  • New MP3 PLayer, crapper earbuds

    I inherited my sister's old MP3 player when she got a new one, the ear pieces are hard and uncomfortable, so i need a new pair.

    Anyone have a recommendation for a pair of earphones/buds that are comfortable and of decent quality. I'm not an audiophile so sound quality isn't the major issue. They need to be rugged and go for around 40$ or less.

    I'm opting for the Razer Moray, but I might as well brand the Razer logo on me since i already have enough of their products.

    Any ideas.

    I borrowed a friends pair of these: JBuds J3 Micro Atomic In-Ear Earphones while I awaited for my new set to arrive. They seemed good enough; decent sound quality (I prefer tons of bass for all the euphonium/tuba crap I listen to), they fit nicely in my ears also.

      if you can get a hold of a pair of skull candy's for 15 bucks or so.... you will be very pleased. Wal-mart had them forever, but i think staples and the like are your best bet now to get a pair. I have a 40.00 pair of Sony's that i love... and use for everyday stuff. I have a pair of shure's I would recommend, but i think even the e2c's are 100.00.

        If you want to be able to hear well in the future, get some headphones. In-ear headphones are really bad for your long-term hearing.

          I'd also recommend the JLAB JBuds J3 IEPs. You can find them at Amazon for around $30 with free shipping. Also comes with a nice carrying case, various sized tips, and I believe a microfiber cleaning cloth. Alternatively, the J2's are now $15 and are a decent upgrade from stock earbuds.

          If you're looking for something cheaper, the MEelectronics M9's are pretty decent: http://www.meelec.com/MEElectronics_...e-aim9-mee.htm. Here's a review of the M9's at Head-Fi. About halfway down the first post.

          I'd stay clear away from the $15 Skullcandy's recommended above. They're not worth the price in my opinion for slightly-better-than-stock sound quality.

            Not necessarily true. In fact, with the noise isolation properties of the in-canal speakers, you're able to listen at a lower volume, which is good for your long term hearing.

              I think he is referring to me being the typical teen that blasts their music so loud the neighbors can hear it. I'm not like that, i listen to music at levels that don't damage hearing, I'm the same way with my video games.
