Pros: Inexpensive

Cons: Not Audiophile Grade, Feels like a Toy

I wanted nice headphones to use my iPod. I got them one day while walking around the mall with my girlfriend. The list price on this is $30, so I thought I was getting a deal by paying $13. They're not bad. They're just marketed at teenagers. The sound is bland, but it will get you through a day. I wouldn't recommend paying $30.00 for this. It's okay if you go on a trip and forget your gear and you decide to purchase a Sansa clip and this to listen to your music for the sake of having entertainment. Try to go somewhere where they are on sale though. Otherwise, just get gummies IEM.

Blessed by chance

Pros: Visual Interface, Top of the line components, Unlimited External Components

Cons: Battery Life, No Expandability, No FLAC support, No new updates available

  This is one of my two current iPods (the other being the iPod Shuffle 2nd Gen). I have to confess, I found this lying on the floor in a parking lot at 3pm. I waited for like thirty minutes talking to my friend to see if someone would come back so I could return it, but nobody came back. It didn't have a lock code, so I went in to see if I could use something to return it but it only had music, very bad music too.    I find this iPod lacking in some aspects, but I think that at the time it came out it was revolutionary. However, that was years ago. Back in 2007, everything was very different. iPods were everything, but this is what paved the way for the modern...

For those really on the go, just Shuffle

Pros: Small, Compact, Enough space for your favorite songs

Cons: No way to visually know what you're listening too, No FLAC support, no way to expand storage, 1GB Storage

This is one of my two current iPods (the other being the First Gen. iPod Touch). I initially purchased this model to keep my music somewhere UltraPortable for my jogs and when I'm in my car (since the Touch interface on the iPod Touch is very distracting when you're walking/driving).   I find this iPod very useful, since I can throw it basically anywhere and it clips to my jeans when I'm just walking around campus with my headphones on. I keep my top songs here, and I usually change a couple every now and then to keep myself entertained.   I think it's a great first iPod. However, I must say that the No FLAC support will be a dealbreaker for some or you'll have to...

Better than I thought

Pros: Lightweight, Round sound, Nice Case

Cons: Ears hurt after long sessions

After much research, I decided to purchase new headphones. I had been looking for good headphones for about 6 months, until I finally decided to purchase the V-Moda Crossfade M-80s. At first I was more inclined to in-ear headphones, particularly Klipsch S4s or Bose IE2. Then, I started law school and saw several classmates wearing Beats Solo and Beats Studios, apart from all the kids on the street. I started researching on which headphones I should get since I mostly listen to Rock and Jazz music. I was amazed about all the info I found. I started freaking out when I saw headphones on the 500$ area and I started to determine a budget. On or around $150.00 was the sweet spot. I was going...
