    Hey y'all,

    My headphones are about to give up the ghost and will need to be replaced soon. Just thought I would ask for opinions here before I go buy the same thing over again. Any recommendations for something in a similar price range that might be better overall? I'm willing to consider spending up to €100, good, balanced sound quality is my #1, but design,comfort, and build quality also factor in. I really like having the in-line remote.

    I'm pretty happy with the Apple in-ears, to be honest. I think I'm on my third set...replace the annoying silicone earbuds with some old Sony ones I have, and I'm off. It's annoying that the tiny little speaker grilles come apart and (as far as I know) they can't be purchased separately, and eventually the wiring becomes problematic, but I get about two years of heavy use out of them, so I guess I can't complain too much...

    So, do I just buy another of what I already have, while (I think) you can still get them at the Apple Store, and before they start forcing Beats on us, and/or give up on the 1/8" jack altogether...or is there something else I should also look at?

    Thanks,

    Gary

    If you care about sound quality you should head over to the head-fi forum and read some of their reviews, very helpful.
