Recommend me a set of Earbuds?

I'd like to say its for gaming to keep it on topic, but really its to listen to music on my phone >_>

Some features I'm looking for are:
-Decent wire that doesn't coil itself to death
-Good quality sound (doesn't have to be ridiculously amazing)
-Sub $100, but preferably ~$50

Any recommendations?

I don't think you guys understand what a recommendation is... Trust me I'm doing my own research already, but it'd be nice to see what others are using and enjoy

I use a pair of skullcandies I got for $10 because Amazon was clearing out their backstock for the 2012 models. Not the best quality, I know, but they're pretty comfortable. Was the Paul Frank version, with the monkey on one and the giraffe on the other.

If I were to spend anything more, I'd want proper over-ear headphones, though.

Once we perfect building Mechs, I expect there to be a factory in Mexico pumping out a brand call Mechsican. I wanna buy me a Mechsican.

Don't, buds will kill your hearing over time. Get some over the ear headphones.

You asked a very broad question. Narrow things down a bit and you can get a better answer.

-What kind of music do you listen to?
-What kind of sound signature are you looking for?
-Do you need smartphone support?
-What is your output device?
-What are your source files like?
Etc, etc.

They're fine for your hearing, the only con about them is that they can cause wax build up.
