    I been listening with my mp3 players for years with just earbuds. Got a set of Skullcandy`s now which sound alright, but just put on my pc mic/headphone and this sounds much better. More bass, is what I want. The earbuds are good but I dont think they fit in my ears well enuf to produce good sound.
    My question is, what brand of lightweight headset works good with the IPhone and has good sound quality? Im using a bumper for protection on my phone so the headphone jack cant be too large or it wont get by the bumper to make a complete conection.

    1st what's your budget and there are a ton of threads that already answer this.. ;) there is also your preferences a audiophile is interested in purest truest sound. So they tend to hate Dre's a base heads is more likely to like them. best best look on Amazon and read there reviews.

    Go listen to a variety of headphones / earbuds with your music - let your ears decide.

    Keep in mind that "good sound quality" is extremely subjective. You mention you want better bass make sure you're very clear on that if that's something you want. Don't assume that everyone else's notion of "good sound quality" is the same as your own. My IEM's are excellent but wouldn't be suited for you.

    Also, always provide a budget. The more info you provide on what you're looking for the better the suggestions you'll get.

    Have to agree with this comment. There are so many factors to define "Good sound quality"

    A lot of people suggests Shure in-ear, but I don't like the characteristic of the Shure headphone. I prefer Bose or Shure but a lot of people said otherwise, Both of us are not wrong. It depends on your "Preferable characteristic" of headphone.

    i have been using the id america spark in ears, cost 55 bucks and sound pretty good, the build and design is very nice and you won't have problems using them with any cases. check them out they come in some interesting colors also.

    Where can this be done? Are there items available to clean said headphones before trying them out?

    I`m not looking to spend more than $50 on a set of headphones. I like good clear music but I want a little bass. The same bass my $50 SkullCandy earbuds dont seem to provide.
