I am looking to Replace my V-moda in-ear headset because they do not work with iPhone 4 (the mic is working but the single button to start stop songs is not). Does anyone have recommendation for sub $200 headphones (preferably sub $150)?
The things that I looking for - crystal clear sound especially at high frequencies, and clear, distinctive, deep but NOT loud bass. Most in-ear headphones, including v-moda that I have "loud bass" or "powerful bass" as a sell point, and I wonder if there are good headphones without over-amplified bass.
Im not sure why they would bother with the "loud bass" or "powerful bass" considering that the cone inside of the headphones is too small to move any amount of air. Anyway, as for a response to your question, check out these:
Judging by reviews the apple headset is one of the worst possible there.
And while headphones are small, they seal the ear canal so that nearly all the power of the driver can be transferred to the ear. They do not have problem of bass being attenuated because air can go around the speakers as in most other headphones, this is why the in-ear headphones have huge bass. That's why I am asking this question, if there are in-ear sets that do not have this problem, and good in sound reproduction at trebles as well. I like in-ear headphones for their size, lightness, comfort of wearing, but I can not find high quality ones that sounded like good above ear headphones.
