My main reason for not wanting the beats headphones is that I much prefer the small in ear ones - how do people carry these big bulky headphones around with them all day without either being super annoyed by their size or accidentally crushing them?

I like the 20-30 EUR in ear headphones like these but I am not brand loyal at all, right now I have Philips:

Nice and soft to work well for my ears, cancels enough noise but still can be worn while walking around outside (no car = lots of time in public transport) and cheap enough that I don't mind replacing them once a year after they inevitably break due to wear and tear

Rhianna's songs aren't even good. The lyrics are shit. Maybe it's the beats you guys like?

Good Day NY said Dre owns 25% of the company but, I mean, that's Good Day NY. Those guys are, as Chemda might say, "goobers".

The old iPhone headphones were made for alien ears. They would literally make my ears bleed and ache if I tried to use them for a day (I wear headphones ten to sixteen hours a day at work/commuting). I've been using cheapy $15-20 skullcandy headphones and they usually last about 3 months which I figure is worth the price.
I'd love to invest in a "nice" pair of $100-300 headphones but my problem is, with all the use, the first thing to go is always the plug that goes into the phone (gets bent, one bud goes mute, static etc) and id be super pissed to have that happen on a pair of non throwaways.
Any suggestions for noise cancelling ear buds?

Despite being hopelessly outnumbered, I put worth it on the poll because I don't think Apple would buy them if they were junk. Myself I don't understand putting a lot of money in headphones, I'd rather spend it on audio equipment or speakers. Like the snazzy surround sound speakers I bought for my computer.

I like Rihanna's music and she's a hot woman. Disturbia is a good example, but I did hear some autotune going on.

The trick is to buy them at best buy. Get insurance for $15. Mark your calendar and return em before insurance expires.

Good headphones really are worth the investment. Im a cheap bastard but was instantly glad I got em. If you can wear headphones at work, commute, or just wanna listen to podcasts all day / tune ppl out- bose are a must.

Also, the little headphone clip to shirt thing: its next level.

Solange / Chuy

Saw this in the Huffington Post today:
Standard Hotel Fires Employee Who Leaked Solange And Jay Z Fight Video

Regarding Chuy - I thought his porn past was old news? I'm almost sure Chelsea has mentioned this years ago. Unless he did porn AGAIN.

I've used Bose and they are good. Now I have Klipsch in-ear headphones I use. They're great. $120. Not noise canceling, but they seal in my ear well and comfortably and they have several tip sizes.
