I lost the headphones to my iPod Shuffle and need some replacements? Any suggestions?
Truly good headphones are hard to find for less than $20, but more importantly, what kind of headphones do you want? In-ear? Ear-bud? Can? Noise-canceling?
How much can you get the Koss Porta Pros for?
or there is always the koss KSC75
Check around as they can be priced anywhere from 9 USD (Radio Shack, sometimes) to 20 USD.
They also come with a lifetime guarantee so you'll only have to pay P&P to get a brand new set if they break.
For cheap, replace every couple of years, matching iPod phones, if you like in-ears, my rec would be Griffin earthumps / eartunes / whatever they're called now. They're nothing amazing, but they work nicely, they look good, and they're very cheap. You can get them new, shipped, through eBay for about $14.
I've enjoyed my ~$10 Sony MDR-E828s for a long time..
They fit me well, but my wife doesn't like 'em.
I think xUKHCx nailed it. I nabbed a pair of Koss KSC75's on sale when all the local Radio Shacks were layed to rest. I think I spent $7.99 CDN (around $7.25 USD or about 3 Quid). I can say with some confidence that they will best anything you can find up to the $40.00 mark.
In hind sight I should have cleaned the place out.
These are absolutely fantastic, and cost $19.99 most places.
JVC gumy dirt cheap, look good, sound good.
Refurb 512mb shuffle for 29.99. (when you can find them at apple store online)
Sell the shuffle for $32 on ebay minus phones.
Can't beat that, I did it twice to replace my headphones.
Heh. A sneaky way to get new iPod buds. Never thought of that.
Quite frankly, I don't think the Apple buds are all that bad really for what they are. I actually think they're a bit more involving than my recently acquired set of used Shure E2Cs, provided you're sitting in a quiet room, that is.
Whoa, hooking those up to a shuffle would be crazy! people would see them and be like, why are they listening to headphones without anything attached?
I have to admit, when I work, I have been known for having my iPod buds in my ears without anything attached, just so I can ignore people. and catch them when they talk about me thinking I can't hear them
Oh yeah aquajet, I have two brand new pairs of iPod buds still in wraps, new style too, just waiting for when I get my cord caught in a polishing motor again.
I seem to have missed that it was going on a shuffle. But that hasn't stopped me! Hahaha.
