    So i am looking into buying new earphones that cost under $30 and has good quality and durability, because i have had my stock headphones for about a year and a half now, and the silicone is starting to tear up a little. Any suggestions?

    P.S. I thought the In-Ear iPod headphones were like $30, but there are $80 :0

    I DO NOT WANT Fasion headphones, but QUALITY.

    That website says that they are expensive expensive, But at best-buy they cost $35 dollars. Well, at the one near me. Where I got mine.

    If not, the smokin' buds. Because they are nice too. only $30.

    JVC marshmallows and JVC aircushions are very good for durability+SQ for price. Skullcandy aren't the best for durability, so I don't know why you guys vote for skullcandy when the OP bolded out the "Durability"

    I've had the Ink'd (black) and the Marshmallows (Blue). And I'd have to say the Ink'd are way better. Better bass by far.

    But is bass what everyone wants though? I find the inks have muddy bass. Some people might want good detail in their headphones, some want crystal clear highs. It's a matter of opinion and that there is no "best"
