And I also haven't done that either. I was just pointing out that Bose has excellent customer service. My first pair happened to start having a random crackling noise, but it rarely happened. Maybe once every other week it would crackle, and only for a few minutes. I called and pointed out that even if I sent it in, their team could listen to it for weeks and possibly not hear the noise I was talking about, but they informed me that it didn't matter, they wouldn't inspect it regardless of why it was being sent in, and that it will be replaced no questions asked, every time. With the warranty resetting. Every time.

I just by skullkandies for 20 bucks. I always leave them places or forget them at home. So everytime I snowboard I need new ones. Paying 150 bucks would get expensive for an absent minded returd like meself
Design is pretty good. One thing about them is they are very comfortable. The ear parts aren't leather. They're made of a soft, i dont know what, kind of material. The headband has leather. The rest is plastic. Not really that fancy looking. Overall, pretty good headphones.
I'd say some kind of synthetic fabric.
That must be it then. I know the name of this stuff in Spanish. Im diggin it.
Supple, plush padding
Impeccable detail from DuoFol transducer
E.A.R. channels audio directly to the ear
Design inspired by Euro sport sedan interior
Sennheiser is a brand I trust in general. Their stuff is almost always top notch, from head phones to mics.
My Sennheiser headphones are falling apart, so I recently sent a letter to their headquarters as part of my new policy to politely complain and if possible return any malfunctioning products as a statement against the increasing standard of planned obsolescence in our consumer culture. I will report back if they actual give me a replacement.
Sennheisers fucking rule... I ride for very, very few products and I'd go out of my way to sing the praises of a tiny handful of them but Sennheisers are def one of them. I got the HD-280 headphones in high school and they lasted me literally eight years, including going to every single DJ gig I'd done up until about 2 months ago. I threw them around, DJed with them, basically treated them like shit, and they never broke. They actually STILL sound as good as they ever did, but one of my DJ friends broke the headband so they can't really be worn.
I just got these:
which are just as awesome, I'm hearing things in songs I didn't know were there. They're almost too loud with a good headphone amp, too.
I swear by the HD-280s. Those 25-1 II's sure are pretty though.
I love the 280's. They have great sound and comfort. They get more use than any other pair I own.
The 280s were never that comfortable for me. I'm still on team Sony for sub $100 cans.
I just got these wireless Pioneer SE-DIR800C for work. Connected to a Mac Pro via digital optical cable. They seem better for home theater use as they contain a lot of different surround sound settings. There's a Dolby Digital setting with a little reverb that sounds great with EDM music. Creates a fuller sound. The bass is there, but not as much as I would ideally like. That seems to be the norm with wireless headphones. I don't like the look, but they are comfortable.
I'm looking to pick up a pair of cheap earbuds, just something to travel with and use on a plane. Looking to spend $20-$30, and for something that can be found at Best Buy or a common store like that.
Anyone have any suggestions?
(seriously dude. music is your girlfriend....show her some love. at least get these)

Uh oh. Drew is part of the headphone burn-in cult.
Those don't look available somewhere where I can go pick them up today. That's a big part of this all.
I personally don't like earbuds for traveling because of all the excess noise that gets in.
i usually borrow Sennheisers from work, but they're going to be needed at the studio while I'm gone this week and i can't really afford to just buy a pair right away so I'm stuck with my buds for my ATP travels, GRRR
Bought some Sennheiser HD 280 Pro headphones just to see how good they are after the great reviews I've read on here and many other places. Returned them and re-bought my old Sony MDR-V6 within a week. The V6s just have that extra bass kick and fit much better over my ears. Look to be a bit better quality too.
Those Sonys are pretty cheap on Amazon...It's really time for me to own decent headphones. maybe I'll grab a pair of those soonish after ATP
I ended up buying some cheap Philips headphones SHL-1700, the sound good but they are not very comfortable...
Thinking about getting some studio/can style headphones but they need to have the mic/volume/song control...
