So i lost my $25 Sennheiser 300B in-ear headphones somewhere and the ones that come with iphone hurt my ears if you use them over a long time. So suggest me some decent headphones. My criterias are ..
1. In ear design
2. Below $40 shipped + tax
3. Should not be pink in colour.


Suggest away!

The Bose in-ear set is really, really good. I've had them for over two years now, and I love them. I believe Razor has the same set as well. Great sound quality, and very comfortable. They may be more than your're willing to spend though.

You should just get the Heart Beats by Lady Gaga tongue.gif

EDIT: Duke, check out the Yamaha EPH-30s. They're pretty nice, and fit nicely in your price range.

Yeah, those were decent, but they broke after just over a year, and so I bought a pair of Altec Lansing Backbeat 106's on sale for $19.99 at Best Buy and they're better than the Boses I had.

Oh wow, yours broke. Mine are still going strong, and I recommend them to just about anyone that has the budget for them.

If you get some regular in ear ones that seal/ fit well then they serve the same as noise cancelling ones. In fact, if i can find another cheap pair of 300B i would more than happy. Great little headphones.

http://sellout.woot.com/Blog/ViewEntry.aspx?Id=6651(Maximo iM-490 iMetal Stereo Earphones) I bought these from woot awhile back. I actually really really like them, they sound great and they're pretty comfy. For the price, they can't be beat and they still occasionally popup from time to time.

Sennheiser would be lucky if I gave them the time of day, let alone my business, at this point. My pair fell apart after light use for only three months.

You seemed to have gotten a lemon. I used my Sennheisers for 2 yrs as travel set and I wasn't delicate with them either. They were flawless till I lost them. sad.gif

Am I the only one that doesn't like the in-ear style? I think my ears are not shaped the same so they seem uncomfortable. I usually have a difficult time with ear plugs when I'm blasting the firearms too.

^ 99% of the time I feel that way. I do like the way the Bose once fit though.

The sennheisers were my very first long term use in ear designed phones. Before that I used sharper image's noise cancelling cans but they were just too bulky and conspicuous in the office and to lug around in the bag pack.
