Re: Earphones Finally Broke. Recommendations Pls!
I've used the Senn HD 280 pro for 4 1/2 years as my school headphone. Overall, I'd recommend getting away from earbuds/IEMs as I've never gotten a pair to last more than about 6 months. They're over-ear headphones, which are just more robust in my experience, and they fold and fit in my backpack just fine.
Also, just thought of another one, Koss ProDj100, many give it more props than the sennheiser, but it's also cheaper, and again, folds up nice and small.
