I have had vmoda before these sound r bout the same. Vmoda had a slight edge over skull candy. I also go a set of kickers now with these I still say they have bout the same sound and clairity. It just depends on u. While I'm on bike r at work cheap one work fine for me. But when I'm working with friends mixing stuff I use my Dre set.

I have sure se-420 and highly recommend. You can find them on ebay cheaper than you can buy locally. I also agree with previous post that eventually the wire will up, which could be reason to buy less expensive pair. BUT once you try these, it will be hard to use lesser quality pair.

I got a pair of these in November of 09

just ordered my second pair. I expected them to last a few months, they still work, although the mold is kind of dirty now, and the wire shielding is falling apart.

Etymotic.. I love the foam plugs since they fit just like my normal earplugs and I can run the volume real low on the tunes and still hear everything.

Plus they don't have much that sticks out of the ears to get caught on the helmet.

My Shure SE310's recently developed a crack in their cord and I'm looking to replace them. I had bought a pair of Beats by Dre in ears and found them to be less than comfortable for long periods. They have a new model that wraps around the ear and I was wondering if anyone had experience with them. The new Shures they make look fat and bulky. Have any favorites? I prefer something with the foam inserts as the rubber ones tend to fall out.
I have the Beats by Dre, the rubber insert came off and got stuck deep in my ear and my wife had to take it out with a flashlight and tweezers. It sucked, I thought it went in deeper and was going to have to go to the hospital. Get the foam inserts for sure or the ipod type that are one piece.

I ended up getting some VModas and like them. They have the cloth lined cords and work out well.

I have the Beats that wrap around the ear. I wore them with my helmet and they hurt my ears.

Excellent information about headphones. My experience has not been good.

I have spent $450 on headphones so far, and I still have not found the perfect set. I am leaning towards purchasing a bluetooth helmet.

First, I purchased the Beats -- those are probably the worst for riding. They extend too far, and the helmet pulls them out as you try to place the helmet on your head. Also, since these headphones extend, the constant pressure from the helmet makes them uncomfortable. After awhile, the rubber ear plugs come off. Eventually, the rubber ear plugs will become lodged in your ear.

Since I loved the sound from the Beats, I decided to purchase the DiddyBeats. The Diddy's are much shorter. These headphones lasted a little while longer. After awhile, I experienced the same problems I had with the original Beats, the rubber ear plugs eventually separate from the headphone and become lodged in your ear.

I am a stubborn individual, and I recently purchased the new PowerBeats. These headphones wrap around your ears. The bass is PHENOMINAL! While attempting to put the helmet on, the headphones do not appear to be much of a problem. I am having an issue while removing the helmet, however. I am not sure these headphones will last very long.

Etymotic MC5. They're newly released. Neutral sound stage. Great noise isolation. Sticks out a little bit which may be an issue when donning a helmet. It's a great value under $100. I'm never going back to Shures.
