    $50 range portables for Treadmill/exercise

    My only real experience with earphones are Sennheiser MX 580 that I lost recently.  I tend to lose things at the gym alot actually.   I'm looking for something similar in sound quality, good mids and highs without boombing bass.  Has sennheiser been pushed aside in budget models for best...

    Did I kill my earbuds?

    I have a pair of Sennheiser MX580's that I've had for over 3 years. Today I was using them to listen to some lectures on my computer when my wife pointed out that she could hear everything. Apparently you still hear the audio coming from the subwoofer, albeit faintly. I poked around in my...

    Question about earphones, Sennheiser / Audio Technika

    So I am a person who likes to use earphones a lot. I like the design, the sound they produce and the comfort. I am even using earphones at home but someday I might get some high standard full size headphones. Currently I am using the Sennheiser MX 580 and am very pleased with them. The detail is...

    How do the MX 270s compare to the MX 580s?

    I have a pair of Sennheiser MX 580 earbuds, and they're the best earbuds I've had in terms of sound quality (though I know there's better)--but the left channel has started to intermittently drop out. :( I'm not willing to spend big bucks on headphones (about $30 max), I go through them about...

    Dont like IEMs. Any 'earbuds' out there in the $25-30 range ?

    I dont like inserting IEMs into my ear canals. I am ok with the apple ipod style earbuds. I just need something a bit more comfortable and better sounding. What can I consider for earbuds in the $25-30 range ?

    Decent earbuds needed (PK3 maybe?)

    I am looking for a nice set of earbuds, not IEMs since I need to be aware of outside sounds. A pair that doesn't leak too much sound would be preferable    I've been looking at the Yuin PK3s as I know they were very popular years ago but I haven't been around on audiophile websites in years...

    Please suggest some Ear Buds for 20-25$?

    Hello,   My friend needs some good suggestions for ear buds in price range 20-25$.   He doesnt like the IEM types, he wants the apple type without ear tip type ear phones. He says that he is allergic to deep insertion IEMs. Hell, he says my TF 10 SQ sucks and his apple ear buds are...

    Looking for Earbuds (not IEMs) for my small ears. Under $40 or so.

    How do I put this? First of all hello. Now that I'm done sounding like a dork... it's time for me to sound like I don't know what I'm talking about (there's a very good reason for that). I like putting a pair of cans on my head. They're generally comfortable, and sound good. They are however not...

    Looking for earbuds for under €50

    Hey guys, I've been looking around the forums in search for earbuds to replace my AKG K319s. I've noticed that the Earbud types (not the ones that go inside your ear canal) are quite 'underappreciated'. Threads about this topic were dated a quie while ago. I liked my AKG K319s, but the cables...

    MX 580 after PK3?

    I recently bought a pair of PK3's from a store, and have been really, really impressed with them. However, I did find the earbuds to be a little to mid heavy. Should I move on to the 580's or will the difference be not worth the cost? (I live in Thailand, and thus I buy from a specialty store...

    Need help with earbuds/IEM

    So a little background. I'm currently living in Bangkok, and have recently purchased a Grado SR80i. I am, however, now looking for earbuds/IEMs for whenver I'm on the road. Due to me living in Thailand, my choices are somewhat limited (and expensive, think all audiophile headphones cost...

    IEM comparable to Sennheiser MX-880 earbuds

    What are some IEMs that are comparable in sound with Sennheiser's MX880 earbuds?   I had listened to some MX980 and MX880 a while back while searching for the best earbuds for me, but decided on the MX880 because the MX980 were too big for me. I purchased the MX880, but ended up returning...

    IEM or earbuds, comtortable, but under $30 - best options?

    Sometimes, I have issues sleeping - so I listen to podcasts or audiobooks on a iPod Touch. The sound is clear and concise, but those ear buds are irritating, impossible to use while sleeping, and constantly fall out of my ears.   I'm looking for an earbud/IEM that's (1) relatively cheap...

    Does Sennheiser make any NON in-ear earbuds?

    I've checked out their website and all their earbuds seem to be in-ear or full size headphones. Does anyone know if they have some not on the website earbuds that are not in-ear?

    Something like Sennheiser MX 580 without L-shaped jack

    I'm looking for something in the same price range and audio quality range (20E/30$) with a straight plug jack. The L-shaped jack could be a problem while using them with my music player or with my Galaxy Vibrant.   As a sidenote, no Italian dealer sells Yuin earphones, and I can't stand...

    Opinion on Sennheiser MX 560/580

    Hi all,   I only managed to find similar threads so here goes;   Bought the MX 560 and although their sound is superior to my iPod iBuds by far, the main reason why I've got a bit older model is because the MX 580 or similar newer models were not quite available.   So, any of you...

    Sennheiser HD25-1 II? But the Alessandro MS1i is screaming at me ><

    In my many years of HiFi System, I never venture into portable system like recently. I guess HiFi system and 2 years old kid in the house doen't mix well. Although I spend most of my time with system, I always want a set of Grado. Mostly the look and I think I will also enjoy it's sound since I...

    Teclast TL-T51 Line out + Sennheiser MX580 volume control = Good combo :)

    Yesterday I pick up a pair of MX580 and I love the sound. Even without proper burn in, it became my instant favourite. It's detail, warm and sweet. I have a few IMEs but I prefer normal earphone, more comfortable for me. The UF10 is great, very clean, detail and fast sounding but the wire and...

    Alternative to Yuin PK3?

    Hi all,   I've just broken my 2nd set of PK3's... I *love* these earbuds but I've had severe issues with cable quality :(   Before I order my 3rd set, I just want to check if there are any comparable alternatives around the price? I got rather sick of the Y-cable too, so if there's...
