I bought a pair of Nike buds and the fuckers would occasionally shock my ears.
Lmao - my old ipod ones did the same thing to me. I would be running on the treadmill and all of a sudden get a fucking jolt on the inside part of my ear (not the canal part). I bought new cheap ones at Best Buy and they did the same thing. I'm not a science wiz, but it kind of seemed like the shock was from static electricity. My gym pants are incredibly static-y and I often would go to the water fountain and splash water on my pants (black mesh) to calm the static down. The earbuds don't shock me when I'm using them at home, so that's the only thing I can think of.
My favorite buds are the ones that come with that plastic/rubber bit that wraps around your ears. It lets you stuff the buds in better and without the risk of them falling out.
Yeah, seconded. I'm not crazy about inner ear ones either because they get uncomfortable and taking them out and putting them back in later, say after class, can hurt. Plus they can get ear wax in them and that's nasty
Beats are expensive pieces of shit. Wanna spend 200 dollars on headphones, try sennheiser or sony headphones.
Sennheisers are great.
