Gutted, my earphones broke yesterday luckily enough I have a spare pair of Gummy's lying around. Was having a look this morning for a new decent pair but really don't know what to go for. Found bassbuds which have Swarovski on the bud which makes them look really cute. My only concern is they are a brand I don't really know so not sure on the quality and hoping one of you may have had experiences with them.

The link is here if you want to have a look, hoping you could give me advice or your thoughts on whether they seem decent enough to fork 40 on, thanks!!!

Sorry, I hadn't realised it came off that way :/ . Just wanted to get some help/opinions on those or other recommendations within that price range.

I've had some Sennheisers in the past that were really good. They do loads, but I'm sure some for under 50.

Thanks, I've heard quite a lot about them I just always thought they were overly expensive. Will have a look now thanks!

Hoe weird. My iPhone earphones broke on Saturday as well and I bought some gummy ones to replace them. They are quite uncomfortable though so I'm looking for something else too. I quite liked the Apple ones but they only lasted 5 months so am reluctant to get them again.

Another vote for Sennys! The CX in-ear models give great sound and average about 30 (some more, some less)

Their only fault I find is that their wires tangle too easily.

If you're willing to spend more, I bought a set of V-Moda in-ear ones from the US and they have covered wires and are virtually tangle-free, but they were about 75.

Oh ok, they sound reasonable, yeah I have a problem with tangling wires have actually broken a pair before because they were tangled so badly, think a wire had snapped inside - ouch.

Will have a look at the V-Moda ones though, don't mind spending a bit more if they are worth it Thank you

V-Moda are okay (I love the look of their vibes), but if you're after sound quality Sennheiser are amongst the best headphones at almost any price point.

I've got some of their over-ear ones for running and some over-ear ones for listening at home. Sound quality is excellent on them all.
