22:57 - Erik M. Well, maybe headphones are generally superior to (in-)earbuds, I could imagine that (and less damaging as well).
22:56 - Redn1ght Some Psychedelic Metal can get bassy.
22:55 - !J.O.O.E.! Regular earbuds never stay in my ears. I didn't think it was even possible to get good sound quality with those things anyway... - I would honestly say metal is one of the least bass-oriented genres there are.
22:54 - Redn1ght Depends on the genre. J.O.O.E some stuff can get pretty bassy.
22:54 - Erik M. Joe, you're right. The bass is indeed terrible. Very shallow, crappy sound. I don't get claustrofobic (never, actually), but those things black outside noises which is highly annoying and dangerous (if you're travelling, like me).
22:51 - Erik M. Yeah, headphones are probably superior in sound quality, but I like earbuds because they're compact and easily put in/removed. Those in-earbuds are truly the worst ever. Never again will I buy those things.
