Earbuds

Post by S7 KnightOwl on Thu Jan 07, 2016 8:38 pm

So I'm in the market for a new set of earbuds. I broke the pair that came with my HTC ONE M8. I'm looking to spend less than $150. Wired or Wireless I don't care either way but I want good sound quality with bass. I will be using these mostly for yard work, running, and listening to podcasts.

I use base level SkullCandy but they're only like $20 and nothing special.  That being said they work fine for yard work and house work and the sound quality is good.  I don't listen to a lot of music with lots of bass usually, so I'm not sure how they would handle that. They have a good selection of earbuds and I've used them for years because they're quality and have a good reputation from everyone I talk to.

I myself like the Klipsch S4's, but like Atrum have moved to headphones for the majority of my on the go listening.

I got these for my wife for Christmas. She works out so they are perfect,
http://www.yurbuds.com/en/in-the-ear/43inspire-200.html#/color-black

-They don't fall out because of the twist technology or something
-Not really gonna have the bass you're asking for, but if you essentially get the BOSE version of these then you'll be covered
-They are magnetized on the ends so when you are done you throw them behind your back and they magnetize together instead of having to stuff them in a shirt or pocket. Also that helps with the tangling during storage

I've had the klipsch s4's and they sound great unfortunately the left ear bud stopped working after a few years. Wireless earbuds I dont have but the jay liber blue bud x2's are awesome. http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B013HSW4SM/ref=mp_s_a_1_1?qid=1452264282&sr=8-1&pi=SX200_QL40&keywords=jaybird+x2&dpPl=1&dpID=31GFirLcFWL&ref=plSrch

Beats are all about the name in my honest opinion beats as a fashion statement. Overpriced and over bassed for decent headphones.

I heard beats where overpriced and just a name that's why I didn't just run out and buy a pair. I know I'm not going to get a ton of bass out of ear buds but I do want some bass.

Are there better headphones out there absolutely. I had a 100 dollar target gift card, I had a budget of 50 dollars and they had them for 129.99 so that's why I bought them. I was broke during the holidays but I like them. Theyre comfortable on the ears.

I have seen a few reviews on these and am currently leaning in their direction. I will most likely make my purchase this weekend.

Thanks for all the info everyone
