    I have Sennheiser HD 201 headphones which I use with my laptop. I was given them as a birthday present a few years ago, they seem to be pretty good quality (but I'm no headphone expert!)

    Gonna let you in on a secret.

    I have the SE215 (got them for £45). Before those I had the JVC HAFX1X which cost like a quarter of the price (£8-12). I heard literally no difference in sound quality between the two.

    The only difference between is that the HAFX1X leak sound quite a bit, so you cant turn them up to max volume without everyone around you on the tube also getting an earful of death metal too (:lol:), but small price to pay for the c.£35 saving.

    JVC's Xtreme Xplosives are a top quality range of earphones. Mid range & treble are decent, and the bass is quite literally some of the best bass you will ever hear in earphones. Which is phenomenal given they cost £10 on average.

    Only problem I have is finding a pair of earphones where the cable lasts longer than 6 months (even the Se215 cable wore out in like 4 months. Now can only hear sound in one ear :/)
    Had them already imo they sound nothing alike imo the JVC's drown the music in bass the Shures just accentuate without drowning them, they're more nuanced. And the JVC's wire doesn't last for me lasted 6 months like yours, my Shures have lasted 2 years now, I'm finding them impossible to break :rofl: However I don't listen to Death Metal and certain genres did sound great on the JVC's nut the Shures sound great or at least very good on all

    Can you please post your headphone choice and what device you use it with and why you chose this particular headphone!

    Thanks all!

    For my headphones I use Sony MDR-XB950s with a VERY STRONG EQ on all of my devices, I use a Windows based workstation and a HTC One M9 : )

    Currently using a Focusrite Scarlett 2i2. I'll probably upgrade to something better if I end up getting the HD800s.

    Just realised my mistake, I have heard the Apple ear buds aren't too bad considering they come with the phone.

    Great for home use, but you can't use them out and about because of their open back design everyone will be able to hear what you are listening to. Also the 3m cable it the greatest thing ever.

    I thought the 553s were closed back, did you mean the 702s?

    I have the Audio-Technica ATH-M50X. They have amazing sound quality although if i wear them too long my head starts hurting and I get that ear pressure you get if you wear headphones too long - its probably just that they're clamping my head too much and need a stretch out, I've heard putting them on a box can stretch them out a bit.
