If you are a bit rough on your earphones might I suggest the "Beats by Dre" earphones (i.e. the in-ear bud type, not the over-the-head headphones). I've suggested them to a couple of friends who go through headphones quickly and the build quality is holding up well even after a year. They have a flat cable which I think aids the sturdiness a bit (and seems to have solved the dreaded "one-earphone-dead" problem.

They're a bit pricy but the sound quality is pretty good.

Ultimate ears are a pretty well known brand amongst the audiophiles about. Check out the headfi forums for more info. Personally i would pay a bit more and get these -

I think they were giving these out free not so long ago with subscriptions to one of the music mags. Unfortunately I cannot remember which...it might have been MusicTech. Not everyone's cup of tea obviously...but worth considering. :thumbsup:

Are these better quality then the apple earphones?

also I have trouble with the apple earphone staying in my ear do these one have that problem.
#12
If you are referring to the standard ones you get with the iPod then yes the difference will be very apparent. They come with different size ear pieces that should meet your needs with regard to fit.
#13
Ultimate Ears are one of the leading brands in professional in ear monitors - the things music artists and television production companies use to feed sound to themselves whilst performing. They have been around for years and years. Check out the Head-Fi forums for more banter about them. Voted hot

They're a bit pricey but the sound quality is pretty good.


Whatever you do DO NOT get beats. They're terrible headphones for the money. Build quality is bad, sound is even worse. Way too bass heavy and not a good sound. Most people who buy these have nothing to compare these to except their apple standards. At the lowend audiophile price-point they hold, they're terrible value for money, just a big marketing scam.

2 tin cans and a bit of string work better than most bundled earphones

The 220 have slightly punchier lows and very slightly better mids. Build quality is the same on both. The 170 are definitely better value at full price.

The brand itself is awesome. Used by many touring artists for on-stage monitoring...

Once I saw the name "JOHN PETRUCCI" associated with the UE-5 pro, I was totally convinced without reading any reviews

reviews for the METROFI series are ok....I guess you just get what you pay for and a tad bit more....

The SuperFi is better...and the TripleFi is better and better...until you reach the custom series and these are way pricey.....
they're on my wish list :)

Decided to give these a go

Thanks OP

Haven't read the reviews myself but I'm guessing some people review them as soon as they get them, but remember like all decent earphones they will need time to burn in before you hear them at their best. I have the UE 220's which are excellent (very good sound and great build quality) but they sounded terrible at first.

I'm all for a bargain but promoting counterfeit headphones? If your that sad to buy a fake pair why not save a tenner off that and buy a pair of cx300's or Klpisch ones off Amazon.
#24
Bought thank-you. :thumbsup:
#25
Finally! Something other than CX300's :D

Many thanks x

A million times yes.
#27
Ultimate ears, at this price, must be worth a bash.
I don't have any UE phones, but they are one brand I have def fancied trying.
At this price, I reckon they would be a decent gamble.
Somewhere to check out, maybe for reviews is Head-fi.

It's a seriously good forum surprisingly all about headphones.
I would have thought you'd find soemthing there...

i have tried about 6 different pairs of headphones, sennheiser, sony, bayerdynamic and now im using the metrofi 220, and have to say theyre the best ive had yet. great sound and solid build made by logitech. any of these headphones would be way better than apple's own.

whats wrong with cx300's? mine are fantastic, and whilst this sounds like a good price, i'm not tempted to buy them yet just because they are cheap. anyone else offer any comments of these over cx300's???
#32
Was tempted, but instead I decided to splash out on the Super Fi 4 (way too used to my old Shures which have now disintegrated after many years' use). £30 down from £80... bargain!
#33
Where did you get the superfi's?
#34
now £17.99
#35
Came in the post today, sound great, really deep and a nice warm sound. Much better than the several 99p fakes i've been using over the last months that break within a week or two. The only problem is they sent it in a huge A3 large box 3 inches deep. :thinking:

And it can be un-expired. They're £9.99 again.
#36
Mine came yesterday, same box, was huge which ment i had to get out of bed for the postman :thinking:

They're good, sound and look good but are so painful. I've tried each of the ear size things and every one of them is so uncomfortable, the buds feel like its made of plastic rather than rubber. Sure my ears will reshape eventually to let me use these comfortably though :roll:

Cheers OP
