    From 1993 to last year I had a pair of earphones that were amazing,but over time they were a mess of dust and dirt,the covers had to be changed every 2 years or so,and close to shorting out.In august of last year I bought those headphones thinking they would be as good as earphones,of course thay were different but they were around the same price,so I expected them to be the same.
    Last christmas and on my birthday I tried out some other ones,one at the same price but smaller which was too trebly,and one that was $30 more that louder but seemed to pick up a lot of hiss,even from CD.So I took both of them back,which is something I never do,I never return items,but I did`nt see the point in keeping them.
    They don`t even make the earphones I had anymore so I can`t buy that kind.
    Thanks to Eggwater for his suggestion.
    ELJ-if you heard the earphones I used to have you`d be amazed by the sound.

    What were they? What did they cost? I’m willing to pay to be enlightened. [img]images/smiles/converted/smile.gif[/img]

    As I said in my last post,they don`t make them anymore.They were Sony earphones,I don`t know what they were called,they cost me$44.95 in 1993.They had an amazing sound,the guitars would screach your ears off when you turned them loud,the drums were very clear,you would never miss a beat and bass lines were easy to follow.I don`t know if I will ever find anything like them again.

    Salamiguy, I have the same pair of Sony headphones you do. I think they’re great. Guess I don’t have as distinguishing of tastes in my headphones as you. [img]images/smiles/converted/wink.gif[/img]

    I guess the guitars are a bit muddy.
