Tell me your all favorite Earphones for Music?

Hi,

As always struggling to put my finger down on a decent earbuds for Music.
While I'm no audiophile and know what to expect with my budget, I'm looking for recommendations for the best audio quality given my budget of ~$50. Tried many pairs off Amazon in the $20-$30s range. Mostly meh but some semi decent ones. Hence the will to go higher.

Don't mind wired or wireless (can even go a bit higher $ for wireless), the most important factor for me is great sound quality at that price range, and a microphone for calls.
What has been your experiences?


Earphones only (no headphones).

Looks interesting, thanks.
Can you confirm whether they have a mic? Description is vague.
I thought Amazon.com doesn't deliver to Canada (Toronto)?

Yes there is a mic, I ordered from amazon.com no problem a few months ago with a lot of RV stuffs that are half the price, even with import fee.
They are backordered it seems on .com

This is the pair I'm currently using; not a big fan.

If you are looking for bang for your buck, have a look at some of the many 'chi-fi' IEMs/earphones that have recently flooded the marketplace. Many of them are in the exact price range you are looking at and offer good value for the money.

These look promising, though a bit pricey! I ordered a pair of the Betron BS10 suggested in the thread. Will see how I get on with those before making the move to the next price range.

Thanks for the tip. Will keep it in mind for the next pair.
