    I have a pair of V-Moda Bass Freq earbuds now and I love em, but gave em away to a friend (the cord was beginning to rip). Now I'm looking for some new earbuds. Should I re-buy the V-Moda's again, or should I go for the Sennheiser CX300?

    I listen to a lot of rap and hip-hop, so I want earbuds that has a ton of bass. The V-Moda's have that, but to be honest, they're kind of ugly.

    Does the CX-300's have a lot of bass? Which one should I get?

    I have a bad experience with V-Moda...

    I got them like, a YEAR AGO TODAY!

    Well, when i first got them, boy they were do awesome, theyre nice and small, very nice sound quality, anything you want in earphones.

    Then after a while i noticed that the left earphone was quieter than the other... it wasnt a big of a deal since i used the right one only, most of the time...

    Then like 2 weeks ago the RIGHT ONE just dies! I was so pissed! Gah! There were crap to me now... so i just bought cheap SkullCandy ones...

    EIGHTY DOLLARS for the DAMN V-MODA VIBE DOWN THE TOILET!

    But, it could be different, those are cheaper.

    CX300's seem to be a little more popular but I personally like the V-MODA earbuds. Do you know about SkullCandy headphones? They are my personal favorites. They have the Skullsmashers and the Smokin' Buds which are my favorite ones. You should think about getting SkullCandy headphones. One of the best brands out there

    I thought about it, but didn't think they were any good. Which one has better bass? I've seen them at Circuit City or Best Buy so might as well try them out and save money on shipping!

    You dont want too much bass! lol
    You have to have the right amount of bass/treble.

    I suggest getting a pair of Shure headphones or some Bose headphones.

    Skullcandy's look great, but they're not of the best quality.
