Hi folks I have the SE 760 slide phone that I play my music on. I have the default sony headset that came with the phone. Sounds pretty good I must admit. But its not comfortable enough and I still feel it can be cleaner. LOL Yeah I know once an audiophile, always an audiophile. Now I need to know if there is any major difference between the sound on a w760 walkman phone and an Ipod and well say a Nokia 5530 xpress music phone? This portable system will be used for both my exercise since I am trying to loose 80 lbs. And well used when I need some good loud music without disturbing anyone in the other room. I have decided to go with either of the skull candy http://www.amazon.com/Skullcandy-S2TTBZ-CZ-Titan-Earbuds-Chrome/dp/B0023RRNKI/ref=sr_1_5?ie=UTF8&s=electronics&qid=1273734257&sr=1-5 and this newer one here http://www.amazon.com/Skullcandy-SC-SBB3-5-Smokin-Earbud-Black/dp/B000CMTZO8/ref=dp_cp_ob_e_title_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1273736284&sr=8-31 And yes yes yes I know skull candy is crap. Remember I had Senn HD555 and Denon D2000 but I am specifically speaking about the very low price these are going for on Amazon here. For the $$$ can we really complain? that sc sbb series is only $18 US My concern is how long will it last? I heard most ear buds no matter the brand always seem to give out in a few months one side always short out. I recently sold my audio rig. Well I had a Denon D2000 and a Asus Xonar DX sound card. Got a good deal so I let it go to be honest I have recently retired from Audiophile I have been in this hobby over 5 years. I still will never forget my Denon D2000 they were the most beautiful thing I ever owned in my life. I owned so many the Ath-M50 and HD555 and the list just goes on. My reason for retiring from audiophile is really because I do not have the time anymore. To appreciate audiophile you must sit in a dark room and listen to very high quality rip music mostly FLAC to be honest. It was a nice journey without a doubt, I had known of head fi many years BTW. I am not in anyway new to this site. But audiophile was wasting my life because I am young and I had decided to get a Job a real one instead of spending so much time on head fi and other forums. I know one thing I will never look at bose again and say its the best and when someone says it is the best I will laugh a lot. I am not looking to get back into the audiophile hobby anytime soon. Maybe one day when I get a wife and married and I am older and have nothing to worry about maybe then I will get back into the hobby. But for now I just want a ear bud for around $30 US or less that will do the Job without falling apart.
