Need help choosing a pair of earphones with in-line mic for Android (Nexus 4) < 150$

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Hi, I'm looking for a pair of earphones with in-line mic that I can use on the move in conjunction with my Nexus 4 and Cowon J3. These earphones would complement the ATH-M50 that I've been using for the past few years.

 

Music I listen to: rock, pop, big band jazz and orchestral

I want them to be travel-friendly (enough isolation for the bus/train/metro/plane) and reasonably durable.

 

Based on some reviews, I've identified these choices* :

- MEElectronics A161p

- Audiofly AF56

- Steelseries Flux in-ear

- JVC FRD80

- Klipsch S4A - II

 

What should I buy?

*I'm open to other suggestions as well.

If you like a V shaped sound signature, check out the Tpeos H-100J. It's a hybrid (dynamic+BA driver) IEMs with android controls. What's your budget?

It seems to be an interesting choice, but there's no resellers for it in my home country, Canada.

I started with a budget of 150$ in mind (as stated in the title), but I could stretch it to 200$ if I fall upon a great pair with interesting features as a replaceable cable.

I didn't have the chance to listen to a diverse set of headphones/earphones, thus I can't firmly say that I prefer a V-shaped signature, but it seems to fit my needs quite well if I take into account the level of satisfaction I get from my ATH-M50.
