I'm listening to the sony ex10lp right now. For the price I don't think you can beat them (at least here at $15). They have good bass and even some sub bass when it is needed. The mids are pretty good and the highs have good brightness but not sibilant. The only thing that really lack is wider separation and depth and all the stuff you get with a high price headphone, but that doesn't mean those aren't good. Everything on these is great, just not as great. The build quality is decent and if cared for will probably last a long time, but that is probably where they cut most of their cost. They also don't have any accessories other than tips. So, if you think about it, they might be equivalent to $30 headphones without the accessories. Not sure. But for $15 they are definitely worth it. They have what I would call the sony signature sound, if you know what they're cheap headphone highs sound like you know what i mean. They aren't amazing, but they really have no big flaws. They can seem bright and sometimes dry sounding, but have reasonable balance for the price. :) Just my two cents.
great to know, i was wondering if they were good quality. i can have them for 9 euro, so not expensive at all and it's very interesting... did you, by chance try any other in ear that i've put in the list ? i read good reviews on the philips she series and the jvc hafx1x and was wondering if it was worth spending thoose extra 10 euro
edit : i also added the sony mdr xb21ex in the in ear list
