What kind of headphones do you use?

Sat Dec 14, 2019 3:06 am

I would like to know, what kind of headphones do you use?

I use the Mpow 059 in Pink. I am actually getting my cute cousin them in Rose Gold (which are pink/white instead of pink/black) for Christmas.

Kids bought me Airpods (white) for my birthday a little bit ago. I use Mpow D3 Bluetooth (black with red trim) when I work-out.

+1 for these. Lost my earbuds (probably in the taxi) and picked up a pair in SIN before a flight home. What a joy.

For working out and running I use JBL some or other bluetooth set (similar to the Mpow 3D posted elswhere here). They're good enough and don't fall out of my ears.

I found that bluetooth ones that connect the two ears with a wire is just better. I have a set of Jaybird Run. They're completely wireless. They're terrible. I mean, the sound is nice, but the two connect to each other and only one ear connect to the phone. That means one side has two radios, so the battery runs down faster. It also means that the two ears sometimes lose connection or go out of sync. They're absurdly sensitive to interference. They're also just buggy. Half the time when you press play, only one ear turns on. Then you have to press stop and press play again. At least they appear to be water resistant, so now I use them in the shower.

AirPods for my Apple devices. Cowin E7 Noise cancelling for my regular laptop. And I have some others for my office (I think they're Sony MDR ZX110s, but don't remember).

Nothing too fancy. AirPods are white; the other two are black.

I use the standard AKG earbuds that came with my Galaxy Note 10, and you know what? They sound pretty good! Sturdy build too, they've survived a lot of physical trauma and still sound as good as new.

Amazon echo buds. Were great but they hurt my ears as the fit wasn't the best for my ear shape. So I sent them back and am now using the Apple headphones that come with the phone. These (and by extension airpods) sound nothing like the Amazon buds, but at least they fit.

My ears and ear canals are not built right so I can not use any of those devices that go in the ear. I have to have ones that go over the ear. For my computer, my Sennheisers finally gave out. They were the greatest. Great range, they fit well, the cord length was excellent. I miss them. I have iLive for the computer. They are okay. I don't remember what Bluetooth head phones I use that are synced to my phone but they are over the ear and wrap behind the head. They get the job done. I can listen to music when I walk or jog.

On my flights to PR with my Mpow 059 headphones, I will probably listen to some holiday smooth jazz and maybe watch a movie (either from AA's streaming IFE or Tooth Fairy 2 on my phone). I will listen to my new smooth jazz tracks on my return and perhaps watch another movie. I do have an Anker aux cable to use it wired.

I tried the earbuds that came with my Iphone 8, but find them to be very uncomfortable to wear, painfull even.

You should get these. https://www.bang-olufsen.com/en/earphon ... y-e6-peony

Or these: https://www.bang-olufsen.com/en/headpho ... y-h8i-pink

I like my Bang & Olufsen H8i, but not in pink. I have small ear canals so none of the in ear stuff works for me very well. They are all too big, and painful to wear, or don’t go in my ear canal and fall out. When exercising they suck, hence the headphones.

There are two things that I refuse to invest more than $15 in: Sunglasses and headphones.

Regarding the former, as long as they're wrap-around style and polarized, good enough. If I throw my bookbag on top of them and break them, no big deal. Just get another pair at Walmart. In regard to the latter, I don't use portable devices to listen to music and only use headphones at home while on my desktop when everyone else is asleep. They cost $7 at a convenience store and have wires.

Now, if we're talking desktop speakers, then I'll pay a little more for a good system. My current desktop speakers are Logitech Z623's and they cost $100 a set (two desktop speakers and a powered subwoofer). Since I no longer have a sound system in my living room, I depend on my desktop for listening to music. Let's just say the sub has a history of rattling pictures off the walls. :D

Bose QC 15. Full ear cover, comfortable with excellent noise canceling. I can speak clearly to anyone with the headphones on by simply pulling the audio input jack (it’s big). I wouldn’t fly without them.
As for the crying child, a good pair of noise cancellers should nearly eliminate the engine drone allowing the child’s screams (or a drink request to an FA) to be heard.

It looks like those sexy cans are no longer available, with a bit of luck I hope that means they will release a full wireless version with noise cancelling.

Sony WH-1000XM2's... So nice. Likely will upgrade to the XM4's whenever they roll out and pass my XM2's to my other half...

Love them, though... Use them for drumming as well and work incredible for that, too. They get a lot of use!

Does anyone make a good baby crying/child screaming noise canceling system? Serious question.

A kindred spirit!

For earbuds I have been using Panasonic RP-HJE120-K for a few years now. Low price so I don't worry about them, sound great, and do a good job blocking annoying external sounds. Our OP woudl like them as well since they actually come in a range of colors (though I only go for the black) including his favorite!

For home headphones I have a pair of Sennheiser's I've had for years.

They certainly are here in Australia. I got mine about a month ago. Even the box they are packaged in is beautiful.

They aren’t noise cancelling but they do a good job of blocking out external sounds. One thing to note is that they are heavy headphones. I wouldn’t use them for travel, also they are too nice for that.

Use Bose or something else like that for travel.

As for sound, they do sound different from say Bose QC15, sound is clearer - particularly vocals. Listen to vocals from Freddie Mercury (Queen) or Bernard Fanning (Powderfinger) and you’ll notice it.

You can still get them here: https://klappav.com.au/products/pryma-headphones

I got mine from a local high-end audio store that is near where I live. They had another set of headphones on display at near AUD$3000! :eek: I didn't look to see what they were, but they were more than four times the price of these Sonus-Faber headphones.

If you prefer speakers instead, you can have a set of those: https://klappav.com.au/collections/floo ... da-speaker

At $160,000! :rotfl:
