My cheap framed headphones that I’ve been using since last summer packed in on Sunday (or rather stopped working on one side) so I’m on the lookout for a new pair. I’m looking for something that roughly matches the following:
- Costs no more than £20 (and preferably under £15)
- Must be available from a reputable UK retailer (i.e. not eBuyer)
- Has resonable/good sound quality
- Has a frame of some sort
The last point is key, since bud earphones like those that came with my iPod Mini don’t work with my ears. They only just stay in when I’m sat down – if I’m walking around, they constantly fall out. This has been a problem for me with any bud earphones and isn’t specific to the iPod ones. Therefore, I need a frame to hold the speakers in place.
Headphones with earclips are another option but in the past I’ve found these to be uncomfortable and require more effort to put on.
I’ve never been a fan of my ears – compared with the rest of my head they’re pretty large, and at school I occasionally got teased for it. If it were possible, and if I had more money than sense, I’d possibly consider having them re-shaped, but it’s not something I’m too bothered with right now.
So yeah, headphones recommendations please 🙂 .
