Best In-Ears for under £30

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 

I'm looking for a decent pair of earphones for a mate who wants to spend under £30. He listen's to wide variety of music spreading through indie to alternative to rock. I have considered the CX 300 II's and would like some decent isolation. Is there any better options than the CX 300 II for the money.

Radius Acoustic style Radheadphones. I have spoted them on iheadphones site in UK some time ago. Can see pictures here

If he can stretch his budget slightly how about the UE Superfi5.

I got them after seeing a recommendation on here they are only £35.25 on dabs.

They much better than CX 300 II's? and do they provide good isolation?

I have Sennheiser CX500s and am very pleased with them. Has anybody else got any suggestions?

I like the SuperFi5 just fine but I still think that the Brainwavz M1 (mp4nation.net) and ViSang R02 (ebay) sound better overall. Should end up costing less, too, even with postage.

Cheers for the advice but which overall do you think is the best out of the two?

post #9 of 19

 Neither. They are very similar in overall sound quality and are made by the same OEM. The R02 has a bit more bass and a bit less treble. The M1 is more balanced.

Guessing these will be much better than the CX 300 II's then. Too bad I already own a pair although that was well before I started Head-Fi.


Cheers for all the advice. :D

Just looking at MP4Direct and the M2 is only $10 more. Is it worth the extra cost?

I believe that's a pre-order price. Regular price is $20 more. The M2 is very similar in sound to the ViSang R02 - a bit more bass/less treble than the M1. It also looks better but IMO the R02 is the best-built of the three.

Sorry I meant MP4 Nation but out of the M1 and the M2 which do you think is the superior?

post #14 of 19

Neither - depends on what you like. I think the M2 is superior in terms of aesthetics/build but sound is a toss-up.

Well although this forum was for a friend I may buy a pair of M2's (I really like IEM's) although when I was browsing the MP4Nation website there were a lot of Soundmagic earphones. How do they perform in this price range?
