Since I've never really needed high quality headphones I wouldn't really know. For me I think that a lot of headphones sound similar if not the same for decent speakers.

Logitech has always been a solid brand for audio though course it probably doesn't even compare with the more expensive ones.

Quality is nice but I don't want to go ear death yet.
Listening to club music for 3+ hours is enough to really shout to my friends.

Higher quality headset doesn't mean higher sound volume.

You can't compare normal cheap crap headset(s)/headphones to headsets that feature 7.1 audio.

I have Bose QC3 headphones, I can't do around the ear headphones because they cause my head to feel pressure. The QC3 fit on the ear and the noise canceling is amazing! If you fly often or hate outside noise while listening I highly recommend! Plus they are not bulky like most high end headphones!

Yes I know that. I used to own 7.1 headsets but the debate was whether it was true.
I was mainly saying from what you can hear as in clarity even tho I have said stuff about volume after.

I am so happy that someone commented on the importance of "burn in".
This is probably the most important thing you can do to improve the sound quality of your headphones no matter what price range or quality they are. Also make sure to have a variety of music styles playing. From classical to metal and everything in between.
This also applies to all other audio components From mixers to speakers.

I have the Beats Studio Wireless, normally I wouldn't pay that much for headphones. But my brother had a friend that worked at Best Buy and was able to get them for almost half off. I haven't owned any headphones more expensive than $40 before so I can't compare them to anything, but I'm happy with the way they sound and keep out noise.

I buy cheap sony ear buds, They sound good,. I don't notice any fuzzy sounds, it sounds clear and good for me. I've purchased a few, not because they wear out or break.. I tend to lose them somehow, but at ten or so bucks, whatever. My only complaint is ear buds fall out when I'm doing anything other than walking or running, like shoving snow off my drive way.

I moved in with a room mate and I sometimes stay up late. I don't want to play a game or watch a movie at low volume. I put some money into a 140 sum dollars turtle beach headphones. Sounds good, I don't notice the 5.1 surround sound... but it sounds good, it's wireless, and most of all comfortable.

Don't get Beats of Skull Candy if you're looking for quality. Just stick with Sennheiser. That's all we ever use in video production.

Skull Candy and Beats are horrible headphones some will agree most will disagree. Good headphones Like Sennheiser depending on the model because some are very expensive (RS 180). If you prefer some Bass I would go with the Sony MDR1R which fetch you about the same price as Beats studio but with better quality (again all IMO) and my personal favorite that I own and use heavily are the Audio-Technica ATH-M50 and they are less than $200. I just love love love them!

Edit: Totally forgot about ear buds!! Monster iSport Immersions are very very good but with a hefty price tag ranging from $99-$199 but if you wanna stay with in a budget I recommend MEElectronics A151 with a $50 price tag but are well balanced also There are a couple of Sony and Bose ear buds that are just as good but for a bit of a higher price

Music sounds through my ears just about every minute of the day, so why not make it so that it sounds better? That's why I use [somewhat] expensive headphones. I'm pretty cheap, so I don't opt for the more expensive ones lol.

Whenever I'm not home, I use these.
And when I am home, I use these.
