Quality In-Ear for less than 30 dollars?

post #1 of 25
Thread Starter 

I went to Amazon Clearance section and saw some cheap IEMS




80 dollar IEMS for 25 dollars? 



Are these any good? 


My budget is 25-30 dollars and the in ear phones i am using right now are apple ones and 10 dollar marshmallow in ear headphones. 


Im not used to buying online but i think this sale saves me about 50 dollars? are these worth buying?


If not can anyone direct me to some others in that price range?

Check Jokers IEM Thread for other options, but the M6P is hard to beat at $20.

Ok thanks but the ones you listed have pretty bad reviews about the sound quality on amazon.


and on jokers thread, most if not all IEMS have a rating of 8/10 so i cant really distinguish the difference

I would check this out




You can get the Monster Jamz for $40 or the Turbine's for $50 and I know you said you only wanted to pay $30 but you could go for the Pro Coppers for $99 you don't get many chances to get a $400 IEM for $99 and they would be the last IEM's you would need for a long while.

Sorry i dont want to buy used earbuds.


So can anyone tell me if the lift audio earbuds look fine? it will cost me around 35 dollars with shipping. I dont think ive ever payed that much for a set of earbuds.

Those aren't "used" earbuds in the outlet shops. They are 'second' goods. But I am guessing you want it all in a nice package and all that.


I wouldn't trust Amazon reviews in regards of earphones (unless they are talking about durability). So, I am placing my money on M6P as well.

no, you can't really wear the m6's or others specifically desiged for over the ear straight down...there are exceptions(tf 10) but generally no

Hey thanks so much for all this help. Im gonna go run and get an amazon card but i just stumbled upon these as well.






Should i get any of these or just stick with the M9?


The first link is supposedly 70 dollars brought down to 20 dollars.


Thank you so much.

I haven't heard the M9's before but i have heard the Skullcandys and i would stay pretty far away from them.
