good noise cancelling in ear headphone?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
just recently my headphones crapped out on me so I guess this is my chance to invest some money in a better set of headphones.
I'm not really big into full size headphones because they are bulky to carry around and get warm/uncomfortable. I've been reading some guides on good noise cancelling in ear headphones, what do you guys recommend? My budget is $100-$200

thanks!

Don't have enough personal experience to recommend one product, but here a few I've heard good things about that you might want to experience:

there are just too may good highly rated headphones on amazon so I'm really lost on which one I should go with, lol. They all look similar but the price difference is huge, (from 50 to 400+)

LOL. That is a wonderful image of knowledge. Look at the in-ear portion and make a pick. The in-ear comparison was done by |joker| who knows his stuff well.

Earlier this summer I decided it was time to get some IEM's. After long long time worth of research I sprung for the Triple Fi's. All I can say is I made the right choice. They are comfortable, do a fantastic job at blocking outside noise, and best of all they sound absolutely amazing. Get em, you wont be disappointed. They also come with a set of comply tips, which are awesome.

I'm thinking next year to maybe have some custom molded UE's made, or have my TF10's mounted in molded pieces.

I can nit pick the guide's inaccuracy e.g. AD700...balanced sound? ROFL.
Too many think either lots of bass or no bass at all is 'balanced'.
Blind 'blanket' headphones guides like that are stupid really.
These so many factors to consider really. Hell, I just might write one.

Anyway, more details plz:

Music taste? (important!)
You live in?
What devices do you intend to plug this into?
What environments do you intend to sue this in?
Other factors to consider?

Music taste:
everything? lol

Lives in:
Massachusetts

Device:
iPhone mostly

Environment:
Outside walking/jogging most of the time

Other factors:
ummm, good noise cancelling, comfortable for extended wear, durable, many of my old cheap headphones crapped out because of the connection between the wire and the jack was bad.
