The Woes Of Retail

Internet, I need your opinion. I've been wanting to get these for quite some time. I love the color, and the size and weight is almost ideal, but I feel like they might be a little bit pricey at $80 and sitting on the purchase has not presented the opportunity to buy them on sale. I cannot afford these at $180, and these do not fit in my ears because I went and did this to myself several years ago with another, similar one on the other side of my head. (Btw, HOW cute does my hair look, there? Seriously??)
I would have gotten these ($50) last weekend, but I tried them on in the Urban store, and Paul said they looked stupid. That might have been his impatience at my insistence to go into a store when he wanted to go home and let his upset stomach settle talking, though.

So what do you think? I'm currently using a torn up pair of wrap-around TDK headphones that came with one of those old school .mp3-CD players like EIGHT years ago. Did I mention I've been wearing them to work out in for over 4 years? And the QC2's are not good for walking, and not very environmentally friendly with their use of a battery...

How are the size weight and sound of the $50 pair? If you didn't get an accurate feel due to subterfuge, give them another try, otherwise go for the $80 pair and don't worry about it.

i've been SWEARing by the sony sport headphones (available here: http://www.amazon.com/Sony-MDR-W08L-Vertical-In-The-Ear-Headphones/dp/B00005N6KG/ref=pd_bbs_2?ie=UTF8&s=electronics&qid=1237572532&sr=8-2) ever since i got my first sony sport cassette walkman.

the ipod ones hurt my ears after 3 minutes, and don't stay in when i run, but the sony sport are lightweight, inexpensive and stay in my ears. highly recommended.

the skullcandy lowrider's are only 30$ and they are veri fanci w. lots of colors and i find the sound quality to be the same as any other headphones you find though my experience w/ them is pretty brief
