stingwray Posted February 24, 2009 Share Posted February 24, 2009 So my standard iPod headphones have seen better days, people have been telling me to upgrade for as long as I've had them and I'm finally getting sick of the amount of noise they let in on the daily commute, making me have my volume up at 95% and so killing my already slightly worse hearing. I'm looking for a pair of In-ear Noise Isolating Headphones and ideally I don't want to be spending more than £50 on them although if someone can suggest something radically better for a bit more money then I'll consider them, but lets not get silly here. The short list at the moment consists of: Philips SHE9800 Shure SE102 JAYS s-JAYS Apple In-Ear Headphones I can get any of them for under £50 and most reviews seem to be giving them all >7/10 but obviously I want the best. The Shures seem to come out best from some review houses and the rest of the time the Philips do, with the JAYS coming consistently third and the Apple fourth. I really only included the Apple for completeness, I don't need the microphone (its an iPod Clasic 80GB I'm using) and I don't think I can even make use of the volume clicker. So does anybody have any experience, ideas, suggestions on how to choose, what to choose or what to even consider? In short, I'm looking for good noise isolation (so I can get run over crossing the road), good sound reproduction and comfort given that I'll probably be wearing them for ~2 hours most days. Ta.
