Good headphones for UNDER 100$

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

Hi,

i broke my ipod headphones a couple weeks ago and don't want to pay for a new pair. I'm ready to pay between 50-100$ for better ones.

Now my question is, what is the difference between in-ear headphones:

http://reviews.cnet.com/headphones/k...-33577358.html

or, ipod-like headphones (doesn't go into the ear as much) :



What's the difference in terms of sound, comfort?

And if you could tell me wich heaphones would be the best in my price range (0-100$) it would be appreciated. Do the ones i put as examples are good ones?

Thanks and sorry for my english....

Those Klipsh headphones actually have really good sound for the price. I have a pair. I use them for on the go ipod listening and they are pretty awesome. For the price, they are a great sounding earbud. Granted, they do not sound as good as my ath700 headphones but those aren't exactly portable lol (I'd look ridiculous walking around with a giant purple and gold headset on)

yeah they are amazing for the price! I keep looking to upgrade from them but I can't seem to find a set of headphones which would be a significant upgrade without spending $400+ so its not worth it to me.

I'd like to toss out there Shure SE215's I just got a set and they are very comfortable and have extremely clean sound. I wasn't sure what I wanted when I was looking and was recommended these, and I am very pleased with them.

OK, so now it's between the S4 and the SE215. Does anyone know if there's a major winner between those two? and what would be the differences.

Thanks again.

Both have entirely different sound signatures.

What's your music taste?

Also, which country are you from?
The difference between in-ear canalphones and earbuds are that earbuds sit on the outside of the earcanal and isolate much less than in-ear canalphones. There are good products of both. If you are out and about, in-ear canalphones are much more practical.
