Headphone/Earphone recommendations

12 posts in this topic

Right I am looking to buy myself a new pair of headphones.

Been looking at the klipsh image s4, the beats by dre Tours and the beats by dre studio headphones.

I am open to either headphones or earphones. Been seeing alot of positives regarding the dre studios and reluctantly I would part with that much case for an excellent pair of headphones but part of me thinks when riding the bus/train with them on my head I will look like a complete tit. Hence why I have also been looking at the dre tours because the styling/design is nice and fairly unique.

Anyway what do you man say and would you rock the dre studio headphones out in public or think that anyone who does will look like a prick?

Also drop any alternatives you feel are worthy.

Cheers.

Seen loads of people with the Studios on the train etc

I have the Tours and if you don't mind in ear ear buds then they are amazing for sound quality. Pretty bass heavy too. They can be a bit fiddly though to fit or stay in your ear. If you buy them make sure you have the Sound Check On and Equalizer Off on your Ipod.

Shure earphones are very good sound wise too.

I'm pushing £7 sony in ears

I prefer them cos they block out externl sound, and you can feel the bass, just make sure you take them off for 5 minutes every hour or so if you're bamging bass heavy music, cant lt that pressure build up in ur ears

Like the look of Tours... doubt the Blackberry would do these headphones justice though.

I need a cable tidy if anything.

keep in mind, Tours are sh*t at cancelling out external noise. However when you are listening to music you won't notice anyway. You just need to crank up the volume.

Yeah for me it is between the tours and the studios. I am gonna go apple store and check the out.

Part of me feels the studios because they are versatile. Use them for music, djing, instruments, jaming at home and don't want to disturb anyone else with your music/porn you get the picture. Also audio quality is sick

But the mian reason I would use headphones is when I am out and about in london or on the way to work etc... Part of me is conscious that I will look a tit in them. But I guess loads of people wearing them nowadays.

The tours are easier to roll around with and pack up/stash when you are out and can go running/gym with them. Also cheaper.

So I am torn. I can't create a poll at the moment because out but cast your votes. Tours or studios?

Do they not come with different sized ear buds?

yeah they do but they will still fall out if you move around too much. Its one of their biggest failings - but they sound so good i'm willing to overlook it.

I've been dealing with CX300 II as a staple for a while now, need to change because using them with my BB the plug bent in my pocket resulting in a snap and then eventually sound loss in one headphone.
