What's your favorite earphone/headphone (links appreciated)?
For earbuds definitely the Anker Soundbuds Slim, whatever the newest version is. And I got the Sony WH-1000mk3, it's pretty nice. The soundbuds sound great, fit great and are cheap enough to lose. If I could only own one ever I'd pick the soundbuds but they are really nice together as a duo.
For me important is a sound quality, comfort, isolation. I don't really care in bluetooth and noise canceling.
I tried these:
- V-Moda Crossfade M100 Over-Ear
- Sennheiser HD8
- Sennheiser Momentum 2.0 Apple
- Beyerdynamic DT 770 PRO
- Sennheiser HD 25
- Sennheiser HD 600
- Sennheiser HD 650
- Sennheiser IE80
- Sennheiser IE 800S
- Bose QC 35 II (I used them for 6 month but sold because sound quality is sucks)
- Sony Sony 1000XM2 Wireless
- Sennheiser Momentum Wireless
- AIAIAI TMA-2
- Audio-Technica ATH-M50x
And the winner is Sennheiser HD 25 Light with velour pads (I bought extra).
Sound quality: 8/10
Price: $130 + $20 for pads
Disadvantage is they have 3m cable which is too long.
For quite places I'm using AirPods.
I use headphones mainly for noise cancellation so therefore my vote goes to Bose QC 35 II. Additionally, I use it as ear cover if co-working AC gets too cold.
AirPods are my daily wear. When I travel or just want a good listening experience, I tend to fall back on an 8-year-old pair of Shure which are in-ear monitors (very little bass but music sounds as it was recorded and meant to be heard). I'm sure anything in their SE2xx, SE3xx, or SE4xx series would be great. I have never tried their wireless products though so ymmv.
