1 - Sennheiser CX 300
2 - Sennheiser MX 400/500
3 - CX 200 Street II

which is a good one
i am getting the cx 200 for 15 $ :P
i listen to metal and rock
use is extensive
a carry case will be helpful
i have used the mx 160 and mx 200
so if u can compare the sound to them it wil be great

I had to RMA my original pair once already. Right earbud developed a loud "whine" whenever a steady 13-14Khz frequency was played. Annoyed me very badly. Although they were fresh out of their 20hr burn in at 30-65% volume. (yea, I use varying volume amounts, starting from low to high in an effort to "gradually" break them in)

Its a new idea for me, I figure the membrane is like a stick.. its harder to break once its against your leg, but hold it up and slam it on your leg it breaks easier.

My way is in theory the "already against your leg" version. Anyway, the 2nd pair is holding on strong. 4 1/2 weeks so far and not a single issue.

I have a sansa fuze and I'm trying to find a good pair of full-sized headphones.

Has the OP been updated since 2007?

Also, which is better closed or open? Are open phones usually more expensive?

I just want to put in a good word for the JVC HA-FX33 "Marshmallow" my I bought a pair for my 13 y/o niece two years ago for the Nano I got here for xmas they lasted throug the Nano and with here iTouch (bought for here also, you do not argue with a teenage girl ) So after two years she needed a new pair and wanted the same Marshmallows .

Also note she has a 7 y/o sister and they lasted that long.

in a simplistic breakdown...open have better soundstage, closed have better isolation. what is best is a matter of preference.

Soundstage - The area between two speakers that appears to the listener to be occupied by sonic images. Like a real stage, a soundstage should have width, depth, and height.

The answer to that and a lot more questions is here in my sig. The Glossary For Newbies. Don't let the title of the thread insult you. I read posts everyday from people that have been here for a long time that could benefit from reading through it.

Okay, I have an issue. I live in Canada, which means that most of these recommendations are not available to me. So, for any Canadians here, got any recommendations for IEM's at $50 or less?

What sort of sound are you looking for? What sort of activity are the IEMs going to be used in? And how rough are do you expect to be on your equipment?

Looking for something good mostly for rock music. I want something that's clear and detailed, don't care too much for insane amounts of bass. I'll be using them mostly for listening in the car, and I don't expect to be very rough with them, though obviously i'd like something that will last.

If you're looking for headphones to use while driving, don't. Not only is it stupid, but Canada has distracted driver laws forbidding such practices. If you're going to be a passenger, then at $50 the best isolating IEMs are the meelectronics M11+ with biflanges. Though not on the same level as etymotic (out of your price range), they should provide enough isolation for car - or even airplane - use.

Yeah, i'll be a passenger, otherwise I would just be using speakers. I'll look into the M11's.

I just picked up the Sony MDR-E818LP recently at Target for $10. They even come in a nice wind up storage case. I replaced the earbuds from my Sansa as they were getting abused. When I sit at my PC at work (where I am right now), the cord would get caught on the chair's armrest and get pulled. I keep the mp3 player on the desk so I can pause it when people come up to ask me stuff. Otherwise I could stick it in my pocket. So I like the Sony because they do sound better, they're cheap enough, have the storage case and the wire is heavier duty and the whol thing is more durable. Plus it doesn't seem to catch the arm rest as much, the wire may be a little shorter so it doesn't hag down as far.
