Ask The Readers: What Headphones Do You Use?

image from g-ecx.images-amazon.comAs you may have heard, Jimmy Iovine has been advocating for better headphones for MP3 players and better sounding music files in general. Thus, he's looking to put some high-end headphones on the market that capture the full-range of sound and deliver a richer audio experience to music fans. In a line of dialog with the NYT, Iovine critiqued Apple, saying that, “Those headphones that come with the iPod are only there to see if the iPod works.” I have a feeling that most of us are aware of this to some extent.

Through, it still makes me wince when I see people unknowingly buying those bright pink and blue earbuds at the checkout for 10$—those aren't headphones.

They play sound through them, but that's about all.

Personally, I've settled on some Koss PortaPro's for now. Had a pair of Sennheiser PX 100's before that, but I stepped on them and they broke.

What headphones do you use? Are low-end headphones — and MP3s — part of a wider problem that's damaging how fans experience music?
