I'm going to be hiking a good deal of the appalachian trail this summer about 800 to 1000 miles or so. I'm in need of a decent sounding pair of headphones to wear while hiking. I currently I have some UE triple.fi 10s that were reshelled into customs, so i'm not thinking i want to bring them. I also need a new audio source (currently have ipod classic 5g). My buddy will have a solar charger, strapped to his pack, easily capable of charging an ipod or AA/AAA batteries I'm looking at getting either: Klipsch Image S4s (around $50 on ebay) Q-Jays new from ebay for around $100 Monster Turbines sound nice, not sure if they'd fit my ears or not. I'm open to suggestions, I also have pretty darn small ear canals. I used to own UE700s, I ended up selling them, i felt that they sounded to metallic, and needed more bass response. Durability to pretty important as well I listen to everything a little of everything. CCR, Eagles, Various Country, Jack Johnson, arctic monkeys, etc... For a source it MUST be light weight and have great battery life. Power output and Sound quality is nice, however for once on this forum it isn't everything. 8GB min, I prefer 16GB or more I'm thinking a 5th gen ipod nano for its small weight and battery life. But the Sansa Clip 8Gb looks like a steal at $56 bucks on amazon. Money is somewhat of a concern, but quality is also important.
