    I'm looking for some earbuds because my standard iPod ones don't have much bass and they are low at sound. I want some suggestions. I don't want big ones because they make my ears burn. So earbuds/earphones that don't cost too much. Max 100$.
    EDIT: Any good ones under 700kr from here: http://store.apple.com/no/browse/home/shop_ipod/ipod_accessories/headphones?mco=Nzk4MTg5Ng ? If not some that are sold in Norway

    What do you think about the JVC Marshmallow? CNET says there's good..

    Yeah but I'm not really sure about the sound of that buds. I've heard that they're not that durable..

    I'm a definite audiophile.

    I have close to $3000 in headphones/IEMS/etc.

    I think the Radius Atomic Bass earbuds would be great for you.

    Great bass, not muddy, nice overall depth. And they're only $40.

    I have to admit that it's pretty impossible to get the perfect ones without trying a lot. But 3000$? Yeah I've heard about them, but couldn't find them in Norway..

    I thought that the Sony Sound Isolating ones are then most expensive(the ones with 99% sound isolation)

    Money spent doesn't mean anything. ZOMG I'm an audiophile, I've bought 100 pairs of iBuds and spent $3000 on them. Jk...

    anyways what I've heard the JVC mallows are awesome, the Air Cushions are a good upgrade (for under $40USD) and from what chung and I just talked about the soundmagic pl30's are doin good.

    EDIT: Although under $50 and under $100 are 2 different categories.
    As far as I know the Orpheus' are still on top.
