The headphone to convince you not to spend as little as possible

Advantages: All round brilliant
Disadvantages: Cost a little more but really is worth it.
I wear headphones all the time, and if I'm, not listening to music for some reason they'll be hanging around my neck. Until recently I used to buy and use the cheap £5 headphones that sony make and to be fair to them they were good for the money. Then, a month or so ago I decided to spend a bit more to see if it really made that much difference. So I bought these. And the difference is staggering. I'm still not convinced that spending £50+ on a pair of headphones is a worthwhile investment but these (they cost me £19) really do sound and feel better.
The in ear design is comfy and comes with three sizes to fit any ear (maybe not extremes but they are comfy for me on the middle size). They are so much comfier than the hard plastic ones (they are rubber) that cost less.
The sound is of high quality and is clear and crisp with no distortions over any of the range.
Even though they are not noise cancelling they do cut out a lot of background noise and allow you to play your music more quietly so your ears don't have to die. The downside of this is that you can't really use them while cycling or running if you need to be aware of what is going on around you.
The cable is plenty long enough to reach to the bottom of the deepest pocket and comes with a winder to stop spare cable flapping around if you do need it shorter.
I have been using them almost constantly for the past two months and they've not shown even the slightest sign of dying in any way (split cable by the jack etc).
They have finally convinced me that it is worth spending a little more.
Summary: I shall buy them again if they ever die. What else can I say?
