Hey everyone. Freshman in college here, been here 2 weeks, and my PFE's just cut out on me.I'm getting no sound in the right ear. I was using them to help me get to sleep. NPR doesn't come through in my dorm room so I would listen to podcasts as I drift off to sleep, which worked great until my wonderful perfect PFEs broke. I went and bought whatever they had at the bookstore, which turned out to be this awful skullcandy crap that hurts my ears and ups the bass to a ridiculous level. I've been using them reluctantly, but I really do need something new, and on a budget! I can't really afford another pair of PFEs right now, I need something more in the like $30-$50 range, quite probably some sennheiser CXs, but I thought I'd throw it out there to all of you for any other suggestions. These need to be COMFORTABLE, something I can sleep in -- I usually take them out before I actually fall asleep, but I do need to be able to lie on my side with them in and not have it hurt like hell. They also need to be fairly isolating so that I can use them while I study in the library -- I have my SR-60s for the dorm, but they leak too much to use in the library. So comfort is my #1 priority, with isolation a close 2nd, and actual sound quality is actually not crucial, as long as it's better than these skullcandy pieces of junk I have. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance.
