    Just my personal opinion but I have some over the ears Bose headphones that kick ass, noticed no difference from Beats. I actually prefer ear buds when working out cause I sweat so damn much I have to keep wiping the big ones off.

    In all honesty you'd be better off getting a pair of Beyer DT770 studio monitors which are unmatched in terms of transparency for the price. Unless you're willing to make some significant sacrifices the difference between a set of studio phones and something you'd use in the gym is too vast to find a multiuse pair. If you're serious about studio quality get the horse**** marketing from rap moguls out of your head and pay for real ears.

    If you do want a recommendation for good in-ears at a reasonable cost, look into Shure or Klipsch. Bose may be fine for consumer use but they don't even begin to match up to Shure for actual frequency response.

    I am not a Dre fan, some songs sound great on it, some not so good. My choice (country) sounds absolute gash on it, so I stuck with the Bose I got.

    My German friend keeps talking about some Seinheiser or something that he swears by.
