hey guys,
i recently got a new ipod for my 16th bday (my older one went through the wash :cussing: ). I was wondering, does getting new headphones make that much of a difference? I mean, i know a lot of people spend 100 bucks or more getting new headphones or earbuds. I was thinking about purchasing new ones, but im hesistant. I think the quality is fine with the stock ipod ones, but what is the hype in getting new ones.. like bose?

Ipod headphones are crap compared to bose or any other highend earphones/earbuds.

Ipod headphones are horrible. They are overpriced crap. $100 is overpriced though.
Best bang for your buck, and WOW they're cheap in-ears.

skull candy ones are insanely nice.. but i personally wouldnt buy new ones cause i rarely use the headphones.. i just keep it in my car for tunes while i drive.

... you know you can turn up the maximum volume on your ipod right? its under settings -> volume limit

Personally I don't like buds. My favorite are the Sony ones that wrap around your ear and behind your head. They have the BEST sound out of any headphones I've ever tried on. They also last forever.

I have a set of JVC buds that have gone through the wash and have survived... just like they were new. But for sound quality, Sony or Bose is the way to go.

You'll cause yourself hearing loss. Another reason I don't like buds.
