My current pair have developed the dreaded “short at the jack” disease and I can either spend a lot of time trying to repair them or just replace them.
I prefer the models with the foam or rubber (silicone?) tips that fit snugly in the ear as they cancel sound pretty well and more importantly don’t irritate the outside or inside of my ears (the pre-packaged buds that came with my clip do both). I’d prefer isolation type buds to ones that let lots of sound in, but I realize you can only take that concept so far on a budget.
But I’m kind of at a loss as to whether I can get what I want for the twelve to fifteen bucks I’m willing to spend.
Not an audiophile by any means mostly becaue I listen to music not suited to it (garage rock and such) but I still would like to get a pair that can give me a full sound. Thoughts?
