I am searching for a way to listen to music in noisy environments.
My desktop doesn't support bluetooth so i would like a wired product.
These two things are the first and most important criterion.
Then i would prefer if it took not a lot of space, maybe earbuds instead of cask (2nd criterion). I plan to use them with my desktop but also with my phone when i'm in the metro. Bonus if there is an integrated micro.
Aside from that, music quality and price should be respectively maximized and minimized, but they have a lower priority than the others criteria. Do you know perhaps something like that ?

I don't like earbuds but to each his own.

Well, i would prefer to be able to not take a bag with me every time i go outside.
Seems inconvenient sometimes.

Why on earth do you need headphones when you go outside if you don't also need a laptop for a meeting?

a way to listen to music in noisy environments.

I don't know what to say, it's pretty clear. When you commute regularly in the metro do you really want to hear all these busy and noisy sounds instead of your own music ?

Everybody needs a 303.

I would love an Abstrakt Instruments Avalon, but man what a ticket! Plus they're never in stock, and the secondary market on them is a bloody mess.
I think even though it is a little tiny bit raspy in comparison, that for the best bang for your buck the little Behringer TD-3 is fairly impressive, and for just a little bit more you can get the TD-3-MO which so incredibly different from the original, cloning the classic devilfish mod, that it is entirely in form a completely different instrument altogether, a complete sonic universe of its own.

So if you're willing to deviate, why not something like the moog minitaur. That is cute and has a real phatty sound, but is it acid? What is it?

Erica synths has a nice gritty beast, but honestly, I'm with fatboy slim on this one that everyone needs a 303. What he means is not a clone or reimagining of the classic, but a lovingly cared for actual roland 303, which is an entirely different statement of purpose really, if you think about it.
