    Any suggestions? Some of you seem to be very tech-savy :cool: I don't want to spend $50, but don't want to spend $10...I want something reliable, to use at the gym and work. There is a LOT to choose from out there, and I've been going through newegg.com and amazon.com reviews. Even the expensive ones have bad reviews, so I'm not sure what to buy....:dontknow:

    I have tried a bunch of different buds over the years. I think the best I found were a set of low end Bose. Great quality and didn't break the bank.

    Sony earbuds or skullcandy earbuds are both good and cost about $20.

    Thanks for the suggestions, much appreciated! I'd like to buy a $200 pair of the Bose headphones that Dre advertises...but they're $200.

    No highs, no lows.....must be Bose. Overpriced, shit quality IMO. I just go with Skullcandy buds with the warranty from BestBuy for less than $30. Lots of rough use in dusty conditions and they've held up great (I use 'em primarily when I'm cutting the grass on the tractor for 5 hours at a shot).

    These are above what you said your price range is, but these bluetooth earphones are awesome, IMO. Got them for my birthday and I love them.

    For my needs they sound fine......my issue with them is that I don't find them very comfortable for long periods of listening.
