I got a pair of skullcandy headphones they sound alright, but started going bad pretty quickly.
I can't use the audio enhancer because leaving the battery that it uses in causes the headphones to whine occasionally. The cord that it came with is already breaking and it only transmits sound when it is in EXACTLY the right position. I got them in the beginning of December.  :P
My last pair I had 2 years before they finally gave out, and that was with very heavy use.

What's my calc's name? Convert $37 to decimal. Look up that element in the periodic table. Then take the abbreviation of that element and you have it!
Look! A slime!    <(^.^)>

There are a couple of SkullCandy models around 50€ but I can't really recommend them as they tend to break easily :/

Yup, pretty much what I expected.
SkullCandy seems not to focus on durability that much... :/ Which is a bit sad as their sound quality actually is pretty good (at least at the beginning).

Now I use Vortex headphones at home and Electra when going out. Both vosted me $4 at the dollar store abd while the sound is not as good as expensive headphones, it's still very top notch, especially the Vortex ones. I am sure they will last 2-6 months max, but at $4 I just stocked up XD

I've got some cruddy earbuds that were so cheap they were given to me for free. They've lasted me over a year (with light use and rough storage of my bag) so I suppose I've got my moneys worth out of them. :P
I've also got some on-ear Sodrop 2 headphones from Ghostek which sound nice to me, but for some reason on were marked as over-ear on Amazon. It took my ears quite a while to adjust to this design, but it's acceptably comfortable even for long periods of time.

I have the same ones. Pretty nice for $4 headphones, if you're not going to play much with the wire.

A pair of Panasonic over ear headphones, some Galaxy S5 earbuds, a set of Logitech h800s, and some very terrible earbuds that are no name brand.

I wear whatever I can find first. Hopefully it works. If it does, then it's probably tangled up like crazy x.x

I've had the same pair of Sennheiser HD201 for about 8 years now and for a cheap set of entry-level headphones (I think they were £20 when I bought them), they definitely do a good job. Granted, I use my computer's built-in speakers most of the time (and for an iMac they're damn good), it's just when I record vocals that I plug in the headphones.

I'm looking for some sub-$200 IEMs that I can wear all day, has detachable cable, and either a neutral or V-shaped sound signature. Right now I'm considering the Pinnacle P1. Any other suggestions?

They'll be driven from an xDuoo x3, so anything with an impedance of up to 100 ohms should be fine. It'd be ideal if I could drive them form my phone or laptop without an amp, though.

ended up buying the Simgot EN700 Pro, I love them so far :D definitely an upgrade from the cheap sony IEMs I had before
driving them from a Sansa Clip+, might upgrade in the future.
