    So I've got a headset which works great for music at home but when I'm out and about I'm looking for a pair of reasonably cheap earphones that can have a similar effect. At the moment I use a logitech usb headset, so I was wondering what earphones should I get? (better than apple headphones, please and preferably in-ear rather than the ones that hang on the inner part of your ear).

    Any amazon links also appreciated, just want a decent pair of headphones that work well with all types of music, from rock and pop to heavy metal and dubstep etc

    I'm not sure, I'm willing to look at all price ranges since I'm pretty loaded with spare cash atm

    If you want really cheap ones that actually last for quite a long while then these are pretty good, I've had mine for 2 years and still going strong, but for something more expensive/of better quality I wouldn't have a clue

    These two sound great judging by the reviews. Which one do yo think would come on top since they are pretty similar?

    I see are there any types of music where SoundMAGIC comes on top in instead, is Audio technica also good for classical music?

    Couldn't find reviews for the audio technica I was getting, but there was another type of audio technicas which was much worse off in the review, I take it this doesn't influence the good one you linked to me on amazon?

    If so I think I'll order some audio technica's, they seem to be what I'm looking for
