Which headphones are better for the money

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Well I need some ear buds because running with HD595's on is kinda a problem


senn ocx 880

or

bose ie2


are what I've had my eyes on.


I mean, either way I'll be good but is the 50 bucks or whatever worth it?

Sennheiser. If you have the extra $50 they would be worth it.

My vote goes to Seinheiser as well. I've owned a couple pairs and been very satisfied.

I've actually owned a set of the first version of those Bose Earbuds. I was not pleased with them due to how they fit in my ears. The sound quality was excellent (as it should be for Bose), but I found myself fiddling with them to get them into a good position more often that I liked, so I returned them.

Thus, I vote: Sennheiser.

Wouldn't spend that much on buds myself, but if I were, I'd go for the Sennheiser pair.

They look more comfortable.

The first ones you stated are better but those are great for under $100. Sennheisers are more of a 'professional' series of headphones were Bose is more on the marketing side. Bose are just loud... but not that great of balanced quality to even them out. Sennheisers have that balanced quality you'd want.

Sennheiser CX models aren't known for exceptional sound quality, and Bose is... overpriced crap.
