    I've had the same pair of headphones for 8+years now.
    Sony MDR-XB500

    Thinkin about upgrading but very hard to make my mind up. These babies have been so good to me in terms of quality and durability.

    What kind of headphones are you guys rockin? And what are your opinions on a upgrade?

    I've probably spent over $1000 on headphones over the last 8 years... I recommend nothing, they never last.

    Been wearing Beats Studio wireless over the ears for the last 2 years. Sound is awesome! But they get hot as hell at times. I’ve had wireless Beats ear buds. They suck compared to the ones I just bought... got a set of Bose Soundsport wireless buds. Best ones I’ve had to date. They do have a cable connecting the two ear pieces. Which is fine. But Bose does have a totally wireless set for $199. Kind of wished I’d got those. Mine were $150 from amazon.

    Honestly they have these gummie headphones at Walmart for 10$ that bump really good and they've always worked good for me. Also the headphones that come with the Galaxy s8 bump great, and some Bose wireless are awesome, but very expensive.

    I've used august ep650's for awhile, the last pair I bought seem lower quality than the last but it could be my hearing :/ they are still really great though
     
  9. Wish i had that much disposable headphone money like Rockefeller here. :D

    Actually, my last pair cost me $7 and do a damn fine job.
    They're not built to last. No money in it for these companies if you only buy a single pair every 10 years.

    I agree with @Eman, they never last. So I use these for $8.

    For about 10 years straight is use nothing but those 99$ Bose in ear headphones. Sounded great. I'd buy a pair, save the box, reciept and 6 months later when they'd break id return them and say try were a gift and buy another pair. Finally they caught on lol. Last time I bought a pair of 20$ skull candy I believe and honestly sounded just as fucking good. Now they just broke after about a year. I'll probably just get the same thing or something very similar. Technology has advanced with electronic so well you don't really have to buy the best to be satisfied. As for Bluetooth headphones that's a different story. You're gonna have to shell out atleast a hundred to get a descen sounding pair.

    I have been using Philips SHS3200's for last 7 years and they sound nice and loud plus pretty cheap as I am hard on headphones. As I am leery of bringing my new iPhone 8 into the gym I use an old Sandisk Fuze+ player for my music which also means no distractions from a phone.

    Yeah for the price they're fine. Cheap enough to buy a few for different places so you don't have to carry the same pair everywhere
