^ Haha, yeah, it's a good song. I also recommend SAKURA DROPS, and songs off of her ULTRA BLUE album... Nod

Yeah, my dad was trying to order off of the skullcandy website, but it like, wouldn't let us choose our state or something? I'm not sure what the problem was exactly...but yeah. Sneeze So I guess I'll try back later. Tongue

I personally use XtremeMac FS1 High Definition earphones. It offers crisp vocals, and a great bass response (in case you need it).

It costs US$149.95

Here is their official website:

Yeah they work pretty well, but sound also varies depending on what sort of ear buds you use with the earphone. It comes with a variety in the pack. To get the most out of your earphones, I recommend the foam ear buds, top quality sound!

Also you don't have to buy from their official website. I bought mine of ebay for half its original price. Hunt around on ebay, I'm sure there are cheaper ones out there.

^ Ah yes, ebay is truly amazing Love

So wait, the little covering-thingys change the sound quality? I thought they were just for different ear sizes? Confused
I suppose I should look on ebay for those big skull candy ones to see if I can find 'em cheaper. Giggle

Yeah the little earbuds or "sleeves" can change the sound quality. The foam ones differ from the pre-installed rubberish ones. The only bad thing about the foam earbuds is that it gets worn out after about a dozen uses. But I just use the rubberish ones, cause the sound quality is still very good, compared to the iPod supplied earphones.

Expensive earphones are a waste of money.. well at least if you can't even hear the difference between 30-50$ earphones and 100+$ earphones.
If you can hear the difference then its still way to expensive

Sure, the XtremeMac earphones are expensive, but if you hunt around there is bound to be better deals. I bought mine for half price on ebay!

Speaking of ebay, I just had a look, and found a pair for only US$40!!!
I don't know if I can post links direct to ebay, so just type in 'xtrememac earphones' in the seach box in ebay.

I wouldnt say that expensive earphones are waste
of money...at least if you know what you are doing,
and if you are audiophile like me then it does matter if you have
expensive stuff or not.
But its a fact that if you cant hear a difference
between high-end equipment versus the supermarket stuff...
you might just as take what you have already and be happy with them

Think it about this way
if you have high-end amplifiers/ high-end two way speakers
or studio speakers etc
but you have a cheap headphones you wount get any better sound out from
them infact only you might get is lot worser sound then already you did have.
and Ai's releases arent 96/24hz so basically it doesnt matter. What kind of equipment
you have. But i would recomend Sennheiser or then Sony, they have has lots of good
midpriced headphones in these days (they have gotten better)
and koss does some good too....if you have an option go and listen for your self which feels good, since we cant define what is good for your hearing ne? Smile

Yeah kawai-no is right. We can only give you advice to a certain extent. At the end of the day, you will need to try out some headphones or something so you can see if i will suit you.

Hellou!

I somehow don't recommend you to use ipod earphones. No I'm not an anti-iPod, but I do know they have been proven to be really bad for your ears. Why? I don't have the exact reason for that. Lol, I've lost, broken many MANY times my earphones so I have tried many kinds Smile
(I'm just listing what I find not too expensive, sigh, I'm always broken because of food so ...)

- samsung : I find them really good, but that's only if you buy a mp3 player... I'm not sure if they sell it individually.
- Sony : I don't like it. Sometimes, there is just to much bass and the artist's voice is not clear.
- Gummy-bear : ahhh, the new trend. They just suck for me. I sometime hear the "scrtchh scrtchh", lol.
- Panasonic : Not so bad, but they always fall out from my ears >_<
- JVC? VCJ? hehee I always forget the combination : The sound is quite clear, but when I take them off, I have a bit of an ear-ache...which freaks me out.

head phone. I only have one. Which was given to me when I bought my cellphone. The brand is ... nvm I forgot and can't find it right now. But the problem with it is that I don't hear anything else but the music Giggle

It seems as if the skullcandy website is unavailable right now. Confused I checked ebay for the headphones I want, and I couldn't find the color I wanted, so I suppose I'll just check back now and then, or I could message the ebay seller (since it's a store). Smile
And generally, you will get higher quality with more pricey headphones. But not always, sometimes it's a total ripoff Mad So you have to shop around and just watch out I guess. Sneeze

@ Sonny
Wow, that's interesting, I didn't know that.
What about like, the kind of earbuds that don't go really into your ear, but like...kind of like the ones that come with the iPod. Those kind usually come with a small stretchy foamy-like cover for the earbuds' speaker area. I know I'm not being very clear...but I'm not sure how to explain it. They always fall off though, so I don't use them. But I was wondering if you knew if that affected the sound quality. Confused

@ soiia
I think it's JVC... Confused But I'm not sure either Tongue
Yeah, a few of my friends have used JVC ones that were like...gummy ones or something? Confused
I used the original iPod ones when I got my nano for about a year, before I realized they were so badly blown out I desperately needed new ones Laughing The newer iPod earbuds that came with my video iPod I used for about 6 months before they got water damage and lost their ability to play bass at all. Crying So I have new Sony earbuds, and they're ok. There wasn't much selection where I went...but they're not bad. And they're pretty Giggle

Well the earbuds come in different sizes (small, medium and large) so one is bound to fit. Its in-ear earphones, so it won't fall out easily. Also its very comfortable, I can wear them for half the day, and it feels great!

There isn't a great change in sound quality when you change the earbuds, but the sound is defiantly better than normal everyday earphones.

^ Oh I see. Well, good to know. Nod
The ones that actually go in your ear do sound a lot better...but I just don't find them very comfortable at all. No I don't know why...but I've always hated earplugs too. Sneeze
