Hey guys-- I just joined up recently. I figured rather than digging through Amazon reviews like I have been for the last few hours, I'd just ask you guys what you think. You seem to know your stuff here.
(It's worth noting I'm quite new to this scene, and don't really know the difference between in-ear headphones, earphones, and in-ear monitors. Is there one?)
I think I'm definitely below the range you guys normally talk about here but I've seen a few topics on low-price earphones so I thought I'd give it a shot.
My last pair of earphone were a pair of JLAB J6MS earbuds. I liked them, but couldn't get them to fit quite right and they were never super comfortable and never sounded awesome. They, uh, went through the wash on accident. So I decided to get a new pair, and a hopefully better pair.
The consensus I'm reading here is that in the very low price range, the Philips SHE3590BK/10 are the winners in sound quality. However, it seems like their construction isn't that great. I want some earphones that are a little more sturdy and comfortable.
I mainly listen to alternative rock and indie pop music so I don't want a pair of super-duper bass-heavy earphones at the expense of everything else. I'd rather a pair that covers all the ranges well (I do like there to be a definite discernable bass, though.) A lot of the pairs I see seem to entirely focus on bass.
Can any of you guys recommend a pair that you think would work well based on the information I've given as well as comfort, build, and sound quality?
Thanks a lot guys!
