Default Looking for new headphones for riding

Hey all looking to pick up some new headphones for riding and trying to get some suggestions. I've used a lot of cheap buds before, anything you could find for like twenty bucks or less. But I'm looking for something that's going to last and has some good sound quality too along with durablity. An inline mute would be nice also. A few I'm looking at are SkullCandy, Beats by Dre, and Nixion. Any other suggestions out there or experienced that could help me out? Thanks.

if you can afford it check out shure or ultimate ears. maybe even klispch (s4i). i wouldnt recommend the beats because they arent really value for money

Pick any one of those three for a solid poser look.

You need UrbanEars. Headphones - Urbanears

The "Medis" model. They've got this cool little clip/holder thing so the buds won't fall out of your ears at all. Great sound - the buds actually have mini sound drives in each so you get great bass. They are NOT in-ear buds, so you can still hear whats going on around you (better for riding IMO) but are still plenty loud.

Great colors, the wire is actually encased in a fabric so they don't tangle either. In line mute/song changer button.

You can't go wrong. Amazon has 'em for around $30. When I'm not snowboarding I'm a music nerd...I'm super picky about sound quality and these things are the BEES KNEES.

Durability? V-Moda M-80s. Blows the Beats out of the water (plus you'll be different).

And is made to military level quality.

This is what they say:

Tested Beyond Military-Level Quality MIL-STD-810G Test Standards
No idea what that means but it sounds impressive!

Seriously though. If you have a radio shack nearby go check them out. They're on sale for $130 (or was a few days ago). Check out reviews too.
