    my ear buds just broke. i actually really liked them. they were v moda basic ear buds. good bass and other frequencies. so what are some good earbuds for under 50 bucks. i need a new pair. the ones i had were like 27 bucks but if there are alot better ones for 20 dollars more id rather go with the better ones.

    idk about anyone else here but i have boycotted sony because all my headphones seem to short out to only one side after only a year or so. I take care of my stuff but damn.... i had a pair of noise canceling sony headphones that cost about 100 bucks and the one side went out. WTF! had a pair of the travel speakers, one side went out... bought skull candies, had those for a long time. eventually i had to replace them because i broke one or something. was being cheap at the time and decided to give sony a try again... just recently... same f'ing thing... one side keeps shorting out on me. has anyone had trouble with this? I will no longer buy anything sony for audio. not gonna waste my money on them.

    I like the skull candy ear buds a lot.

    Not enough.
    x4. These buds rock better than most over priced headphones and you can pick some up for 16 bucks at target.

    They are seriously the best bang for your buck. Long lasting too. I'll add that the sound quality is great with great bass.

    the v modas i had which you can get for 20 bucks online blow the skull candies out of the water. the skulls sound sloppy to me and they break very easily.

    I own 3 pairs of the Premium V Moda earphones. They're usually $100 but I gotem on eBay for $50. They're freaking amazing. Way better than skull candy IMO. I had Bose in-ear earphones and the moda still outperformed them so I returned the Bose ones

    no idea about earbuds. all i know, is i switched to studio headphones about a year ago and that was a huge mistake. i use to have no problem using a $10 pair of headphones, now i can only use the $100 or higher models. once you hear how music is suppose to sound you cant go back to the cheap shit.

    these are the best under 60.

    Under 200 go with V-moda Vibes. I have them and they are awesome. Only $100. I tried Shure and a few other high end ones and they were too muddy in the bass and the v-moda give you a clean sound and great bass

    I've used the Skullcandy Smokin' Buds for 2 years snowboarding and running, but I believe the Skullcandy Full Metal Jackets have better sound quality. They're about $50.
