Earphones


#1

I don’t think we’ve had this thread on the new board yet.

Anyway need some earphones, looking for durability over everything else as any I get seem to stop working in one ear/cut out frequencies or start playing up within about two weeks. I’m not a massive audiophile so I don’t need things that are mega expensive nessacarily, just wanna know what you use and are decent

Thanks!

what’s your budget?
how are they going to be used primarily?


#3

probably up to about £60/70 but ideally less than that.

I’ll be using them just when I’m out listening to Spotify on my phone. Casual use.


#4

Not a fan of earphones. Use headphones instead, AKG 550s. Cost me £90 but they sound good and have lasted me 3 years now, Need to change the ear cushions actually. But otherwise as good as new.


#5

I don’t know why I asked. I have no idea.


#6

wait - these ones are pretty good - and I think they cost about that.

they’re sony.


#7

Yeah see I’m not so much a fan of headphones - obviously the sound is better but I like things I can just put in my coat/jeans pocket when I’m done, probably more likely to lose headphones

Never had a problem with the Sennheiser CX range. Even the 1.00s are perfectly fine.

Yeah I guess I just do most my listening at home or on a train/bus journey. I also suffer from bad earwax build up so in ears are a no go. There are plenty of pretty fold upable headphones that fit snuggly in a pocket. My on the go headphones never last more the 6 months though so I stick to cheap stuff.

Had my SoundMagic earphones for about four years and they’re still great.


#11

Yeah they are an excellent brand for fairly inexpensive good quality earphones.
