I'm currently on a budget and looking for earbuds that fit my need. I have a few in my sight, but am wondering if there are better ones. My criteria may be a little hard to meet: symmetrical cables, decent bass (but doesn't have to match Klipsch S4's amount of bass), mind-blowing clarity, and durability that's for everyday use. I do not prefer Klipsch buds because of their peculiar eartips. I would also like a case included and a 3-button Apple-style remote, but these two are optional.
Currently, I'm looking at the JVC HAFXC80 and the Sennheiser CX 280 on Amazon.com. They both sell for less than $40, and meet my criteria except for the optional 3-button remote. (but the Sennheisers have a volume slider)
So, any suggestions?
