Default Need Some Ear Buds Under $59.99

I'm looking for some good ear buds that are $59.99 or lower. I've been looking at the Skull Candy Full Metal Jacket 9mm's and like the looks of those but can't seem to get them for the american price matched to the american price of $54.99 even though the Canadian dollar is higher.

I can go a little over $59.99 but about $69.99 max!

Thanks in advance.

$20? The ones I want are like...$200...my headphones are $200 (where on sale for $150, but I managed to talk it down to $100!), and my headset is $150. I enjoy good audio -_-

Now as for the $60 price range, I'm not to sure, I'll see if I can't find something...

Never had a pair of headphones that have malfunctioned, and I've put them threw tons of abuse, and if they did, it's called a warranty, oh, and I've had them for 2 years so far, and they are still working great. And as for snatching them, never happened to me, sure, it could, but it's the same thing as saying "well, I shouldn't buy a good mp3 player because someone could steal it from me". Same thing with a PSP or DS or any other such device. I'm sorry, but if I'm paying $300 for an Ipod, I want to get the most out of it, trust me, there is a huge difference between a cheap and high quality pair.

I hear ya on that. $200 for headphones to walk around with? Not for me.

I would spend $100 or so on a nice pair for gaming that will stay in my house but to spend that money to walk around the street with? No thanks.

Too easy to lose or get stolen. I'm not that brave.

Good luck on getting some original poster.
