    Hey WPC, What type & brand of headphones do you, guys use/prefer? Do you have a favorite brand of headphones? Is there a set of headphones you have your eyes on? Let's discuss headphones, WPC.

    I'm currently using an older Nokia bluetooth headset BH-503. I'm looking for a new bluetooth headset but nothing too expensive and comfortable. Any suggestions?

    I'm finding these headphones a bit uncomfortable lately, they hurt the ears after a while.

    My recommendation is for Sony MH1C IEMs. Cheap as chips at 15 but they have an MSRP of about 60. They are balanced through the highs to lows but the bass response is crazy low. By far the best headphones I've heard for years!

    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.

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

    Not cheap, but sound amazing.

    My full "cans" headphones are a set of Audio-Technica ATH-M50. They sound awesome, but they are bulky. I use them sometimes to listen to music on my phone, and also to play keyboard.

    The earbuds I use most often are a pair of Zagg Smartbuds. They sound really good, and the coating on the cord makes them super durable. They have the microphone inline for calls, but they are just more complicated than typical earbuds. The stock headphones that came with my Samsung Focus were actually fantastic sound quality, they just didn't hold up.

    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).

    AKG K240 MKII for my PC and Nokia purity in-ears for my Lumia 920.

    I want to get the AKG Q701 but not sure what I would do with my current ones. Also thinking about the Audio Technica ATH-M50

    The Medis is going back to the dealer in a while. It distorts on complex materials even with my NAIM Headline 2 amplifier.

    I'm not really an audiophile so I usually just stick with Sony headphones. For the price you are paying they usually have a great sound

    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?

    What type of music do you listen to & what the max amount of dollars are you willing to spend?

    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.
