    Default ZAGG Z.buds
    Anyone using the Z.buds from ZAGG? If so how do they compare to other headphones you have tried. Looking for a new setup of headphones for my iPhone 3G but I am not sure what to get. Is BOSE the best? What's your thoughts?

    Thanks,
    BILL

    The Zagg are "cool". But I doubt their worth the 80$ in sound quality.

    The Bose are overpriced and expensive as hell, and not worth it.

    If you want great earphones with a mic.

    Get the NuForce NE-7M. Their regarded better than most 150$ earphones.
    For just 50$, you cant go wrong.

    Ok..

    So, I couldnt help myself.

    Ive just ordered the Z.Buds. I just want those easy to manage cords!!!

    Im also ordering the NuForce NE-7M's soon. Theyll turn out to be even cheaper than the Z.buds....

    Whatever I like better, Ill keep and give the other one to my girl.
    (I got them for a good 20% discount using a code I had due to my earlier purchases! )
    So ive paid about 62$ including 10$ shipping to India. (I really hope they get here sooner than 7-10 days. Id love having them by New years!)

    Ill have a review out as soon as I get them.

    Will compare them to the CX300's & CX500's that I have.

    Edit : Just got 2 more! So, If you want the discount code, Id be happy to give it to you! .

    I did end up ordering from Zagg. With coupon I got it for $59 shipped. I figure they are worth every penny of that from what I have read. Just waiting to get them now.

    Default Z Buds 30% off
    Hey guys,
    I just bought a pair of the website and now you can get 30% off anything including Z Buds. When everything was done, including shipping, I ended up paying $53. Now is the time to tryout the Z Buds if you were considering buying them. They also send you an email to send out to friends for 20% off one time buy.

    I marked it as SPAM. Hopefully it will get removed.

    I know. I just thought it was funny that you posted on here. After the reviews I have read I ordered the Z.BUDDS and await the arrival!

    Default good for running?
    Just wondering if anyone has tried these for running...next to sound quality, my main concern is the earphones staying in no matter how fast I'm running.

    Also does anyone have a 20% off code? They're back up to 80 bucks, which is too steep for me to buy them in the first place...

    I would go for beats by dr. dre, either the studio model or the tour. the studio model is the DJ headphones while the tour model is the in-ear earphones. These are the best yet. It is made by a company named Monster.

    it is expensive but it is worth it for me. the studio model runs for $349 while the tour model runs at $149.

    and Dr. Dre has no knowledge of producing quality headphones. Some company probably just stamped his name on them, doubled the price, and bam, people go nuts. What does he have on companies such as Shure, Bose, and Etymotic?

    Ofcourse you gotta use Coupon codes.

    Im not sure their worth 80$ either. But 50$, they definitely are.

    That said, I haven't received mine yet, so cant say much about the audio quality.

    The company who produces this headphones is Monster. and they have collaborated with Dr. Dre when doing these quality headphones, I have the tour model of the beats and let me personally tell you, it is better than Bose or Shure Earphones, I can say that because my dad has a Bose earphones, and I have indeeed compared their differences, from the low frequency sound output to its bass. It has also the patented flat wired or what they called "duraflex" cables which indeed a tangle-free wire for earphones. It matches my iphone case which is the iskin revo 2 diablo red. Next time, do some in-depth research before saying stuff like that, I know what im talking about because I personally own one.

    With that being said, I think the beats tour model can be relatively similar to the Sennheiser in-ear earphones models for iphone, I am not sure because I haven't tested one yet but based from its specs, they are quite the same.
