronics BlackBeat Go 2 Bluetooth Wireless Earbuds 

3: Razer HammerHead Pro

4: (any Beats in-ear ear-buds)

I would appreciate any kind of tip or advice to go with a certain pair or suggest another one that I should get. I'm no expert on these and without having trying out any of them, I can only go so far with the customer reviews. The pricing I would prefer to be in is as high as the Jaybirds. The in-line mic and wireless bluetooth is certainly a plus but not necessarily a deal-breaker. Thanks for any advice~!

As far as wireless earbuds go, get the Jaybirds. If that's not that important to you, I'd get the RHA MA750i's. Same price as the Bluebuds for supremely better sound. They also come with controls and a mic. I'd be glad to see you get those.

If you don't need Bluetooth, get the AX-35.

Bluetooth? 

Check out Sony SBH80, a new wireless version of Sony MH1 which is still highly regarded in sound quality

Thanks for the suggestions everyone has put in so far. I've taken a look at the suggestions and I realized what a big factor aesthetics was for me (yeah I know, pretty looking earbuds aren't always the best quality ones). But it's just one of those things where if it sounds great and looks good then that would definitely be the pair. I'm looking for ones that maybe I could do some light exercise with (jogging, lifting) so anything clunky (the housing that's worn in the back) like fnkcow suggested wouldn't be ideal for me. But thanks for all the suggestions so far !
