Best 10 dollars earbuds?

post #1 of 43
Thread Starter 

I tested 4 earbuds that are inside the 10 dollars price range, Panasonic RP-HV152, Sony MDR-E10LP, Sony MDR-E818LP, Philips SHE2640. Sony MDR-E818LP is by far the best out of all 4. I think it is well worth the price and the sound quality can rival low end in ears. Is it the best 10 dollar earbuds around?

You should try the monoprice 8320, i've heard very good things about them around here.

I have the Sony MDR E-828. It seems like it might be a bit better than the E818, but probably not that much different. The E828 has plenty of bass, but also has audible distortion. If you are willing to try an IEM, I think the JVC Riptidz($8) sounds much better than the E828.

I'll second the monoprice 8320 for this price. Just get some other tips for them and you're golden.

same thing with e818, plenty of bass, i didnt hear distortion tho, clarity is pretty good tho beaten by my etymotic research hf 5 when i a/b them (of course, big price gap), ill see about the jvc and the monoprice. and for iems, i also heard some very good things about meelectronics, their iems look pretty nice for the price, i dont own any product from them so i wont comment on the sound.

How about Sennheiser MX400? An oldie that you still can find and if you put donut foam pads on it, you can get pretty good SQ for the price...

The MX400 is ancient. It is very bass deficient. I haven't heard the MX270, however I have a feeling it is probably much better than the MX400. The MX270 is a bit over $10 though.

But I still prefer it to the MX760...

The MP8320 sound nothing like a sub $10 earphone. Nothing close. Throw them on a small amp and I guarantee you. They will leave you slack jawed.

Try out a Philips SHE3580 as well. Both are excellent cheapos. The bass end on the SHE3580 is some of the best quality you will ever hear on anything.

+4 for the monoprice. Everytime I put them on, I'm simply floored that I got them for $7.

Haha! You see what I meant man? The slightly eq'ed MP8320 trumps the TF10
