    JVC marshmallows are great, they go from £10 to a bit more online, better value than in store.
    Otherwise, the Sennheiser CX 300s or 500s.

    JVC Gumy headphones! They're about £9.99 from HMV or can probably be bought online. I've had my pink ones for over 2 years now and they're still going strong with not a crackle in the sound really good sound quality too. x
    You can get them for £5 in Asda

    Get them from Amazon - about £14

    Very good earphones - only issue with them is that they can make some sort of thumping/bustling noises when you are running or walking and have the wire sort of dangling. However this is an issue with most in-earphones. They are still brilliant imo, very light, comfy and good sound.

    Not sure what the beef is with Skullcandy here. I got myself a pair of Ink'd earbuds and they're ****ing amazing, hands down. Great bass response, hearing so many frequencies which you don't get with regular earphones. Great purchase, and they're cheap as chips!

    JVC Marshmallows are brilliant for the price, much better than other headphones I've paid double/triple for (going off bass/overall sound quality and ambient noise filtering). They filter out ambient sound very well, the only thing I've ever heard when wearing them (other than music of course), is ambulance sirens.

    The bass is great too, and they last well.

    While I haven't tried every brand you really can not go wrong with them.

    Also, Currys/PC World is a great place to buy them, you get a year warranty on everything and don't even need a receipt if you can remember when you bought them.


    I've tried skullcandy in ear headphones which were almost double the price, the quality was no better. They were louder, but I'm not a fan of hearing aids anyway. They broke within a month because of the flimsy wiring, and I took very good care of them, so I can see why they get all the hate. Never buying them again

    ^ I bet you broke the end with the jack on, right? It's a common mistake made by Skullcandy noobs - you have to take real care of your headphones. I've had mine for over a year and they're perfect quality.
