    so a couple weeks ago i washed my skullcandy smokin' buds on accident

    they still work but they've been getting quieter and quieter every day

    so i need some new ones

    can anybody recommend some nice headphones (earbuds@@) for around ~30-70 dollars?

    they are in ear so they go mostly into your ear canal and they are mostly hidden
    earbuds just hang along the ear lube and don't create a seal and they tend to fall out on me
    going all the way into my ear they also seem to have deeper bass
    you can never have as much bass as full can old style ear phones though

    Yep, I agree, BUT he was asking for the $30-70 range lol. They're worth £100 in the UK, so around $150 in the US? Triple flange sleeves are pretty comfy.

    I've been trying out some sennheiser mx 85s. They look kinda funky, but they sound great.

    Get a pair of these: Sennheisers CX300
    I have the earphones and I personally think for $35 these are a big steal because of the superb sound quality they offer.

    No bass whatsoever.

    Was it just me or did these make you feel nauseous after a few minutes of wearing them. It gives a little ringing noise in your ears. I've never had any problems like that with other IEMs.
