Help with finding a good pair of in-ears for music

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

As someone who knows not much about headphones and audio specs and such, I have no idea what to look for when shopping for headphones. I know a tiny bit, and I've become vaguely familiar with the terminology, but it still doesn't mean much to me.

But, I do know what I'm looking for: I'm looking for a good pair of earphones(in-ear), maybe $50 tops, up to ~$70 if they are really good and are bound to last a good bit, to use at school, when exercising/walking/etc., or doing other kinds of active things. Mostly would be used on my phone or a public computer. I listen to too wide a range of music, so I don't really know what to say there. I'd also like to be able to keep my music in and other sounds out pretty well, in fact keeping the music in is important as they will probably be used in public places a lot. Oh, and a pretty big selling point for me is comfort. The ones I was using before these either constantly fell out or created a sort of vacuum in my ear which messed with the sound quality and was uncomfortable. It was difficult to get them into a position where they sounded correct, and it would hardly last long before they shifted again. The ones I'm using now stay in my ears well but sort of feel like they're 'sitting', like there's space around them.

 

I've been browsing around Head-Fi for a couple days now, looking through the reviews and such, and there are 3 pairs I was thinking about getting: the Xiaomi Piston 2s, the Audio Technica ATH-CK500s, and my friend suggested going to the Audio Technica site, and I was only sort of considering getting the ATH-CHX5iS SonicFuels. Though, I still feel like I'm missing something. I was leaning toward the Xiaomi Pistons before deciding I could just post a thread and ask for advice. So, opinions?

For starters, try the Ultimate Ears UE600

Personally for me Xiaomi Pistons setup at work really works :)
