skull candy - YUCK! How long have you had them? I've read and heard nothing but great reviews up until 4-5 months of owning them, then it all goes down hill.

I've had the Phillips SHE 9500's for a few months now and love them.

They fit perfect, they sound great and cancel out quite a bit of ambient/exterior noise for costing under $30. I got them at best buy and went back a week later to get a set for my g/f.

Pics? I've got your pics right here:

I've had them for a little over a month now, so they're still working great. If my skull candy headphones give out, I'll try the ones you recommended nydubber. I prefer around ear headphones though. I'll let you know how mine hold up!

By the way, THIS IS MY 666th POST!!!

Hahah, can you feel the evil?

I recently used the Vic Firth headphones previously described and didn's like them. They do not isolate enough sound for me. Maybe its just that I have big ears and they wouldnt fit :lol:

I use Extreme Isolation. Get them from ebay, or local music store (maybe). Not only do they protect your hearing well, listen to your favourite songs with them and you start hearing stuff you have never heard before, "the little things".

Really surprised me on sound quality haha :)

( I use the EX-29)

oh and skull candy, ^^^ buy those. :P

For all of you who said Vic Firth is the best: There's a difference!

I own both pairs of Vic Firth headphones. The ones designed for just dampening noises and the ones that work like headphones. The best way I have found to do it is buy the cheap, regular Vic Firth heaphones, and just run cheap iPod (or generic) ear buds underneath.

The problem with the powered vic firth cans are that:
1. They are not as comfortable
2. They actually block out less noise
3. You need a beefy headphone amp to power them

In many cases, my consumer source (-10dbV iPod) can not power them adequately

Plus you can use the earbuds you already own and like with my method.

I have been doing it that way for five years and my ears have thanked me
