    Hi, I don't know much about earphones, so sorry if I get things mixed up!



    Type: In ear or Ear buds, no ear covering phones.

    Budget: 20-30 Euros

    Musical preference: I listen to ALL types of music except really heavy rock.

    Headphones preference: I like bass (not too much), and I like it to be clear.

    Any other details: I don't want it too look too bland. I need it to look decent. I also want something that I can have in my pockets without getting ruined.

    I've been looking at skull candy and jvc marshmallows. Are there any other decent earphones?

    I would go with the CX300s if I were you.
    I personally hate SkullCandy.

    Lol. They're definitely not even CLOSE to that.

    I'm pretty sure that's more than CX500s.

    Hmm...Do the cx300's stay in your ear well? I've had trouble with apple in-ear earphones before. they never ever stayed in when walking around

    EDIT: I read reviews on amazon too. They say that the slightest breeze to the cord of the cx300s produces a wailing sound

    Wear them with the cord behind your ear, if you can. I don't know if the form factor of Sennheiser in-ears allow that, but on most IEMs it dramatically reduces, and even eliminates, microphonics.

    Ehh...Really hard to decide on one pair...

    I've narrowed my choices down:

    JVC Air Cushions
    JVC Marshmallows
    SkullCandy Smokin' Buds
    Sennheiser cx300/400

    I forgot to add. I need them for jogging too. I need them to stay in while jogging, and not make weird sounds because of the cord rubbing agaisnt me.
