Any advice on headphones?

by elykl33t / March 18, 2009 1:15 PM PDT

Hey everyone at CNET. I just wanted to ask for some advice on headphones!

I do alot of moving around and theyll get bumped around a bit. I like to listen to metal, and loudly, but im not a bass freak and i still listen to other stuff. Im used to using ear-buds, not in ear. The other day i tried a pair of in-ear ones and they seemed very bright and tiny-sounding, so i really don't know what to pick!

Anyone have any advice? Oh, and under $50 would be nice haha.

They do look good. I should have changed the title though, I prefer earbuds to full headphones. I did put that in the post, but i can see why you didnt see it XD. Plus me and my friends simply refer to all of them as "headphones"

Anyone know any good earbuds? the headphones just seem a bit much for taking around school and stuff.

Beats by Dr. Dre

i have the dr dre's
they are really good
iv been through many headphones and these are by far the most kickass
they'v taken a beating or two and are fine and the quality is sensation
they are produced by monster which are pioneers in the industry and if u look at the specs they seem quite superior to others i looked at around the web and in music/audio stores
im very happy with them and really recommend getting good,reliable headphones that aren't gonna distort at high volumes - in fact i find real high quality lows and highs even when cranked
good luck shopping
don't stop rocking!

OP was hoping for under 50 bucks. Don't think the Beats qualify. : )

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
