post #17071 of 35473
I'm traveling later this month and I'm looking to buy some good earbuds for the plane and gym. I'm looking for earbuds that can provide good noise isolation or noise cancelling for the plane and can also stand up to sweat in the gym. I know it seems like a strange leap from AT to SOUL but I'm trying to find earbuds that can serve both purposes. I'm not an audiophile and not looking to pay $100 for earbuds that could potentially be damaged by sweat. If anyone has any suggestions for sports earbuds and changing out the tips to provide noise-isolation I'd appreciate those ideas as well.

These are two options I've found but the AT have the noise-cancelling box which may be annoying when working out. The SOUL earbuds seem like a cheaper version of Beats by Dre which I know in this circle are considered overpriced and overhyped. I'm looking at these because they may provide decent noise-isolation if I use some Comfy TX foam tips and may stand up to the gym test. I'm open to any other product suggestions that won't exceed $70.

Amazon:

Audio Technica ATH-ANC23 QuietPoint Active Noise-Cancelling In-Ear Headphones - $54.90

or

SOUL by Ludacris SL99 High-Def Sound Isolation In-Ear Headphones (Silver) - $37.73

What do you think of the:

Klipsch Image S4 -II

S4 is a decent IEM and the S4i simply has an inline mic for iOS devices I believe. The one I linked is for enhanced bass.

I'm ordering an S4-II. Thanks for the help.

NP and hope you enjoy them!

S4 is a great earphone indeed, but I personally prefer the better rounded sony ex510s

They were just $102 back in April..I would hold off for a while.

I bought mine for $105.98 on June 22nd, but ended up cancelling the order because I knew I'd be disappointed coming from my current lineup. But yes, wait until they're under $110 to buy.

The ATH50's must be good as so many people have them. So it must be recommended by people.

Really wish I had that amp now. I want to listen to my HD650's properly!

Can anyone give me a quick opinion on them? How the sound-stage compared to say a AD700? I will be using them for 70% Music (rap, electronic, rock) and 30% Gaming (FPS) and pairing them with my Xonar DG.
Do you think the 668Bs would be the best option for a person on a budget but wants better than average sound? Thinking about purchasing a new set of headphones within the next week or so.

Thanks for any guidance you can provide.

Can anyone give any opinions on these headphones? Mainly how they are at FPS gaming? Actually leaning more towards the Superlux HD681 now as they look more comfortable than the 668Bs. Can get them for $65.00 CAD shipped and tax included.
