Best in-ear headphones?


New member
I'm looking for in-ear headphones to make music on the go without using the bigger one. Are there relatively cheap headphones that have very good sound quality? Any assumptions?

If you're looking for inexpensive, I'd check KZ in-ears.

A simple Ebay search to give you a price idea. You can spend $20 on up to $70 or more. I bought a $35 set earlier this year, they sound great. You may want to find some replaceable foam buds for them, I guess that depends on how they fit in the first place.

I don't know about their reliability. But there are more than a few videos on the subject on YouTube, and I always hear positive reviews about these.

By the way, there are a ton of other threads on the subject here. You may want to do some searching. Good Luck

I have these Sony’s I found at BestBuy for $19 and they sound pretty even on my iPod and computer. If it’s just for scratch work while you’re out and about I wouldn’t spend more than that unless you decide to go real IEMs which start at $399.

For value for money, you want KZ in-ears. They're a fraction of the cost of in-ears like the Shure SE215, and sound every bit as good.

I would buy them from Amazon and not Ebay though, so you don't have to wait for shipping from China.
