Hello AndroidPIT users! I was wondering what earbuds people use for your Android phones and/or tables?

Personally I use my A-Jays Five, really great earbuds, great sound, flat cable and it has a three button layout which is fairly unusual unfortunately. They are a bit pricey at 800 SEK for me in Sweden which equals to about 80 euros or 120 dollars.

So, what do you guys use? :)

I normally use a pair of Sennheiser earbuds, can't remember the model number as I got them a few years ago. I also use the LG HBS730 wireless headset now and again.

I use Sony Bump in Buds and if you have not tried these you would not believe the Incredible sound and bass No distortion. All for only $20 bucks. These headphones are thee best I've ever heard. And they work great with my HTC I also use the app. Music volume EQ to get even better sound from the Android phone.

Atomic Floyd SuperDarts.

Very easily the best sound quality I have ever heard from in-ear headphones, but they did cost 4X the price of my regular ones!

My only reservation about them is that they are metallic, which feels nice but they are quite heavy, so they tend to fall out of my ears occasionally when I am walking :(

Right now I use a bunch, I have some Plantronics BackBeat Go 2 Bluetooth headphones for running etc

At home I just use the included earbuds from my YotaPhone to watch movies in bed (because they're tiny and I can lay on the side of my head with them without killing my ears). The sound quality is actually really good for freebies too!

And then I have some LG QuadBeat's for road trips etc because they have much richer sound. Still cheap though cos I tend to lose nice things.

I use Bowers&Wilkins C5 earphones. They are a bit pricey as well around 130 dollars but they are sturdy and flexible at the same time and outstanding sound. I'm a video producer and also use them for my work .

They have a strange in-ear design though but fits perfectly.

Well.. not exactly. It's an investment.
I used to have issues with all my previous earphones: they break easily whether its external damage or internal (sound stops working from one side) it always happen and I used to change earphones every 3 months or so. 20$ here 40 $ there.. at some point it's best to purchase something more reliable. So It's more of a personal choice than anything else.

I had thought of an alternative meanwhile that was great : Jackplugs in L shape + flat cables used to do the trick and Jay's Five had this design. And it worked.. though after they fell and ran over .. I kid you not lol. It was an unfortunate accident really.. I went to the store to buy new ones of the same brand.

but then it struck me.. purchasing non stop new earphones even if that last accident was not really my fault .. expenses wise, it's best to purchase something more expensive with a 2 year warranty. He convinced me to purchase the C5. I was already "bought" by the P5 which is a headphone model from Bowers&wilkins but it was too expensive and I didn't really have any use for a headphone.

Look up the design of the c5: (well I can't paste a link since i'm a new user.. bugger that.. Google it then "Bowers & wilkins c5 design"

oh yes and I also needed for the flatest sound possible.. in other words the most accurate reproduction of the original sound. Too bassy is not for me and is not good for anyone either. Authentic is what's best.
