Good IEM's for under $50

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

I'm looking for a good pair of earphones that don't short out on one side, which has happened a lot to my past, cheap earphones (skullcandy ink'd, sony, jvc marshmellow,) 
I listen to a wide variety of music, but mostly electro house/techno. I also listen to music by Imagine Dragons, Coldplay, and The Neighbourhood - Sweater Weather. 

 

I am not an audiophile, but I am looking for a fairly balanced sound (does not have to be perfectly balanced) with a clear bass that is not overpowering like the Beats. No muddy sound would be good too. It would also be good if the mids and highs aren't noticablly compromised. I won't use them to run, but mostly just to walk at the mall, bus, and music at home too. No mic or volume controls is not a problem either, since i don't use them.

The only earphones I've seriously looked into is the Sennheiser CX300 II precision enhanced bass. 

 

It would be very nice to have a brand that is reliable too.

 

All recommendations would be appreciated,


Sean

I have a Meelectronics S6P and in terms of durability is very good, a lot of abuse, Gym, stand on it, etc. It have a accentuated bass, not overwhelming but noticeable, sparkly highs and tamed mids. Very good in ear headphone for $40. It is the same M6 but for gym (the s6p is sweat proof and have better durability i think)

Hi,

 

You should consider Vsonic VSD-1

I am on my second pair of Meelectronics M6s.  My first pair died after about 9 months of primarily gym/running use.  My second pair just died today after three months with one side no longer producing any sound.  Seems to be a common problem reported on Amazon so I am reluctant to buy yet another pair.  Anyone have experience with any other IEM brands/models with better durability in this price range?

That is a great option too, the vsd1s is more like the OP requires.
