Get a pair of Sennheiser CX 275. I bought 3 pair a couple years ago and all of them still work. They do a great job at minimizing outside sound and have fantastic tonal quality for the cost.
If you want earphones: try this. I had the Sennheiser CX275S and it had 2 years of warranty. I had a small issue after about 1.5 years of usage and Sennheiser's service was simply out of the world. They gave me a replacement which was of a higher model that what i originally had because cx275s was not on stock then.
If you want to try some headphones, I have the Sony XB550AP and that is great too.
I don't know if I'm posting in the right thread, but here goes:
I have a pair of Motorola earphones (that came with my sister's phone so they're really cheap plasticy stuff) that have worked for 2-3 years for me, and I've never really wanted a better earphone set. The best thing about these is that they haven't broken yet. I never cleaned them, put them in a case, have always left them plugged into my phone. They've got tangled plenty of times, but sound just as good as they did on the first day of getting them.
But recently I was able to get some extra money (around 2000 Indian rupees) so I thought I might shop around for earphones.
What I want to know is, for my current budget is it worth spending money to "upgrade" my earphones or should I stay with the same earphones?
In my country (India) I don't think there's much choice except for Sennheisers as they're the only company here with good warranty. Most companies here won't give a damn and will force you to buy another earphones if they break, but Sennheiser's different. I had Sennheiser CX 180s before and they were better (as in more isolation, bit better sound quality) than my Motorola earphones that I'm using now, but broke after 10 months of use. Anyone know any ideas on how to prevent my earphones from breaking?
Here's my filled-out template:
Budget: 2000 Indian Rupees (around 31 USD)
Source: PC/HTC One M7
Requirements for isolation: If a bit of sound leaks out it's fine. I plan to use them for jogging outside as well as inside my home.
Preferred type of headphone: I guess IEMs? (bit of a noob to all this)
Preferred tonal balance: Neutral I guess.. not really sure about this. I listen to a lot of J-Pop and video game soundtracks, as well as some classical violin music.
Past headphones: Sennheiser CX180 Street II (broke after a few months)
Preferred music: J-pop, classical music, video game soundtracks
Location: India (city: Hyderabad)
Additionally, I'd prefer to buy from Amazon - here's the site (don't worry, it's in English!): http://www.amazon.in/headphones/b/ref=sd_allcat_sbc_tvelec_headphones?ie=UTF8&node=1388921031
P.S. Any thoughts on the Sennheiser CX275s? It's in my budget and it's by Sennheiser, so I'm heavily considering it.
Looking at the earphones I owned previously, the Sennheiser CX180, it looks like they're made for people that like bass, so I guess I'd probably like bass earphones.
What about the Rock Zircon?
I could also go the more mainstream route and pick out something locally, like the Sennheiser CX275s.
Location: India through Amazon or other online sites.
Looking for good vocals.
or any other suggestions will be valuable.
Looking at these two, Sennheiser CX 275 S (1.6K) and SoundMagic E10C (2.4K).
I think there was a sale for the SoundMagic. Reviews are good for both, am quite confused.
Used to have these. Lasted for a year, lost them recently. Was very happy with them.
Have used Sennheiser's CX180 too. Sounded good but felt fragile. Lightning sale for 699.
If you want a mic too then nothing beats CX275s though:
So, I'm looking to get a pair of In-Ear earbuds, and I've found two particular models that really appeal to me. The Sennheiser CX 275, and the ADV M4. Both seem well made, and seem to be quality gear for the price. Does anyone have any experience with either, and can help me decide between the two?
If anyone has any other suggestions, that would be most welcome! I do have a few criteria that must be met, however:
If you've got a better suggestion, that'd be great! Thank you!
I'm also considering the Sennheiser CX 275S. Any thoughts on how they compare to the 2.00G?
just looking at this. sennheiser at 1299. is this what you had in mind?
Sennheiser 275's! Technically above your price range but its a mobile headset so you can take calls on it. Sounds wonderful, the best headphones I've ever bought.
