In ear Headphones recommendations?
I use Shure e2c on planes and trains, but wouldn’t use them in a gym – I’d get a cheaper, more disposable pair.
Try these Senn CX300 from Play.com at Â£18: http://www.play.com/Electronics/Electronics/4-/880672/Sennheiser-CX-300-In-Ear-Headphones/Product.html?cm_mmc=Froogle-_-Electronics-_-Portable-_-Sennheiser%2BCX%2B300%2BIn-Ear%2BHeadphones%2B(Black)&source=5065&engine=froogle_electronics&keyword=Sennheiser+CX+300+In-Ear+Headphones+(Black)Posted 9 years agopistonbrokeMember
Been using Ultimate Ears Superfi 5’s for about a year, they’re amazing compared to standard or even Sony/Sennheiser ones. Much better range and isolation. Must admit I was a bit cheeky and tried the various options in the Apple shop and then bought on line for Â£100 compared to Â£160.Posted 9 years agoblaggersSubscriber
http://www.advancedmp3players.com are a good online supplier, I got a great deal on shure se420’s, se210’s seem good value on there as well. The sennheiser cx300’s only have a silicon cup type plug, where as the shures come with silicon and foam types (I found the foam type much better at cable noise isolation and comfort).Posted 9 years agopaulfMember
I found the CX300 disappointing as the wire came loose on 2 pairs within a year and they weren’t even used much. The second time Play refused to take them back. No wonder they are permanently on offer, they are not worth rrp.
Soundwise G3 – http://www.soundwise.co.uk/earphones/g3.shtml have far better sound quality (more bass and sharper treble) and have stood up to lots more abuse than the than the CX300 and for Â£26 inc free delivery its not the end of the world if they ever break.Posted 9 years ago-m-Member
I’ve had a couple of pairs of Shure ‘phones (the first set I lost… d’oh).
I find that the whole cable-over-the-ear thing works really well for me; if you use the little adjuster sleeve thing to tighten them up at the base of your skull they don’t move at all, making them really good to wear in the gym/whilst running. I use mine with the foam sleeves (as per blaggers) and they are both comfy to wear and excellent at sound isolation. I regularly fly long-haul on business and can wear my in-ear ‘phones in far greater comfort than any of the over the ear type. They also do a great job of sealing out background engine / cabin noise.
EDIT: Oh, the sound quality is good also 😉Posted 9 years ago
Yeah I want something that have a good quality sound as they are replacing my grado sr80, love them but they donÃt block any sound out when I listen to music at work 🙁Posted 9 years ago
