Hello all, I will be purchasing the LG V20 phone in a few weeks and want to also purchase some high quality portable headphones that are around the same size the Koss KSC75's.  I have Sennheiser HD650s and absolutely love them. However, they are quite big and bulky and aren't fun to run with.  I love Koss KSC 75's but the friggin clips ALWAYS ALWAYS ALWAYS break within a few weeks.  I want some high quality sounds.  My budget is $600.  They will primarily be used for the phone I will be buying and sometimes in my laptop.  I prefer over the ear but I don't mind in ear phones either.  Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.
 
Note:  I looked through the thread regarding in ear earbuds and the info was just overwhelming.  Sooooo many to choose from.  I saw the Rose Maysa's.  How do they sound?

If you like the HD650 then for casual use you might like the Fender FXA-2. I have the HD600 and my on the go IEM is the Aurisonics ASG-1.3 (Fender absorbed them and the FXA-2 is the old Kicker model).

Thabk you for the replies! I prefer earphones with over the ear clips for when I'm jogging or cycling. Or some very stable iems that won't fall out of my ear evey other minute.

Unless your outer ear cavity is too small, then the Aurisonics/Fenders will stay in there with no problems. The only reason why I don't use my ASG-1 for the gym is because the clear shell and cable turn green and yellow. Aurisonics gave me a replacement when one of the shells cracked (they asked for it back, I'm guessing they also want to do humidity tests on it, as it's far more humid down here) and I don't want this one looking like a tea-drinking smoker's gnashers (like my own). The Kicker/FXA-2 and others in that line won't have the same problem with black cables and the colored finish on the shells, but I'd still say you need a separate case for after the gym. Use something that just uses a velcro flap (like small cam bags) with silica packs for the sweaty, wet IEMs, then when you get home air them out before putting them in a closed case where the moisture won't be able to go anywhere.
