Looking for some good earphones

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I've been using some cheap Nokia earphones that came with my old 5800 phone (I was shocked they actually sounded pretty nice) however the left one recently stopped working so I figured I could just buy some more but the ones I have dont sound anywhere near as good as my original pair.

So being as amazon reviews are impossible to trust can anyone recommend me some decent earphones for under £20? I must stress I dont want the in-ear bud type, just regular old school earphones. I listen to mainly rock and metal.

A little solder and you can fix your old ones for free. Should take no more than 10 min to do if you have soldering experience. If you do not have the experience then it might take you 20 min.
