    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

    Just got these in the mail earlier today. Wow. Sweet sounding headphones. Really crisp and clear sound. They have a nice soundstage feel to them. Everything well balanced. Bass is there but not overpowering. Been trying out all kinds of genres on these. If i could pick a word to describe these, i would say Versatile. The untz are there. Intrumental jazz (Miles Davis) sounds excellent. The classic rock is there. Songs heavy with reverb will blow you away. Very satisfied with the sound.

    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.

    Micro fleece? Synthetic fabric or soft rubber type stuff?

    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.

    HD 25's are supper common for Dj's. I don't say that as a diss I say that because thats how how awesome they are and what kinda of history they have.

    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?

    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.

    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...

    They are pretty much on par with the 280s, I just think they are a tiny bit flatter and much more comfortable.
