    I was wondering if there is a good pair of headphones to use to get the ultimate sound quality. And offer durability.

    I use Skull Candy ear buds. There is better out there, but I am happy with them and I didn't spend a ton of money on them.

    I had some Ultimate Ears 5vi but my dog at them so now I'm back with my old Shure SE110's.

    Edit: I also have Sony XB30's for over the head.

    Don't know if I should get Buds or over the head headphones. How do the buds sound?

    Skullcandy earbuds (not the cheaper inked series.) They sound great and have a volume slider built into the chord. I have had mine for three years. Best 45 bucks I have spent in electronics.

    Ok, since there are two mentions of skull candy earbuds I will be trying them out. Well, I am on my way to Bestbuy aka "The Crack House."

    I alternate between the Bose Buds & Klipsch. My Shure are ok but Klipsch are better.

    I second the Klipsch. Been buying their speakers for years. In-ear Headset is great sound.

    For bluetooth, I also use the Motorola S9HD. Those are very good sound for my listening, not so good for people I'm talking to - and I often knock the rubber earpieces off and have had to order new ones for losing them. The controls are easy to use and remember. I would get them again, though, because I have worn them for over eight hours without discomfort and they're now cheaper. IF you wear glasses, they don't sit on the stems of glasses very well.

    I have some NuForce NE-700M in-ear monitors. The bass on them strikes me as probably stronger than reference, but they sound absolutely fantastic. The bass is well represented and I can hear things much lower in all of my songs than I've ever heard before. Everything else about them has matched or exceeded my expectations. I wouldn't say I'm an audiophile, but I think these are really good. Easily the best sound quality I've heard.

    I also hear that their lower-end in-ear monitors are really good, but I don't have personal experience.

    I use over the ear because I have tubes in my ears and the ear buds actually hurt.

    I used these and they were stolen. Second set is what I use now, but want something in the same style but better quality:

    I use beats. they are pretty sweet when i use them with my ipod or laptop, but with the bolt i usually listen to podcasts not music so i guess it doesn't make a huge difference.

    Another vote for Klipsch. I use their Image S4 earbuds. Comfortable with deeper bases than I've ever found with any other sub-$100 earbuds, and even outperforms most of those

    I use Shure SE 530 earbuds. They are about as good as it gets but they are pretty pricey at $500. Shure also makes cheaper models of those earbuds. Its going to depend on what you mean by "good" and how much you have to spend. I also like Klipsch products. When Paul Klipsch owned the company they put out outstanding products.

    If you really want the best I would take a look at those two brands and go with the best that you can afford.

    I have the Shure se 210s I think. And am pretty happy with them. I've had them for 3 1/2 years or so and have been very happy with their performance and durability. They've lasted through most of highschool and college if that's worth anything.

    are the shure's fitted for one's ear?

    Yes, they come with a couple of different size buds and they make different types of buds. They do require you to read up a bit to learn how to fit them to your ear and the hardest thing is to learn how to insert them properly. An improper insertion into the ear will leave you wondering why you bought them, but, after you've learned how to insert the buds correctly you'll wonder how anyone really listens to music without them.

    You will have to replace the buds ocassionally and you can buy extra buds in the various sizes and they aren't very expensive. When I say "buds" I'm referring to the foam material that fits over the end/speaker. The foam buds cushion the end and block out outside noise, they are GREAT when flying because they block out most of the aircraft noise.

    Thanks for the thread and info. I have been searching for a good pair of headphones for a while and I settled on purchasing the skullcandy set (on sale on Amazon). They are in my budget (college student) and I am looking forward to some nice sounding beats.
