Hmm, well I've decided to get either the ER6 or the ER6i, I can't decide, the ER6i is supposed to be easier to drive from a mp3 player, and has more bass, but the ER6 has better accuracy, and is black(which is a plus).
So better representation of the sound, or more bass.
i had the er6i before they broke and I currently use the ep630s. The er6i is better but not when you factor in the cost, the ep630 has great bang for the buck and unlike most of the other headphones in its price range it has no huge flaws. Amazon is currently sold out though thats where i bought mine.
Hey guys, I just got my first mp3 player and am looking for some decent cheap headphones to use until I eventually put down the cash for some nice $100+ ones. Basically I am looking to spend only 30 or 40 dollars and my research has led me to be looking at the creative ep-630's and the sennheiser cx300-s.
I want some isolation but its ok if it isn't the best as long as it makes a noticeable difference. I don't want to have to damage my hearing just to hear the music over background noise but I don't mind being able to be aware of whats around me. These are going to be my cheap wear everywhere earbuds or iem's so sometimes I might need to be able to be aware of whats around me.
The sennheisers are a little more expensive. Is it worth it? They are $40 on amazon right now. If they are much better than the creatives then I wouldn't mind although $30 sounds a lot better to me for some reason. Only problem with the creatives is I can't find anywhere that has them in stock. What do you guys think? I am new to all of this but I have been reading all day.

I think the Creative EP-630 is exactly what you are looking for and well within your budget.
How are the Creative EP-630s? I haven't seen many topics discussing them (then again, I don't dig deep into the later pages). The prices on them are pretty cheap, and I'm thinking of getting IEMs to use on the subway/train.
