Right I have £50 xmas money from a relative and was thinking of getting some headphones for my ipod/psp…

The options are…

Bose In Ear - £50 (from the states)


Shure e2c - £45 (from the bay)


Or I could get one of these two below with the Dunhill iPod Nano case…

Sennheiser CX300 - £20 (from the bay)


Sony MDR-EX71SL - £10 (from the bay)


Now i'm only going to be using these headphones for my tube journey to and from work so is it worth spending that extra £30 on the bose or the shure headphones…

Yep, I've got a pair, really good but take a bit of getting used to.

Once they're in I can basically hear nothing before I even turn the music on - but I'm a little hard of hearing anyhow.

stupid question but how thick are the bits that go in your ears? ive got my tragus' pierced (little nobbly bit of your ear) so theres a little ball inside my ear and normal earphones like the poxy i-pod ones fall out all the time because they're too chunky

You get 9 sets with the ec2's.

3 types all in 3 sizes - should be one that fits past the tragus piercing.

The sure ones are the bollocks , takes a while getting used to them as they are very obtrusive but well worth persevering with Cool

shure e2c… so good i've lost 2 pairs and still bought them again. like murakami said, they take a little getting used to but bass response is top notch for an 'in the ear' headphones.

I've used these for a few years http://www.amazon.co.uk/Sennheiser-PX200-Black-Closed-Headphone/dp/B000089GN4/ref=sr_1_12?s=electronics&ie;=UTF8&qid;=1315733575&sr;=1-12

Very good imo, maybe check out the newer model http://www.amazon.co.uk/Sennheiser-PX-200-II-Foldable-Headphone/dp/B002VPDOHS/ref=dp_ob_title_ce

Over the head but pretty low profile so you won't look like a mug.

if you want pricey (and very good) ones, Bose.
