I just use the standard apple earphone because I'm not really fond of most other earphones. I never usually leave the house without them.

I use earbuds often but only because they are easier to carry.

I must have 20 pairs of earbuds lying around from iPhones and Samsung phones or from getting them with accessories for stuff. The only thing I've ever had besides earbuds or those old headphones from back in the late 90s and early 2000s is I bought a pair of beats headphones during the summer last year but I ended up returning them. They worked great but spending so much to get just a little better quality was dumb.

I go for about $25 earbuds. I buy symphonized wood fire earbuds, they always last me at least 6 months each pair, great quality for me and no more then $30

I use over ear headphones and I currently have HD650s (modded), Fostex MK3s (modded), NAD Visio HP50s, Fidelio X1s and AKG712 Pros. Run them off a Schiit Asgard 2/Bifrost combo, a Bottlehead Crack or for portable my Fiio X5ii. Unfortunately the collection is definitely going to grow XD

Been eyeing up some Audioquest Nighthawks cause their sound signature is weird as **** and I love it.

I just buy cheap earbuds from Best Buy or wherever. Idk what brand they are lmao. I also use an SA-807 headset I bought on amazon for like 20 bucks. The mics shitty, but they're noise cancelling and the audio sounds decent.

Over-ear headphones are my favs. Not too much of a fan of on-ear headphones but will still prefer them over earbuds. Earbuds don't fit right and hurt my ears unless they're the Apple ones.

Been using Audiotechnica m50xs for about 2 years now. Love em. Before that I only used ear buds but now they just feel uncomfortable.

Honestly, even though ear buds are convenient, I have soon realized how fucking cheap they make everything today.

Paying $130 for a pair of ear buds that don't even last 1 year. Paid $90 for headphones that are still great sound quality and function for over 2 years.

If I wanted to get something to last my 5 years or more? Sony, or Bose. Bose might have better sound quality, but for the high price I think its fair.

I have a friend who had to use earbuds because his headphones broke (me: so long as they fit idc.) but now he REALLY hates them to the point where he would die then use earbuds again

I'd rather not use them but if I have to, either is fine. Although I can only use a few certain kind... the ones that don't separate sounds for each ear (like guitar is on the left and vocals on the right or something) cause I have a deaf ear and it's troublesome.

I usually keep a pair of old apple earphones in my pocket all the time since they're so light/easy to carry around.

If I want to properly listen to music or just drown out other noises and escape from everything for a while I have a pair of Bang and Olufsen H6 headphones that I would highly recommend

I got Sentey Arches GS-4730 to replace my Razer Megalodon. The mega wasn't very loud and if I put the volume too high it made my mic transmit something that made me sound like I was in a submarine. It hurts everyone's ears including mine but only heard in voice chats.

My current headset has a (I am told) very clear microphone (which has a light on the end to tell me its on actually) a "vibration unit" (subwoofer?) that occasionally tickles the spot under my earlobes and has really good volume, I can't really put my PC past 30 because it gets too uncomfortable.

I would like to have my next headset be a Tiamat 7.1, and preferably be the last thing from Razer I'd have. Their peripherals, while some good, are pretty dumb. Like their version of the PS4 controller, who'd want that?

I've been using the Ps Vita earbuds and honestly, they've been the only consistent ones in terms of sound.The only downsides with the pair is that I can't lie down with them. I use the apple earphones as my alternative for that.

Headphones that fit around the ears please.

My AKG K550s broke some months ago and I'm still rather sad. I """"""upgraded""""" to the K553s and am not as pleased. Though they were over $100 cheaper, so what can I expect?

I've been wondering about getting a decent pair of IEMs, but I don't follow them at all so I don't know what's good these days.

I'm probably going to start spending even more money on headphones. I want to experience the $400+ market.
