“I used to work for Geek Squad, and I always saw people buying them and I tried so hard to explain that they break so easily and aren’t really that great, but no one would listen. They would usually be back in about 3-4 weeks with a broken pair of Beats..”
Great for Electronica, Rock, and Hip Hop-‘Pop’
Great for Rock, Classical. A smaller, over-the-ear headset!
Audio Technica M50X
‘Production’ headset-Great for studio use
Best fitting ear bud out there. Deep bass pop, great overall sound.
Grain Audio IEHP
Super clean earbud. Not overpowering bass, good for instrumentally driven music.
