Sennheisers rule. Good choice on that. However, I would strongly suggest you not go with the sony earbuds, as I know from experience that they aren't much better at all than the ipod whites. I would recommend spending at least 10 bucks if not 15 on a pair of earbuds. Your ears will thank you in the long run.

Are better earphones from sennheiser in that price range.

 

As for earbuds these are good but seems to be out of your price range by the looks of the price of the earbuds that you picked.

Koss has a pair of earphones that are a small bit better than the sennheisers and is even more affordable. They're call the PortaPro. (Not on Newegg)

the Koss PortaPro sounds 10 times better than the PX100 (to me)... sound appears different to each person because of the differences in the shape of your outer ears (pinnae) and middle ear length, etc...

 

to me, the PX100 sounds muffled, bland, and restrained... the PortaPro sounds a lot clearer, lively, much more clear and defined bass (that also seems to extend further), and also more comfortable...

 

I think the muffled impression might be because of the frequency response dip around the 3kHz mark: http://www.headphone.com/technical/product...pare+Headphones

 

as this is within the human's most sensitive frequency range, a dip here is quite bad, and is probably why I don't like them... conversely, some people don't like the PortaPro dip higher up (~6.5kHz)...

 

neither are a headSET though, if that's what you were looking for with the PC151

i was talking to my little cousin today, and he said he doesn't need his steelpad's since he doesn't play CS anymore. he told me that if i get him a cheap replacement with a mic, he'd give me steelpad's. i was thinking about getting him the logitech internet chat ones. http://www.amazon.com/Logitech-Internet-He...400&sr=1-10 they for like 10 or even less on ebay.

 

the creative ear canal one looks nice, but then i probably wont let anyone use them. plus my ears are virgins, i never had a canal set of headphones before, are they okay?

I have Westone UM2 in-ear monitors (IEM)... some people say they are the best headphones in the world... they're not cheap (~$270), but then they let me have the sound quality of my home system when out and about, and also better sound isolation than any closed-back or (lol) "noise-cancelling" rubbish...

 

a decent pair of IEMs can cost between $50 and $1000... so there is a lot of choice

Grado! Grado! Grado!

 

Oh wait, you want an integrated mic? Nevermind... :lol:

 

While very few people have heard of them, Grado has some of the finest headphones around and are highly regarded by the audiophile community. I've got their "entry level" SR60 headphones and they are completely [email protected]$$.

 

http://www.minidisco.com has afew models avaliable otherwise you have to go to your local hi-fi music store to find them.
