    I made the stupid stupid mistake when I was driving today. I was resting a little bit at a gas station (I drive a motorscooter) and my headphones accidentally fell to the ground. I didn't notice it but I accidentally stepped back on one of them and cracked it. Still works, but it's only a matter of time.
    By the way it was Sennheiser CX400 headphones. I absolutely loved them. They fit REALLY well, had great noise isolation, and a good amount of bass for the small size (not too much, not too little).
    So what I want out of my next set is:
    Good noise cancellation (for eliminating wind noise driving at 70mph+ hopefully, I'm sure I have hearing loss from it)
    Good fit style like CX 400
    3-5 ft cord
    Microphone (optional)
    Good audio quality with some emphasis on bass, not too much

    It needs to be under $50 preferably. Please tell me ASAP so I can replace my headphones fast.

    another pair of CX400's?

    lol i got a pair of moshi earphones
    for $10 and they are surprisingly
    good for 1, a pretty unknown
    brand in terms of sound products
    and 2, for 10 bucks!

    Good fit and noise cancellation
    Above average, but nothing
    special in terms of bass boost
    or response....
    generally pretty good sound,
    and trust me, I'm a sound

    Skullcandy's? lol i had the ink'd ones, and they cancelled noise pretty good(idk at 70mph, but yeah) and they cost... between 30 and 40 dollars, and mine had a pause/play/skip/reverse button and a mic, as for the bass i think it was perfect, but its your opinion, but overall they were worth it, they broke on me though when i sat on them lmfao

    ... are you sure you want to block out sound while you are driving ? Are you even sure you want to listen to music while you are driving ? It's quite dangerous just to let you know...

    It is illegal to have headphones on/in your ear while driving as it is really dangerous.

    And I am pretty sure on a motorscooter it would make it even more dangerous.......

    Link to Moshi? I'd prolly get another CX400, except it's getting harder to find genuines. I got mine for $30 direct from Amazon several months ago.
    I've never used Ink'd before, so I might get it. The plain in-ears (no mic/remote) are $10 on Amazon, so it's not bad.
    You people obviously have never driven a motorcycle before. The amount you can hear at 70 mph is nil. The wind blasts so loud it's impossible. If I don't have SOMETHING in my ears, I will get permanent hearing damage. If I use earplugs, it does block out the wind, but the silence drives me insane, not keeping me mentally occupied.
    Most people I've seen on my college campus wear headphones when driving a motorcycle or whatever. Yes, wearing them in a car is a bad idea. But cars have stereos.

    Also, over the head won't work obviously. Helmet+OTH = fail.
    So anyone know some good noise cancelling under $50 or is that not an option?

    Try Nuforce NE-6.There only 39$. There probably the best earphones i have ever had. And skullcandy is just alot of money for sh*t earphones that look cool so dont buy them. These Nuforce are even better than some 150$+ earphones. THey also have NE-7M witch is the same thing but with a mic and volume control.I deffintly recommend these.
