What made you want to upgrade from your stock or department store earbuds?
For me, this was many many years ago, the main purpose was to block out outside noise without having my ears ring after listening off my phone. A necessity when commuting to and from school without losing my mind on the bus and subway! My first was the Klipsch S4i, which blocked out a ton of noise especially with comply and shure olive foam tips
whats yours? and why?
