    best ear phone

    Sony E-888

    have been using this year phone for 7 years and it still rocks after so much abuse by me everyday

    still dun want to replace it because it is still the best i ever used.

    but the price not cheap, got mine at $90+ 7 years ago
    We are HDD of PC & FT are MB add to storage;

    Best headphone (but not too portable tho) : Sennheiser HD600. ~$700. Audiophile quality, better than almost any low-mid range speaker/hifi system.

    i highly recommend sennheiser man..... i got the sennheiser px200 foldable headphones and the sound quality is amazing

    doesn't cost as much as some of their high end headphones but the quality is good enough... won 5 awards it's only $99

    Can also try the Sennheiser MX-500 earphones.. reasonably price at below $35 and sounds pretty good.

    You can get the HD600 at $440. It's a great pair of audiophile headphones but for your travelling needs, a pair of sennheiser MX500 ($33) at Hung Brothers, SLS second storey ought to do the trick.

    If your budget is ard $200, the beyerdynamic DT770 Pro is great for bass-heavy music.

    As mentioned above, the E-888 is quite good but rather costly.

    Yep, that's the price I was quoted at Hung Brothers, I bet you can get it at an even cheaper price at Wailian first floor SLS but it was closed when I went over that day. If you have money to burn, I suggest the AKG-K1000 which retails for about $900.

    I don't think the HD570 is very good, go for the HD580 if you can still find it. I think it's much better.

    I heard great user comments about the Sony 7506 (also known as V6) which retails for slightly under $200. Go test it out, you might be impressed.

    i put my mp3 player in my pocket and wear the ear phones
    i will have to bend my head down abit
    if i straighten my body then canot liao, too short, the ear phone will fall off my ears

    unless u going to hand hold ur discman/mp3 player all the while or on a desk, this ear phone canot make it

    but the sound it produces is top notch! esp, with its price tag
