they are nice and stay in ear, but suck cuz they hurt my ears, i guess im being a wuss but anyone else know what im talking about? anyone that experiences this change to something else that doesnt bother your ears?
thanks for the suggestions guys im checkin into all of these except for thos $1k in ear headphones lol
ideally you have to try them on, cause they all fit a little differently, like boots, but in some cases non will fit well and you can actually get a pair molded for you if your serious about fit/quality
I can personally attest to the Sennheiser's audio quality. I started getting their stuff waaay back in the day when I was in high school from my father's audio supply catalogs (he owns a small hi-fi business) and they are outstanding. They don't come in fancy colors or anything like the Skullcandy, but the audio is top-notch, they are pretty much the only headphones I would be willing to pay a decent amount of money for.
alternately, if the helmet headphones just don't do it for you, you could do what I did and buy some bigger, better headphones and then take them apart and install them in your helmet earflaps yourself. It's not hard, just need a few things: sewing materials, headphones, wire cutters, and you can always add things like boxes for the drivers or extra volumes controls right where you want them.
I'd definitely reccomend some "noise-isolating" headphones for you.
Isolating, not cancelling.
Headphones that have ends like this:
I have 2 pairs, one of which came with my Sony Ericsson and it terms of in-ear quality for skiing I love it. Since it basically isolates your ear and plugs everything off your gonna hear some great bass plus it's pretty much as loud as it can get since the sound just bounces around.
Only downside is just muting isn't enough you gotta pull them out to really hear anything.
i used the ones that came with my ipod up until a few weeks ago, but they pretty much crapped out on me- they can no longer handle hardly any volume at all. i ordered some ear buds, just cuz they were pretty cheap. so far, i like how they actually stay in your ears, and the bass/ sound quality is pretty nice. not top of the line, by a long shot, but cheap, and quite functional.
