Any good earbuds for gaming/music that hook over the top of my ears?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

So I'm not really a fan of headphones, even though that's where the best sound is. Most just aren't comfortable on the ears, so I'm using earbuds now, but I definitely need new ones, and if possible, ones with great sound that also can hook over the top of my ears as opposed to the ones that you just stick inside your ears. I can never get those to stay in. Are there any good-sounding earbuds out there like this? Money isn't an issue. I'm willing to pay up some good money for good quality earbuds!

Jaybird X3's do this, and come with a bunch of different sized ear tips and hooks

 

Not sure if theres a newer version of them, but I use these so I can vouch

I looked these up and these appear to be bluetooth. Can these connect to my PC physically? I'd prefer to plug them directly in.

No they're wireless in ears.

 

You'll want to look at sport ear buds

Mee Audio M6 Pro or the higher end version. Full kit of earbuds sizes and a cable with a mix, with a case. Super cheap too. If you can afford higher end I'd do it though 


That's an F in the profile pic

4 driver earphones with a flat/balanced/neutral sound signature (according to online reviews): https://www.brainwavzaudio.com/collections/earphones/products/b400-quad-balanced-armature-earphones

So if it's 4 driver, does that mean it's better than the MEE Audio M7 PROs? I believe those are dual drivers. I don't know anything about audio so I'm a little lost. More drivers = better overall sound??

Not necessarily, it all depends on how the company tunes the drivers. In the case of the brainwavz b400 earphones that i linked, it has a neutral sound signature (according to online reviews) which basically means it has no emphasis on the bass frequencies, vocals, or the high hats/treble area. I do not know if it is necessarily better than the M7 pro from MEE Audio, but i would assume that it is very different. Try it out if you can & return it if it is not to your liking.. that is what i would do..
