I see Koss Portapro on-ear headphones were mentioned earlier. I just got some today--based on a recommendation I saw from supercurio (voodoo sound) in his twitter feed.

I am blown away over the great sound from these. To me, absolutely outstanding for the price ($40.77, Amazon). I have about six headphones and earbuds. None are audiophile, but I thought one of the buds and one of the on-ear were pretty good. They don't hold a candle to the Portapro!

They don't look elegant, but I couldn't care less. The sound is just super.

A vendor told me that sporta-pro (black, foldable) feature the same speaker elements as porta-pro. Upside is they come 10 euro cheaper.
I have a pair for my pc and quite like them. I can also recommend Koss, the plug.

I just bought Jays a-jays One + a week ago and I really enjoy them.

Sound is precise and good, the remote is simple but do what's needed (the Jays app is quite light to handle/tune the settings). Earphones are light, 5 sets of earplugs to math the smallest to the biggest ears

I also use sometimes my old Jabra Halo, which is quite good also, but when I connect it using BT, i usually have micro sound cuts for at least 3mins before everything is OK. And I hate it

Have you checked out the HTC RC-E190 flat cabled headset? It is HTC branded from Expansys and has remote controls which work well for music and calls with Desire. It is available on Amazon for £10.28 with free shipping too.

I'm using Nokia BH-503 Bluetooth Headsets. You can talk and hear music (not the same protocol). Music sounds great, talking is okay.
90% they work great, sometimes the Headset-Buttons only work after restarting my desire.
I just bought the same Headset again for 15€, it's worth that.

Jays ftw. Best value out there. Better than Beats by Dre in-ear series, and about 1/5th of the price.

sorry if this sounds like a dumb question but, as I have a ROM with beats, does it mean I need to use beats earphones to enable beats?

Anything but Beats. Overpriced and worthless.

U think so?

I think there are better options with the same price as AKG or Koss.
