I'm looking for a new set of earphones, preferably in-ear phones that are compatable with the iPhone (answer button & mic) but doesn't have tobe. I've had the Shure E2C's twice and loved them but ended up losing them twice. What's the best for $150 or under? Shure, V-Moda, Bose,Sennheiser, Beats by Dre, Bang & Olufsen??

If you care about your music and you have the money... do NOT stick with Apple headphones.. The difference in sound between a pair of Apple headphones and adecent pair of IEM's is amazing.

Thanks guys... I'm debating between Shure because I already how good they sound or Etymotics because I've read good reviews on them... leaning onEtymotics because it has the built-in mic.

etymotics tendentially have very light bass and an analytical sound signature...
since we're on nt and everyone listens to hip hop/ rap. haha

you're right, their new dual drivers are supposedly not bad.

I'm more of a rock dude, so bass wasn't a big deal to me. I'm very pleased with my Etymotic ER-6i's. No regret.

I dont understand the hate on Apple earbuds. They sound great to me. IDK maybe I need to test out some other brands

^ if you're talking about the stock Apple earphones, then you definitely need to try out other earphones. You'll be amazed at thedifference in clarity and quality.

iono i think the older skull candies with the bigger drives aren't that bad, they're my backup earbuds, but dont fit on iphone

for my iphone, i'm currently using sennheisen cx300's, and they work just great for giving good bass/treble and cancelling out noise...for 30$ onamazon.... my friend has em too and he loves em, i mean YEA there are BETTER headphones out there, but i am about 100% sure that for the price of thesenn's you wont regret it at all, promise

I love my Shure E2cs. I just need some new covers for them or whatever.
I was gonna get some etys a while back but lacking the bass I passed.

I was looking at some cans like some grados but amps and cords and etc. etc.
all so much trouble. but well worth it in the end.

invest in some good %*!#

I'd recommend the Sennheiser CX300's the or Creative EP-630's, but just about any IEMs from Sennheiser or Creative would be good quality.
Some brands to avoid would be Skullcandy and Apple. Skullcandys are horribly constructed and their quality is seriously lacking and Apples aren't muchbetter.
