Default Uncomfortable Headphones

I picked up these at Circuit City (or erm... The Source By Circuit City as they want us Canadians to call it ) and they are rather uncomfortable.

http://www.thesourcecc.com/estore/pr...roduct=3319516

They were CA$29.99 regular, but I got them on sale for CA$4.99, and they are really uncomfortable. Are all neckband style headphones like that? I'm an earphone person and never bothered to try these before... I've had regular head phones though.

Maybe its just me... do you like neckband headphones?

The earphones are nice though... compact for travelling.

I think the problem with these is the padding isn't very good so it doesn't feel comfortable on your ears...

I have these babies:
http://www.shure.com/PersonalAudio/P...pa_E2c_content

They're amazing. Awesome quality for only $100, and they're super comfortable. They come with 3 different kinds of attachable buds (foam, soft plastic, or hard plastic) in 3 different sizes of each. The best part though, is that they are like earplugs, so you can't hear anything else. Amazing for plane rides!!!

And they have intense bass for earbuds.

I'd love to have something like that, but I'm the type of person that doesn't want to spend a lot of headphones or earphones... and even $100 sounds like a lot to me, lol.

Yeah, I got them on sale for like $60 though. And I use them a lot, so I think it was well worth it.

Yeah, I have a pair of Shure E2c's for my Gigabeat. I got them for about $70 or so. Gotta love PriceGrabber.

As for at home or normal listening, I use my Icemat Siberia Headset. So comfy.
