    Item number 121067176950 on the bay. Why did Babolat do such a thing.
    The new upcoming : Beats by Dr.Babolat.

    Overpriced and probably not that great, exactly like Beats.....

    You can purchase some good Senneisher studio quality headphones for like $70 and it's twice the quality of beats...

    Interesting to see the current season of 'Mad Men' talking about Koss headphones of the '60s. My brother swore by the Koss Pro4AA so much, those were my first headphones in the early '70s. Wonder how they would stack up now?

    I prefer my Klipsch s4i's for their portability.

    They can't be real. They just can't be.

    The Babolat headphone is cheap compared to the Sennheiser HD800. The Sennheiser HD800 cost $1499.95.

    I was talking about the 280 Pro's, they can be found for $80-100 and have awesome isolation and you can hear deep bass and treble well. Though some people don't like the fitting or isolation. I use mine for my guitar amp and other miscellaneous online activities ;).

    You are paying way too much for portable earphones. I would highly suggest the Panasonic RPHJE120's. They cost 5 bucks on Amazon and produce excellent sound quality and some noise cancellation(because of the rubber buds closing up your ear. I usually buy 3 a year to play tennis with, you don't have to be careful with these at all.

    I'm nit-picking here haha, but I assume you meant isolation, not cancellation.

    I wouldn't say Klipsch S4's are expensive. They're not for audiophiles, but they have decent clarity on all ranges with emphasized bass, which suits some folks. Definitely levels above $5 earphones. Plus buttons for smartphones and a 2-year warranty... a decent middle-of-the-road choice.

    Koss phones are still very nice, especially for the price. porta/sporta pros and KSC-75 are all nice entry level phones with surprising range. They're not as tight sounding (well defined) as some other higher end phones out there, but for the $20-50 range, they're still recommended to this day.

    I mean... they're OK. ;)
    I'd argue that there is technically better phones for the price. But for specific usages, they're great. I wouldn't say they're the best representative of overall senn quality, though. (as in: I wouldn't refer to these when I think Senn sound signature..). I also think the Grado SR-60/80 are better values for the price (assuming you don't heavily value isolation).

    Yep. To all points.

    For around $50's, I wouldn't risk playing tennis with those. I'm used to earphones being only used for active activities and headphones for sitting down with.
