Looking to pick up a new wired headset for my blackberry. So it needs to be good quality for music (even though it'll be MP3's) and a good mic pickup so the overall call quality is also good. I currently have the NuForce NE-7M's as their reviews were great, but I am not as enthused after over a year with them. I am now looking to step it up a notch in terms of both audio and mic quality. Any experiences out there? I don't mind paying a bit more as long as I get what I'm paying for.

Thanks for your input!

I like my Ety HF3's that work the controls on my iPhone 4. I spent the extra $100 for molds and that's still cheaper than other custom options. The advantage is that the same molds will work w/ the whole Ety line, which is a plus. Great for passive noise cancellation on the plane.

Thanks oldskool, those definitely look like a step up.
When on the phone, how is your voice quality for others? I often times have people complain I sound muffled when I use my current headset, then if I switch to no headset it is way easier for people to hear me clearly.

I've had similar complaints as well, mostly w/ the stock iPhone headset. W/ the Etys, no complaints. Because I use the custom fit shell, I can hear VERY well.

Edit...looked over that you need a mic.

i would look at what shure has to offer. i had a set of E3c's many years back, and i really like those head phones a LOT...

here is what they seem to currently have. They mention that they "work with select apple products" i dont know about blackberry you will have to look that up...


If i had a need for another set of good earbud style head phones, that were not crazy expensive, i would buy what shure was selling again.

Never listened to in ear Shures, but I like their full sized headphones a lot. Not the most comfortable headphones I've used but they sound good. If I were to get in ears, if possible I would probably get them custom fit to my ears like what was suggested above.

I have the ety HF 5's and love them. Same as HF2's just without the mic. Excellent sound quality. The standard large grey flange tips fit great in my ear. The noise isolation is so good that If I wear them at work people come up and talk to me all the time and I can't hear them.... Sometimes that is a disadvantage but when I want to tune out the world it works perfect!

Thanks guys. I talked to a buddy last night who has a pair of the earbud style Sure's he is not using. He's going to lend them to me to try out - they don't have a mic but at least I can test the fit and SQ of the Sure's for my application with my source material. Kind of like the Axiom demo period without the 30 day limitation! I'll also check out the ETY's and see what Skull Candy has to offer. I've got some solid brands to compare now. Thanks for pointing me in the right direction.
