    So my ipod earphones broke yesterday and i was looking for some new ones. Ive found these philips shs 8000/00 .Are they any good?
    and another question: what does the impedance mean?

    I have never heard any Philips IEM's...
    Impedence is a hard thing to describe, even I'm not sure about the true meaning... Anything under 100Ω should be runable by an iPod, and the lower it is, the more sensitive it is? Never quite understood it... Anyway I would recommend some JVC Air cushions (If it isn't out of budget)

    The higher the Impedence, the more power is needed by the device to power the phones.

    Ah, I had a feeling it was something near that... Since higher impedence headphones need more power to drive higher volumes.
