    i've singled out two headphones that i really like! One is the Bose AE2 and the other is the new Skullcandy Crusher. does somebody have them?? i mean the bose is supposedly better sounding but lacks bass, while the crusher has huge bass!! so, can anybody tell me which one provides more bang for the buck?? plus, do both their mics and in-line controls work with Windows Phones??? (I own a Lumia 620!)
    Thanks!

    According to the Bose website, their headphones do support windows phones.
    No mention on the Skullcandy's though. :/

    You really should look into other brand of headphones as both these companies have bad price:performance ratio. I recommend looking into Sennheisers, Panasonic HTF600, or this in gray Amazon.com : Philips SHL5605PP/28 CitiScape Downtown Headphones (Purple) (Old Version) : Electronics

    When I was researching for a headphones I came across Head fi.org. It is a good site with a lot of audiophile people on there who have a lot of experience with various headphones and give good feedback relative to particular genres of music and price ranges. That might be a good place to check out.

    I did a quick search and found some user reviews of those products:

    BoseAE2 audio headphones
    Skullcandy Crusher Headphones with Mic White, One Size

    Didn't see any mention how compatible any of them are with WP though.

    If you are looking in that price range, look at the Sony MDR 1RBT. I love mine, and they are fully compatible with WP8

    I did check headfi, the thing is that even after reading the reviews of the headphones side by side, there was absolutely no way i could make any proper comparisons. :) I wonder if anyone owns both of them. :P

    Ah that's fair enough :D I agree it was tough to come to a conclusion from those reviews. I couldn't really find that many reviews on them. Good luck on your headphone search. I know the feeling of going through some headphones and not being happy quite a few times along the way.

    I saw someone post about the Klipsch S4 (can't remember the exact model) and its compatibility with WP. I'm sure those are worth a look.

    Klipsch S4s supposedly sound great, but they're pretty fragile from what I've seen of my friends' usage.

    Think I'll just go to a store and try them one by one. Trouble is that i cant find a store which keeps the AE2s for trial. :/
