Dude check out Sony MDR-XB40EX headphones. They aren't too expensive, awesome build quality, and un-beatable sound quality for the price. They come with all different earbud sizes so you can find the perfect ones for your ear. I always ride with earbuds, I can't stand over ear's while I'm riding just for the fact that if you take a good slam the chances of them surviving are minimal compared to earbuds you wear under your beanie or helmet.

Hopefully their customer service honors their warranty and doesn't give you some runaround. Good luck

I'm a believer in cheap headphones now too, though I only strayed from that belief for a while. I bought some $50 Siege headphones, and within 2 months they started cutting out from LAPTOP USE. That was it, though I realized it had something to do with the plug, probably the way they secured the wires. Thankfully they warrantied it and sent me another pair. The driver in the left ear came loose, meaning it was jangling around in the plastic socket. I had to take it apart and manually fix it. Now they are doing the same stupid thing the old ones did, making the music cut out when the wire moves at all (once again due to bad wire design). Meanwhile, my $10 Koss's Amazon.com: Koss KSC75 Portable Stereophone Headphones: Electronics sounded great, and lasted 2 years, though they recently died.

don't bother with beats, or any monster headphones at that for snowboarding... I own a set of the studios and they are decent headphones but monster headphones in general are crap... Especially their earbuds, and their build quality is less than stellar. They barely make it through a normal days use let alone a day on the mountain.

Beats would be decent if their price tag was half of what it is... There are FAR better headphones for the price you pay for beats... Sure the styling of the beats is probably best on the market but thats about it... when you are paying hundreds for headphones I expect them to be top notch sound, and build quality. Which the beats/monsters are not... When it comes to monster, you do NOT get what you pay for.

If you are really looking for some affordable headphones with superior sound quality check out vmoda or sennheiser.

It's all preference bro, I love mine and If I lost them today I'd get a new pair that same day.
