Discuss! Which do you music aficionados prefer? What are the pros and cons of each?
-Decent Sound Quality depending on headphones
-Usually Comes With MP3
-Great Sound Quality
-If you don't wanna hear anyone else, it's not practical
-Lose the Buds, you're Screwed
-Kinda Expensive for the best models (Cheapest models are 9.99)
-Only some brands have REALLY good sound quality
Both: Wires break after a while, leaving dead headphones (Moreso on Headbuds)
+ Great if you don't want to deal with large headphones
+ Perfect for simple useage when listening to an MP3 while jogging or something
- quality can be a crapshoot (A pair of Skullcandy earbuds I got for christmas broke three months later when the right earbud died. I bought a cheap pair of white sony earbuds, about a 1/3rd of the price of the Skullcandy buds, and the Sony buds have not broken yet even though they've gone through more abuse)
-sometimes have trouble sticking in your ears (one of my main problems)
+ Better overall sound quality
+ Don't rely on sticking in your ears to stay on (and tend to be more comfortable, too!)
+ don't break as easily
-bulkyness tends to get in the way if you're trying to do something active (like jogging)
- hair can get caught in the moving headband sometimes
- drowning out sound quality can be a little TOO good at times...
Headphones easily. I never go anywhere without my Bose headphones.
Buds are far worse for your ears, I only use them when I absolutely have to. As someone who already has hearing problems (long story short, nothing to do with headphones or earbuds) I don't want to make the problem worse.
Earphones. Tried buds - while the sound quality was fantastic I was worried about the long-term effects so I switched back to 'phones. Always found headphones impractical.
Headphones. For some reason I find earbuds annoying to wear.
I don't like those big over the ear headphones either though. My favorite are the ones that go behind your head rather than on top.
Buds. Phones were always to bulky for me
Both. Seriously, If someone gave a choice between beats or buds, I'd let them pick not caring if it was buds or beats.
i go for comfort. earbuds. less cumbersome to store.
Headphones. They're comfortable and easy to wear. Plus I love the sound quality.
I rarley listen when I'm outside the house so I really have no use for buds.
Headphones. Bought a digital headphone set from Sylvania at Big Lots for $8.00
Gorgeous sound, terrific for gaming and music, plus has rubber coated foam pads for comfort. Damn fine set.
So I just got my first pair of headphones, the over the head type. I'll see how they work when I get them, it's my first pair ever.
Perhaps I can weigh in on this discussion after that.
