help buy some earmuff earphones!
    #3911247 - 03/13/05 02:06 PM (12 years, 9 months ago)

alright, here's my situation

I am buying a Creative - Nomad Zen Jukebox Xtra - 60GB and want to buy a solid set of earphones.

by set I mean 1 pair of earbuds and 1 pair of earmuffs.

does anybody have any recommendations for the earmuffs?  I want active noise cancelling if possible ( I think ) and have no idea what to look for.

HELP NEEDED!

When someone finally gives you a good suggestion, would you make sure the price isposted so I know what to get for myself? Heh.

I got sennheiser 590's and they kick ass. They're really comfortable and the sound quality is crystal clear. I hear grado has some really good headphones, but those things are so damned ugly.

i own a pair of sony mdr-ex 71... and i have to say they are by far the best pair of earplugs i have ever owned... they are so comfortable, have the highest quality bass you can get with earplugs, they don't slip out of the ears, i could not ask for more

Sony MDR-EX 71

Features:

    * Earbud headphones are closed type to reduce outside noise
    * Neodymium magnets for high power and low weight
    * Soft, silicon earbuds are washable, removable and replaceable; two sizes of earbuds included
    * 9 mm driver units for powerful sound
    * PET diaphragm extends bass and frequency range

as for earmuffs, i have never owned any so i can't help you out there...
