I've only once had a pair of earbuds break on me. The left speaker stopped working. Every other pair just goes missing after a while. I lost my last pair in April and only replaced them over the weekend and it's so nice to have music again! I just buy $10 pairs of Sony earbuds each time I replace them so I don't mind doing it once a year or so. I'm not an audiophile in the slightest so I won't really notice the difference between a $50 set and my cheapie ones. :P

I know earbuds suck for sound quality... and I don't even have the better "in-ear" ones (I did for the last month and didn't use them much at all because they don't fit my ears xD)... but they're my favourite for ease of use, because I can still hear my surroundings with them, and they're easier to store than over/around-ear phones.

    I was tempted to get some Skullcandy headphones, but my friends say that the sound quality is not so great. That's why I got some usual Panasonic ones that still need to be opened.

    Legit, even I get confused as to who's posting in the B2W2 forums. It's ridiculous. D8


    Gurl you don't even know.

    Yeah.

    @Logiedan Everyone hates audiophiles. Don't be one of them. js

    Also, on unrelated news, Call Me Maybe is being blasted by a car right outside my window.

    I remember a study where they took self-proclaimed audiophiles and did a blind study where they had them listen to the same music through piano wire and through like $60-a-foot wire and they couldn't tell the difference.

    Skullcandy is an awesome brand for earphones. Sucks that they cost SO much though. DX

    What's an audiophile? o3o

    I have really good headphones, so they've survived being ripped out a lot. I also have put them in the microphone jack from time to time T_T

    Personally, I don't like earbuds cuz they hurt my ears and I feel like I can feel myself going deaf while using them

    @Jellicent(female symbol) It's getting really confusing haha. There was some thread where there were like 3 shizuis in a row and I was like lol what? Also, akuroma seems to be everywhere too...

    Wow, I've been incredibly ninja'd...

    Jellicent, an audiophile is a person who won't listen to the real world because it's not in .FLAC compression and will take up too much space on his state-of-the-art MP3 player through his $1000 New-Age experimental headphones that have...


    yeah just people who love sound too much.

    I think it comes from some sort of OCD or something because I personally like all my songs to be top-notch, even if I can't feel the difference.

    I have a nice pair of Sony headphones that have killer bass. Plus, Beats by Dr. Dre headphones are waaaay too overpriced.

    I jest about audiophiles but I do respect that some people can hear the difference in quality of audio that others can't. If they won't listen to anything that's not on vinyl because it sounds truest to the original master recording, fair enough. :P It's their money, they can spend it on whatever upgrades they need to listen happily to music.

    I am just thankful my ears don't pick up on those kinds of things. I mean, I can tell the difference between my $10 earbuds and my dad's $300 headphones but for casual listening, I'm absolutely fine with my crappy ones. I actually dislike better audio equipment sometimes since I'm so used to bad speakers and whatnot that hearing the extra nuances in songs from the better stuff throws me off a lot and I don't like it as much.

    But people gotta know that wearing Beats does not make you an instant Dr. Dre.

    Also, people who bother you and talk about sound quality obsessively when you wouldn't even care.

    Yeah, I can't really tell the difference in audio, so count me out of the audiophile club. However, I do think it's incredibly cool when you listen to a song and hear something you didn't notice before, like all the supporting music that's laying underneath the melody. Oftentimes it's more interesting than the singer's part or the melody. (Take I'll make a man out of you for instance)

    Jelli you're bad at actually having a conversation in the DCC, lol.

    Golurk I love doing that :3 Take a favorite song, ignore the lead guitar and the singer, and focus on the drums or the bass or something like that and it's practically like an entirely new song!

      Fix them if you can...depends on how bad they were. xD I remember doing the same when I was in high school.. twice. I couldn't wear them, so I was blind until I got a new pair. (like.. three weeks later lol) :(

      Tape the bridge together! That'll hold 'em for a bit!

      And things like that are why I have very the flexible Flexon frames now.

        I have a gigantic collection of free earbuds I steal off in all my bus/train trips XD They are like "free earbuds if you want to watch the movie!", and I always take a handful to have spares for the entire year XD

        I have some crappy Sony ones too. I don't like bringing expensive headphones around with me, so I just use in ear ones. I have some smexy Sennheiser DJ headphones at mine for when I am doing sound editing; best quality ever.

          Currently using these

          I don't mind them, so much, but they can make you stick out of a crowd like a sore thumb.
