Thanks.

If you want to match get the Bang&Olufsen form-2.. Will match your Macbook.

I picked them up in vegas apple store for $99. Probably to much money (paying for the name). But either Apple store will get the money or Wynn.. I figure I will leave with headphone so i can use them on JetBlue.

Sound is pretty good I like them. Also have a pair of AKG which sound a little better but a bit too bulky. About the same price.


Best thing to do is try them on and see which sounds best with the type of music you listen to.

Dunno if this helps you but I thought I would throw in a suggestion.

I have a pair of etymotic ER-6i in-ear phones and they rock the casbah. They are portable and light (bit filling :)).

Wow. Thanks everyone for your suggestions. I'll research them and see which ones to go with.

Thanks again.

I'm getting a MacBook soon and it's going to be my main computer. Do you need headphones because the speakers are that bad, or are you getting the headphones for reasons unknown to me?

Some people travel or use laptops in an environment where they need to use headphones.

Get some Shures (E2c for me) because they're block out noise real good so you can compute quieter in public. :cool:

i vote for Shure's as well, just don't get too caught up in the noise isolation, my girlfriend did on a plane one time with some carrie underwood song and it was really funny for me/embarrasing for her when i tapped her to shut up...

I'm in a similar position, waiting on my Macbook, and am hoping to get a fairly decent and comfy pair of headphones to go with it.

Has anyone any experience of bluetooth headphones?? Is it worth it? Or would i be better off spending my money on a wired pair??

I've been doing some research on the forum at www.head-fi.com. I suggest it -- it seems like a great resource.

Right now I'm leaning towards the Altec-Lansing iM716. These in-ear headphones, which retail for 200 and can be head for 120 elsewhere are strangely $70 at Amazon. Lots of people seem quite excited.
