In the search for a great IEM with inline mic under $50 I've come up with a shortlist. I'd love to see what the audiophiles prefer to use with their smartphones on the go. Please feel free to add any not included here. Thanks!

Did anybody try the Xears A330M?
post #3 of 5

I've used the Xears XE200PRO with my HTC one X+, and I absolutely loved it. 

They've now got the detachable cables for iPhone or Android with their higher end earphones.

I've have the xba-1s and they are mid-centric. The isolation is good but the sound sinature is not for me. I like the nuforce ne600x more. They are a little bit bass heavy IMO. I've also heard the e10s, they are more like balance in sound signature but the bass is the most dominant though. In my case, i'd personally go for the m6 or the r1s because i like the over the ear style. About the others you mentioned, i havent heard of those.

And also, consider the nuforce ne700x and ne770x. I think they are better than the ne600x.
