Audéo perfect fit earphones. Think they were 120ish a year or so ago when I bought them. Absolutely love them.

This is a headphone question, doesnt really have anything to do with your phone.

'Klipsch image s4' are probably the highest recommended headphones i've seen.
Basically every audiophile forum recommends them as a best bang for your buck option.

I also recommend disabling beats audio while using them.

You should also try to use flac audio formats or at worst 320kbps mp3's.
flac is compressed but lossless audio, like a digital version of a cd.
if you want to play with flac, you are most likely going to need to buy power amp, for $5.

Uh, because both the Beats eq curve and Beats headphones suck. It's a marketing ploy. Get yourself some Shures, Grados, AKGs, Audio Technicas, or Beyerdynamics and you'll hear what music is supposed to sound like.

might i add westone 3's? definitely on the higher end, but they sound superb with or w/o beats processing. i prefer no beats, period.

i have older klipsch in-ears (no controls) which i really like. but right now my headphones of preference for the 1x are the phiaton ps20 bluetooth semi-in ears. they do have player control and a mike for use with phone calls. i like not having to worry about the headphones plugging into the phone and then accidentally ripping them out of the socket because i forgot i was connected and suddenly got up to do something. the phiatons have actually picked up some pretty decent reviews. might be worth taking a look.

I haven't had the pleasure of trying out a pair of westones, but I have heard good things about them. I use Shure E5C (dual driver) and se550 (triple driver) IEMs for my out and about listening, love them both.

These Klipsch are what I use and they are amazing, can't recommend them enough.

Uh, I'm a DJ and I know what good headphones sound like. I'm using a pair of manufacturer refurbished Diddy Beats that I bought thru Monster for $79.99 and they sound effing Amazing. All the other brands Metal mentioned are hella good too. Just my 2 cents, I figured with Beats Audio software why not try out the headphones of the same brand. Again just my humble opinion. To each his own.
