    I listen to the harder style rock (not really metal), some blues (like Kenny Wayne Shepard and Stevie Ray Vaughan), and like I said- a whole ton of podcasts. Some of those podcasts audio are not as great as you would think they would be.

    As for money, I would have a hard time dropping more then 40 dollar-ish on a set of headphones. I would LOVE to spend more, but I am cheapskate at heart and couldn't do it when I know it should be spent somewhere else.
    Here you go these my SONY MDRXB30EX Extra Bass in-ear headphones and they are great:

    Sony MDRXB30EX Extra Bass In-Ear Headphones - Black: Amazon.co.uk: Electronics

    Only 19.99 and I paid at least 37 for them!

    Speaking on Sony's, these are the ones that I use

    MDREX58VRED - nothing fancy just a volume control is all, really good sound, bass is not over the top, treble little high sometimes, mid range sound great

    Ooo I can get in on this topic, as I just recently purchased my first pair of decent head phones. I didn't want to go too overboard so I picked up a pair of SONY MDR-XB600. Definitely worth it. The bass really thumps and the high's don't get muddled out. Very clear and crisp when needed to be, but also boomy, when needed.wp_20131103_17_02_18_pro.jpg

    I use koss portapros. Punchy bass, great middles and comfortingly high range. But if you are looking for Bluetooth or NFC enabled, I have no idea.

    @snowmutt... Could you possibly try out the porta pros? Benn using them for almost a year and damn, It still is pretty good.

    Hi, I have same headphones and i haven't had opportunity to try those with any WP. Recently I am using HTC one x and the headphones work perfect. I am planing to switch to WP and waiting for new lumia 930. Will MDR-1RBT work with lumia 930 (or Lumia ICON as known in the states)?
    I have a set of Beats Pro's. To be honest, i don't think my 920 is powerful enough for them. Kind of wish Nokia whacked a headphone amp into their phones like HTC did with the 8X.

    Also got a set of Sony MDR-1RBT bluetooth headphones, which are very expensive, but sound awesome, and work well with WP. Only problem is i'm now soo used to not having wires, and being able to change tracks with my headphones, that my wired Beats Pro's seem very cumbersome.

    Whoa didn't realise the M50x is out. I've had the M50s on my wish list for the longest time but never got them. Definitely going to keep an eye out on these. If you get them would be awesome if you post back ;)

    Had been using the Skullcandy Inkd 2 for a year until it accidentally tore. And I am stuck with Nokia's default headphones that come with the 920. Sorry I forgot the model number.

    Bose Ae2w for at-work listening. A-Jays Five for commuting.
    Love them both really.

    Does anybody know how good or bad the JBL J33 is? I am really looking forward to getting a new pair of headphones but nothing as pricey as a pair of Beats. Something mid-range. I listen to a lot of dance and electronica so please suggest accordingly.

    Hmmm...while not as extensive, here's my list:

    - Nokia Coloud Pop (red), my super spare
    - Nokia Purity Cans (cyan), for both my T100 and Z Ultra
    - Skull Candy Titan (2012, Black + Chrome) for my 925
    - House of Marley Smile Jamaica, for my 8X
    Honorable mention is my Sony HBH-20 that allows me to plug in any headphones and go Bluetooth that way.

    The Marley headset goes great with my 8X. Funny enough I get full volume control when I plug in my Purity Cans into my Z Ultra. Love that. The cans I also use as my hands free at home.

    Ultimate Ears Triple-Fi 10 in ear Headphones. 3 independent, shielded, drivers per ear. Fantastic accuracy and bass. You don't want the Logitech version. You can tell the difference because the originals are a mettalic aqua color. Originally $400 got mine new on eBay for $200. Best headphones I've ever owned or heard by far. Forewarning though these ear buds are so efficient you will hurt your ears if you start listening with the volume maxed out.

    The two driver version is great as well and about 95% as good and far cheaper if $200 is out of your range. Will absolutely blow away any beats headphone in quality by a large measure! Not just opinion, these headsets are the real deal. Unfortunately Logitech owns them now and quality has gone down since the buyout. That is why I recomend the old model when it was actually made and engineered by ue/ultimate ears.

    Sennheiser Momentum for ear-cuppers, and Ultimate Ears Triple-Fi for in-ear use.

    Not cheap, but sound amazing.
    The founder of ue has opened another company and has made some big improvements on his old designs if you want me to get the info. The firemd of mine that turned me onto EU was in Florida and wanted his custom ue adjusted and retuned and the guy there added a couple of the new drivers and new wires. My friend says its a huge improvement on an already fantastic set of in ears.

    Huh. No Beat's hater/trolls arrived yet.....

    I use Beat's Tour 2's for when I'm out (and don't want to mess up my hair) and a couple different headphones at home. An old Fender branded headset for gaming, my Beat's Solo HD's for music, and an old Sony headphone that I use when producing music (rarely happens anymore).
    Don't hate beats. To each their own. The trolls as you call them are just fristrated that they get so much press while their are so many far superior headphones I the same price range or cheaper. I have come across many grandmas, family members looking at them as presents for kids. First thing I ask is does this person want the best headphones for the price range, or just a set of beats because their cool/their friends have them. If ots the second one I tell them to by a pair he/she will be happy. If its the first I recomend several other headsets.

    I am just now starting to look for an inexpensive set. I listen to enough music and podcasts that the ear buds things are just not cutting it. Seems Sony headphones are brought up a lot (Big Paddy smiles @ Sony props). Any other thoughts?
    Their studio headphones (designated by blue stripe are one of the best bang for you buck entry headphones you can get).
