Here is a simple guide that will help you get the maximum best out of your budget when going for an earphone. Many people may ask why I did not included any headphones. The answer to this is that personally I don’t like headphones a lot because they tend to hang around over the ear and tend to make your ears uncomfortable and warm (hot) in some duration, this guide is solely directed towards people who will be using it for portable media, and I can guess something discrete is way better than
Bulky hanging from your head. I personally have around 7-8 IEM’s hanging around the house with two of those i have given to my friends and relatives. With having an extra pair you can’t be wrong, like I can’t live without my music for a day and I don’t like playing on the speaker built with the phone, so earphones are an absolute necessary for me. Well with that being said let’s start with the guide.
Sound Magic ES 18 (9$)
The best and cheapest solution to your audio needs these ear buds have comfy grip along with great sound quality a little bassy sound with adequate noise cancellation. I have a pair of these.
Creative EP630 (13$)
The specialty of this IEM is its sound stage which is enormous, a little on the flat side these IEM has great noise cancellation when paired with some professional ear tips. I also have a pair of these too.
Sound Magic PL21 (19$)
Great soundstage along with the bass feel, the bass depth is quite good no peculiar distortion and the mind’s and crisp too, downside is the high’s which are a little flat.
Brainwavz Alpha IEM (23$)
Simply the best at this price range these are the best that you can get. The soundstage is enormous along with the bass depth and clarity of every little detail that you will miss occasionally.
Senheiser CX 180
A pure monitor headphone with accurate responsiveness and audio detailing. Use these if you want flat sound with incredible or unmatched clarity.
Sound Magic PL30/Sound Magic E30 (34$/39$)
They both have the same sound clean and clear sound with a little hint on the bass and good soundstage, but the difference is that by looks pl30 is leading with 1%- 2% decrement on the sound side than the E30. The E30 is more comfy wearing whereas the PL30 provides more noise reduction.
Brainwavz M5 (35$)
Yeah, Yeah, these are costly beauties so why buy this? Well ever heard of a golden spoon or a basket full of money and honey, this product packs everything. The sound is indefinable it has everything the soundstage is immense the clarity is superb and noise cancellation is great the highs are sparkly and the lows are deep and pumpy and the minds are crisp everything in this package is great.
