Default looking for help buying new headphones

heya,
Im looking for a new in-ear headphoes as my left side of my beats tour headphones is not making any sound for some reason.

i really like those phones it has great bass and clearity,plus the non-tangling wire is cool.
(ive got mine a year and an half ago)

Im looking for an In ear headpones budget is around 150$(which is how much new tour headphones sells at)

im listening to metal so a good bass is important.

i've thougt about sennheiser ie 6 but they cost more then the tour and a year ago i've tried them with my cowon j3 and i did not get the impression they are as good as my beats tour

Hmm, I'm wondering if this post might be a provocation since I can't imagine how someone would prefer the bloated, muddy sound of the Beats Tour over the generally excellent and clear Sennheiser IE6?

Anyway, I would recommend for you to check out the JAYS a-JAYS Four. They cost much less than the Beats and offer pretty much exactly all the same features, with a slightly clearer sound to boot. Can't go wrong with them. They look pretty spiffy too.

If you listen to metal, none of the Beats are good choices. They're "tuned" for rap and hip-hop. They don't have the soundstage that you want for metal.

Turn down the volume when playing music. Your ears will thank you.

Otherwise, go for JVC HA-FX1X (Extreme Explosives series). Same signature as Beats Tour but for only 30$.

There is nothing special about a set that makes them for an ipad. Its marketing. And just because you have $150 doesn't mean you need to spend it all. These days there is a steep drop off in diminishing retrns after $80 IMHO.

I think what he meant was that his jays had a microphone. That last part was interesting, though.

Yeah, but the Michael wouldn't make it incompatible with anything else. That was my point.

I think you should consider getting a pair of headphones. Like the Sennheiser HD 280 pros.

For $150, you can get the Triple.fi 10. Sometimes, the TF10 goes on sale for $100.

That's interesting... I've heard that those Klipsch aren't too spectacular and never heard of the Yamaha before.

TF10 for sure or the IE8 if you raise your budget a bit...

Since you like the Beats (which is made by Monster), the Monster Turbine is probably a good option for you and the Turbine is even better than the Tour. The Turbine is better than the S4 also.
