Are expensive headphones really that good?

I am fine right now using standard apple air buds, music sounds good, uncomfortable after a few hours but I usually never listen to music that long it doesnt worry me.

I know there are going to be people out there saying how bad bluetooth earphones are, but man, Jaybird Freedom 3 is the best one I've tried thus far. Very comfortable, sweatproof (great for workouts), long lasting battery, and two ways to put it on your ear (honeycomb cushion or ear loop.)
Jaybird Freedom 3

I found this after reading CES 2012 Engadget Distro. It's called Jabra Sport.
Haven't tried it, but it looks good.

If you are not a fan of bluetooth, then, why not go with bose comfort?

This is only because you haven't tried.

Try and upgrade to some basic Sennheisers and you will notice a world of difference. From the bottom of the bottomless pit where the Apple earphones belong, you'll get great bang for buck with a small upgrade. When you upgrade from high-end to higher-end, you don't get such great bang for buck.

Can you recommend some model numbers?
