    Ok, now im actually quite sick to death of buying new earphones and headphones mainly cos they barley even last a month with me, its saddening that i have to keep throwing money at these objects.

    So can i have your opinions on the best quality headphones/earphones you have brought or just really good ones that you should reccomend ..

    Ruling out ;
    Dre Beats - Not in my price range .. maybe in a couple years tho
    Skull Candy - I dont like how they look ...

    Im thinking to get some WESC ones, but my decisions not final ...

    Help ?

    All answers will be greatly appreciated .. No trolling please

    First off both Dre beats headphones and skull candy are terrible sets of headphones. they add about 10 decibels of extra bass to your music while having incredibly inaccurate mids and highs.

    If all you want is a pair of headphones that go boom boom boom im a gangsta kid by all means get one of those but if you actually want to listen to music on them dont bother.

    I own a pair of sennheiser hd 555's and i definatly recommend them although they are probably out of your price range.

    Maybe go for one of sennheiser's cheaper headphones

    Sennheiser CX300.

    Bass is terrific. In ear therefore can't hear another annoying noises. Black or White.

    I have Sony MDR-EX500s which I absolutely love because they have a massive driver which means they're very good at sub bass. Which is great given that I'm mainly a drum n bass/hip-hop/electronica head. I think they were about £40 though.

    My Skullcandys were terrible sound quality and broke within two weeks.

    I highly recommend Sennheisers if you can get them. Great for a mid-price-range set of 'phones. :yy:
