Default Headphones

Im looking for some nice headphones to use while boarding. I use ear buds now but they always fall out and they start to hurt my ears. I saw a few kids with nice "over the head" headphone son this weekend and i cant find some nice ones. Can you guys please point me in the right direction.

I honestly don't know too much about headphones, but I do hear good things about skullcandy headphones. You may want to check them out

Skullcandy is...bleh. Went through 2 pairs, and the quality was cheap as fuck, and not in a good way. They sound great, but they need ALOT of work in the QC department, and I have heard similar reports talking to other people as well.

You can get good headphones at Bestbuy, Walmart, etc. you just have to go shop. I'm looking at getting a headphone beanie of some sort, I was looking at the Volcom ones last year, but I think I might buck up for a Burton this year, as I've heard the headphones in them are of higher quality. If you are going for the big headphones, KOSS makes some nice ones, I've never had any other kind before and loved them. Wish I could be of more help

I use an ear bud similar to this style. It has a clip that fits over your ear to prevent them from getting ripped out of your ear. This year I purchased a helmet with audio built-in to see how that works.

In the same ilk but of a higher audio standard than the Skull Candy buds check out V-Moda Vibes... you can find them for about $75. Sound freaking unbelievable, I actually replaced my super expensive Etymotic Research ER-4's which cost me like $250 with these V-Moda's. Also check out their lower end version sound almost as good but cost like $40

I guess you don't wear a helmet if your looking for "over the head" headphones.
If you do wear a helmet R.E.D. makes one that has built in headphones. If you can deal with it being from Burton.

I agree the audio helmet or the audio beanie is the way to go. Earbuds tend to piss me off and start to hurt my ears after a while.
