    Im no audiophile, so im probably not a good source, but i currently use the skullcandy FIX, because they really never fall out of my head...that said, there are surely a lot better options...

    I rather like Sony In-Ear headphones, like these:



    Hard to say, though when we don't know the purpose of the headphones in question.

    Go and spurn that house down in New Orleans

    Price? In ear, on top of ear, or around ear (earmuff) style? Do you want them to block out noise or allow noise in?

    A good general recommendation is Koss's porta-pro (ksc75). They're about $25 and sound better than virtually everything else under $50, but they're on-ear clipons, which some people might not like.

    Stay away from the Dr. Dre headphones, anything Bose, and Skull Candy - those brands are more about image than quality, and while it's unfair to say their products are shit, it's quite accurate to say that they cost more than they're worth and you can get better for less money.

    I pretty much hated the skull candy earphones I got. They were shoddy in terms of sound quality, and cheap crap too; they fell apart from mild usage after about a week.

    Pretty much anything made by Sennheiser or Shure.

    I use the Sennheiser CX 150 , they cost around 20 Euros, and im pretty happy with the overall quality

    For that price you can buy: VSonic Gr06, Rock-it R-30, Sony MH1. If you want more recomendations you can ask in Head-fi or look at this thread in the same forum: http://www.head-fi.org/t/478568/mult...added-11-29-12

    I'm currently using AKG K 315 earphones. They've got a pretty good frequency range, are pretty loud (YAY HEARING LOSS), they've got a volume slider, and they were only £20.
