Cool Headphones Question: Durability or Sound

Hey I'm looking to get a new pair of headphones. Should I focus on the durability or the quality of sound? Last season I used a pair of smokin buds, but they broke, and sounded horrible.

Please let me know!!!

Default Need new headphones! Sound or Durability?

Hey I'm looking to get a new pair of headphones. Should I focus on the durability or the quality of sound. Last season I used a pair of smokin buds on the mountain, but they broke, and sounded horrible. Looking to get over ear ones to keep my ears warm, but Let me know whatever.

Please let me know!!!

Personally I wouldn't spend much on headphones to use for riding. Chances are high they're gonna get fucked up. Wires yanked out, broken, drenched, etc.

I concur. I'd rather own a few cheap headphones that don't sound terrible then 1 expensive pair that may sound better if I wasn't going various speeds down a mtn.

Do you want buds or over the head headphones?

I use some cheap skull candy head phones with my helmet and a nicer beats cord from my iPod to plug in. I have replaced the headphones twice but it was like 10 dollars each time. Why would I spend 200 dollars on headphones and not spend it on boots, bindings or a board instead?

Yeah.but Phillps/O'Neill collab headphones are killer for boarding.Sound great doen't break and even helmet compatible.Can be used besides boarding too.Frends Alli and Kicker HP201 are good too.Highly reccomended

The headband on those Philips/O'Neils sucks ass. I had them and it broke with the quickness.
