Dont go mainstream brands like Bose, Beats, etc. You're just wasting your money to be honest. Ima recommend the V-Moda Crossfade LPs as they are closed-back(Great isolation), sexy as hell(seriously check em out), competitively priced($110-150) and most importantly, sound incredible.
Here's a link:

The mic is detachable as well so thats always a plus. It comes with two cables. One with volumes controls and another with a mic. Def check it out if you get a chance.

AND remember to use Poweramp with SRS enhancements when you listen to music. The 'Beats' audio is just a gimmick and marketing ploy. Doesnt bring anything but muddy bass to the table.

My $0.02. Hopefully this is informative.

Oh sorry I didnt see that if you mentioned it before. Um only two decent options.
Theres the Klipsch S4i. Its really really good for the price.
http://www.amazon.com/Klipsch-S4i-Pr...0547717&sr=1-9

Theres also the Bose you mentioned. They sound pretty good. Not overwhelming. Especially for that price.
http://www.amazon.com/Bose-326223-00...phone+with+mic

Id recommend going with the klipsch for now though.

Sorry but I just laugh when I see people using giant headphones outdoors. I just feel like sneaking up on you and seeing how I long I can walk right behind you before you notice.

Anyone know of any good earbuds under $50? the last time i spent money on headphones over $100 i ended up regretting it lol.

i'm no audiophile so i'm not loyal to any brands or anything. just as long as they sound decent.

NEVER get BEATS or BOSE. Both companies are like apple. Good marketing bad product. Also with the one x you have the option to use srs sound with poweramp. Use that. It's way better than beats enhancement and the sound is far better and sweeter.

I recommend the vmoda vibrato $130 (cheaper on ebay) They are built like tanks and are loved by the audiophile bass heads. They don't vibrate, but they have some of the best bass you can find in an earphone.

the klipsch s4i $70 (cheaper on ebay)

or the monster miles davis trumpets $270, if you have the money.

For under $50 you are best off with the klipsch s4.

bose headphones are completely overpriced garbage, the same as all there other products.
bose products tend to lack range and be VERY expensive, DO NOT EVER BUY BOSE.


Beats headphones tend to be overpriced garbage.
If you can get some monster turbine pro's for a really good price, then go for it.
I got monster turbine pro's for $130.
