    awesome headphones

    if you like to zone out to tunes on prep days/end of service, i highly recommend these inexpensive set of earbuds.
    https://www.amazon.com/Blue-Ever-328...dp/B0053Y5SXW/
    they sound brilliantly clean, have zero listening fatigue and comfortable to wear.
    my favorite part is their vocal clarity, but they have pretty good bass response as well (not boomy/thumpy, but can actually hear each note)

    i would call it the munetoshi of headphones, unbeatable value performance.

    Just to be annoying, I would like to point out that those are in ear monitors. Headphones sit on top of the ear..

    Hehe, just kidding - thanks for the heads up. They appear to be out of stock though..

    OK - if you want to be pedantic, headphones can sit on top of or around ears - aka supraaural or circumaural headphones. And if you're going to refer to any audio equipment as "monitor" you're usually talking pretty high-end equipment - unlikely to be found in $30 earphones/earbuds but hey... you never know your luck.

    And no offence to the OP, I have earbuds by Logitech and Denon that perform just fine for around the same price point.

    http://www.proaudio.com.au/shoppingc...28Pair%29.html Well, these certainly suck.
    http://www.proaudio.com.au/shoppingc...itor-Pair.html These are very nice though.

    Monitor is a term used to describe a function, not a measure of quality? Ie I have posted links to some nice near field monitors and some crappy ones..

    On topic I have always had trouble with fitting those in ear type ones as they always seem to fall out of my ears. In fact I have just ordered some to use with my iPhone, that I hope will stay in the ear --> https://www.aliexpress.com/item/Prof...608.0.0.Nj8Bzp
    Not hoping for anything in terms of sound quality, just hope they will stay in my ears!

    Point taken Lars. If I'm going to be pedantic, I have to accept that. I actually looked at Behringer speakers a couple of years ago mainly because they'd called themselves "studio monitors" or something similar. Then I heard them and can concur, they do indeed suck. I'm reminded of some massive JBL 4333As I heard a long time back in a recording studio - now they were monitors for sure. In a similar but much cheaper vain, I saw and heard some humble Auratone cubes used for mix-down in a home studio. They did their job admirably - allowing engineers to mix their tracks to sound good on average portable equipment. If anyone calls their speakers (or earphones) "monitor" I expect them to be able to reproduce the audio spectrum fairly accurately. That, as you say, is a function and not a measure of quality.

    But by saying something is a monitor, evokes inherent notions of accuracy (at least, it does to me). According to http://etymonline.com, the notion of monitor as we're discussing, came around 1924 and meant "to check for quality" and originally related to radio signals. Sorry for the off-topic rant.

    Sorry, seems my pun failed pretty hard.

    They seem really nice based on your description, panda!

    Again sorry for running the thread off topic.

    I'll couche for Panda on headphone savvy. I have gotten a couple pairs from him and his characterizations have been spot on.
    If you're going through hell, keep going.

    Sorry Panda - I went on a sideways rant. The pedant within went crazy and hijacked your thread.
    If the Blue Ever Blue 328R HDSS earphones ever hit the Australian market, I'll be sure to try them out.
