I-pod Headphones

Afternoon all,

I'm after some new headphones for my i-pod. The other ones are rubbish and have come apart in under a year. I would like a good set of quality headphones that are hard wearing, can anyone recommend me some ???

Would recommend Shure headphones. About £80-£120, so quite expensive, but worth it.

These are very good. Excellent sound. Should be able to get them cheaper if you shop around...

What kind of thing are you after? (Open or closed? in ear or on ear?)

What is your budget?

Try here, many, many threads on the subject

Personally I like Sennheisers (PX100 open phones about £25, CX300 in ear about £35), if spending a bit more then Alessandro MS1 are excellent (about US$100 including shipping).

Sennheiser is indeed the way to go. Though I managed to destroy a pair as is my way. Caught them in the car door while still attached to the iPod in my pocket and discovered the shredded remnants only when I got home.

They're the Sennheiser300s aren't they. £16 from amazon, just got a pair and the music is sexy as hell. I'm hearing stuff I never knew existed. Not for the most hardened audiophile, but probably the best place to start for someone new to inner ear headphones.

I have some Sure E2C's...excellent sound quality. I just need to get them sent off to Sure as the wire casing has become fragile. 2 year warranty is good though.

TBH i dont know about a budget, i dont know what a decent pair of headphones cost. I know though because i'm going to be in hospital for a long time (6-8 weeks) that i want something comfortable. But none of this wrap around gayness. I want ones that pop in your ear.

I had 2 pairs of sennheiser's but they fell apart after 2 months both times. I've had to sacrifice sound quality for toughness, but the Sony MDR-ED21's I have now are comfy and solid as a rock.

In that case the Sennheiser CX300 or the Shures both mentioned earlier on this thread, both of these are 'in ear' and are noise isolating (handy in hospital if there are snorers in your ward). They both have decent sound, the Shure are better but more expensive.

If you go for the Senns make sure you get them from someone reputable as I have heard that there are many counterfeit ones on the market which sound awful.

Thanks for the advice guys, i think i'll go for the Senns as Nookie has had his a while and seem a decent price.
