Default Recommendations on headphones?

Hi!! I got myself a s5 and I love how I can listen music with it through my ear buds and sport earbuds. but when I travel I want to hear better sound quality with headphones. I was thinking about getting sol republic headphones like the track ultra. also want the headphones to be able to use the buttons with it, not only call and end call like most headphones are because they are made for apple crap. please and thank you!

What do you mean buttons? Sol Republic's Track ultra's buttons are used for call and end call, though it also offers volume control and pause/resume/skip. Most headphones offer that though... Plus, do you have a budget and what kind of music do you listen most to?

Take a look to the Xiaomi Piston rev 2.

They sounds good, looks good, are cheap and the remote buttons works with Android. What else?

I think it's best if you can get them direct from their site, but since they have started to enter the international market, there site only has information, not too sure if you can contact them and buy online. there are too many fakes available online.

but if you live in china, hong kong, singapore and malaysia you are ok.

Default Le headphones

Here are a good pair (already discussed in this forum). There is a seller towards the bottom of the listings, Zhengnan'shop, that ships from China, but is the real deal. I don't have these headphones, but if I was on the market for some, I might. I still use a pair of crap ones that I have had for a few years. Might be time to upgrade soon!

Doesn't seem real to me, there is no harm in trying and nothing to lose, as the price is very cheap.

I just ordered 2 set of the mi earphones which is the if product design award version.

I just want to see the differences from this and the normal version.

I really like the SMS (Street) by 50 headphones as an alternative to Sol Republic and Beats by Dr. Dre myself.
