    I am thinking of getting a decent pair of headphones for use with my iPhone. Have been using a semi decent pair of Kipsch S4s after i dumped my apple earphones, just wanted something better quality and a friend suggested buying fullsized headphones.. Just wanted to see what kind of headphones do most people use here. Was assuming that i was gonna buy Beats but after a bit of research it seems they are overpriced and don't sound as good. Would like to know what headphones do you guys use.
    I Like the Sennheiser HD 650s(have good reviews and look great, would go with the iPhone)but don't want open headset. If you have any recommendations for me throw mention them, but i just mainly want to know what you people use and what are your opinions of that stuff. I am by no means a audiophile and have just a done a bit of research the past week.

    lol, actually tried looking for a similar thread couldn't find it, i guess was looking in the wrong place. Thanks for the link. Picture gallery of all places. But i guess that thread is for pics. I just wanted to know what opinions do people have about their set of headphones.

    I personally use the Beats Tours earbuds. I've had them a year and a half now and they've been pretty good to me.

    Shure E500 (current generation replacement is SE535). Have had them for probably 5 years now and I absolutely love them.

    I have both in ear (UE S4i) and Around the ear (Bose AE-2) headphone.

    In-ear headphone is great when you are in active and listen to music. I got pretty good deal on UE and equipped with Comply Foam tips, It is totally noise cancellation headphone.

    Around the ear Headphone is suitable for working in front of computer and need some privacy. I choose Bose AE-2 because my dad have QE-2 and I am kinda Bose fan since I was a kid! :D

    I've been just using the ones that come with the phone. I HATE the new style of headphones that go inside your ear, and I haven't found a pair of buds that have the same style and have a remote to control the phone's functions. Until then, I'll stay with the stock buds :rolleyes:

    Ultimate ears super.fi 3.
    Got them at a deeply discounted price.
    With comparable sound quality to much more expensive shure buds...
    Win? I think so.

    Apple in Ear, Meleectronics M35 and the crappy stock ones. Depending on the situation.

    I use the Sony MDR-J10. Cost me $5 at Wal-Greens and they've lasted for 3 years getting yanked on and sweat on them. The hooks prevent them from falling off when doing cardio.

    When I'm at home and on the phone, I use the stock earbuds with built-in mic.

    If I want a decent listening experience, I use the Bose AE2is. Very portable, extremely comfortable, decent noise isolation, decent sound. Got them in a twitter contest!

    Standard apple ear phones for gym, the rest of the time I use Beats Studios.

    I have Sennheiser CX 300-II, and they have really great sound and great bass, feels as a sub for crowd out! You can feel the bass in your ears really good, especially combined with an app called "Equalizer Pro" in "Bass Boost"-mode. And you never lost those rubber-plugs because they are sitting really really great at the speakers.

    My old ones were Shure SE102, and they didn't had such great bass as those Sennheiser I have now. Had also a bit trubble because they sometimes fell out of my ears (?) while running.
