    Head-Fi.org - Headphone forums and reviews for audiophiles

    This website is a great resource, you can look up reviews on any headphones, buds or headset you are considering.
    Personally, I prefer using Koss PortaPro's. Because they are "open" phones where you can hear everthing around you, they are safer for walking and when you talk into your phone, using the phone's mic, you can clearly hear your own voice. And their sound is fantastic for the money.

    I would like to recommend the Plantronics Backbeat GO 2 bluetooth headphones I just received yesterday. I was previously using the Novero Rockaway's for a few years but the quality was lacking, they started to fall apart and the Plantronics quality and more importantly to me, the sound quality is Stunning for bluetooth. I paid about $80 CAD on Amazon.

    If you can manage the price it will be one of the best decisions you ever made to get Bluetooth headphones. On the occasion that I forgot to charge them and I go back to my wired backups for use at the gym, the cabling drives me bananas!

    Cheers

    i love the Apple iPhone headset. a great value at $29 IMO. sleek, light, durable, high quality, good sound, inexpensive, with microphone/click button, and easily purchased and replaceable. and this is the only Apple product i've ever bought in my life!

    Apple EarPods with Remote and Mic - Apple Store (U.S.)

    they also have the in-ear version for $79 if you're into that -

    good luck!

    they work great for calls and music. however - don't expect the volume up/down feature to work because that is an Apple iPhone proprietary feature. otherwise - they are awesome!

    i hope those ear phones have a mic.
    even if it does not Nexus coes with 2 mics and quite efficiently picks up my voice in a call from guite a distance. " in my car from the co-driver seat" Really happy with what i got.

    yes the only problem is the volume adjustment on the music player which often gets stuck at 50% level dure to some software warning.

    happy listing to good musc.

    I've been using these ear buds. Cheap, loud, bass, flat cable to reduce the tornado of stupidness.

    No pair of earbuds I've ever tried fit my ears well. I gave up on went with Sony's MDR-10R headphones. They sound great and have an inline mic and control button for play/pause, calls, activating Google Now, etc. You should also look at something like the Sony SBH20B bluetooth adapter for using regular earbuds with a phone wirelessly.

    SoundBot SB240 wireless headphones are what I use with all my devices. I got tired of cables getting tangled and caught on stuff. Great sound quality, bass and battery life for only $20. Highly recommend them.

    Lately very few things are sounding halfway decent to me anymore (no, my ears didn't change). Wondering if anyone has a favorite Bluetooth speaker or speakers?

    *dusting off this slightly outdated thread* ...
    *coff, coff*

    I've got the Nexus 5 for two months now and yes, it came without headphones.
    I was using the headphones of my old SGS3, but they are way too muffled and the volume rocker for volume down doesn't work. I also can't start calls or pick up the phones with it.

    After being on the market for close to a year now, is there any earbud-headphone for the Nexus five that
    * sounds nice
    * has working volume up/down buttons
    * enables you to make a call or pick up when rung.
    ???

    TIA for any up to date tips
