So I sit at a desk from 7:30 - 4:30 M-F and listen to music all the day long. I am on my second pair of Kicker EB141's and love the sound, but they just stop working once they get about 8 months old. I dont mind spending around $40 for a pair of ear buds, but not getting Kicker's again. Any recommendations???

Do they have to be ear buds? If so I really liked the Bose ones I had. but I wore them so much at work that they would snap the wires right at the plug-in. after 4 pairs (all warrantied) I gave up. I have some Skullcandy ones now that seem to be a bit more rugged and still sound pretty damn good.

Bose $100

Skullcandy $70

If they dont have to be earbuds, I vote Bose. I know they're expensive but OMG they sound amazing.

Schaub, I have tryed out the Bose in the past and holy hell do they sound good. $100 is a lot to sollow, but I know they are worth the money. So you are happy with the Skullcandy? I am using the apple headphones right now until I pick a new pair out and the sound sucks and they are not comfortable at all and the cord is way too short.

Don't use Skullcandy...they're waaaayy overpriced and aren't that great sound-wise. I use the Klipsch S4 headphones and although they are a little pricey at $80 (you can find them for less on ebay) and for the price, they sound great. There's also the Klipsch S2 headphones, less expensive at $50 but still good sound.

I use the Bose AE2 over-the-ear headphones. They aren't noise canceling(but still muffle outside noise) so no need to replace batteries, great sound quality expected from Bose, and EXTREMELY comfortable.

I love my pair and highly recommend them!
