Default Wanna buy earphones

Hey guys,
as the title goes i am looking to purchase new earphones within the next week. the last two pairs i had where a shure210 which i thought was ok but it gave in quality wise after about a year..same for my Zune Premium Headphones v.2. I am looking for something no greater than $120. I listen to all types of music but mainly rap and hip hop so bass is pretty important, but also i don't want it to be overwhelming. I really don't know anything about earphones so I figured i would get some help from you guys over here.

Thanks

Yo, welcome to ABi...I been a one note member of late as everyone here knows...

Look very hard at the Panasonic HJE900. Search the forums for all the threads on those puppies.

I got em. I absolutely love them, with some minor flaws [cable too short, stock tips are meh, no hardshell carrying case].

Still, I stand by this - if you can only afford one pair of sub-100USD IEMs, its really hard to go wrong with these Panasonics.

cheers and good hunting,
-les

Yeah pretty much what lestatar said, and your other options are just not as good/just as good, the Hippo VB, Phonak PFE perfect bass, and it goes down hill from there.

lakeside: yeah, seems a recent development means bad luck for you. There are reports that Panasonic has withdrawn the HJE900s from the USA market...read this thread from here to the end...

If true, this sucks hugely.

FWIW, I actually think the price of that ebay link is kinda reasonable IMO for the quality of the Panas overall in every respect. I always say it here - I paid 80USD for mine and I am pretty sure I would be just as happy with them at twice the price.

It just sucks that you might be forced to...

Look at these links to try and find alternatives:
