    High Quality Headphones

    Hey.

    My iPod headphones have broken, so i am looking for some new ones. Never really thought too much of the sound quality or the volume, so i am looking for some new ones.

    Anyone got any they could recommend for a reasonable price? around £20?

    Buy iPod ones again! They are near awesome!
    Sennheiser / Sony headphones are good too

    Avoid Skullcandy by all costs they just incredibly baaadd!

    You're not going to get high quality headphones for £20

    I have brand new iPod headphones with the mic still stealed in the plastic... Got them with my Touch and never used them (got me some Bose :))

    Depending if you want inner ear or not
    Sennheiser CX 300-II

    Sound Magic PL30.

    Is it possible your iPod has a volume limit in place which could be bypassed?
    Efficient IEMs are most likely to address the inadequate volume issue without the addition of an amplifier.

    CX300 are around £20 and decent. Just make sure you get them directly from Amazon, Play.com, MyMemory or another trusted Sennheiser re-seller. Don't ever buy Sennheisers from eBay/Amazon Marksetplace/PlayTrade sellers as in 99% of cases, they're fake and will sound god-awful.

    Interesting. Just been reading reviews on this, and it seems to be a great set of headphones. Many people have compared this to the high end Shure ones. I do wonder though, how these compare to my Sennheisser CX500's.

    I picked up some UltimateEars MetroFi 220's for £18 from Play a while back. They're out of stock now, but if you can find some in your price range they're great earphones.

    Ill compare em to the bose ones i had. The bass honestly isnt as good but vocals is amazing and they are also louder which is a big + for me.

    I second the soundmagic pl30s. Great headphones for the price. Get them from pricethriller who are based in the UK. At least that way you know you will have them in a few days.

    Interesting. Will definitely look into them once my CX500's die!
