    I'm going overseas soon and I'm in the market for some new headphones. I'm leaning towards the powerbeats 2 since they're bluetooth. Amazon has them for 149. Anyone have any feedback, advice, recommendations? Howard related because he'd love to suck Dr Dre's black cock.

    Beats headphones are overpriced crap. For traveling, I highly recommend the in-ear monitor type of headphones, or IEMs as they're known. They're like the earbuds you get with your smartphone but on steroids in terms of their sound performance. And most have the foam earpieces which make them both very comfortable and as a huge bonus, also block out a tremendous amount of ambient noise - much like earplugs - which makes them fantastic for air travel. As well, they are many times smaller than the over-ear headphones, so they're much easier to travel with. The better ones will probably cost twice as much as that Beats garbage, but you know what they say about buying quality and only crying once. Shure is a solid brand that I've personally had good luck with, but there are others.

    Any particular brand/model you'd recommend? I want them for travel and for running as well. As these usually pretty durable?

    I have these and love them. Got them for Christmas last year. Use them for working out, mowing the lawn, and some mornings when im cleaning the house. I love them. Excellent sound quality and very durable.

    you want the jaybirds....i run with em daily sweat like crazy and they still have held up. I also bought the best buy warranty just in case.
    I researched all signs were beats were overpriced junk.

    btw geek squad wont let you buy the warranty extension on beats....that tells me they know they break.

    6 hours on Bluetooth no way, none of them hold up to posted life.

    I normally buy cheap earbuds and use them until they short out or fall apart. I won a gopro camera at a work conference and sold it on ebay. I figured I would put the money into a decent pair since I'm deploying.

    I've had many pairs of headphones and I actually like the on the ear Beats Solo 2 the best and now, I'm not 16. They blow away the Bose and every other model I tested at Best Buy. No need to buy the bluetooth model as you can turn any pair of headphones into bluetooth for less than $20 with parts on ebay.

    I don't care if they were the worlds greatest headphones (they're not) and came with a free blowjob. I'm not supporting that shit.
