Looking for budget earbuds/earphones

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

I'm looking for some earbuds or earphones to replace my factory My Touch 3G earphones. (This is what they look like:http://i.ebayimg.com/00/s/NDAwWDUzMA==/z/zH0AAOxyaTxTTYpd/$_12.JPG )

 

I'm not looking for anything high quality as I only use them on my Galaxy S III, so they won't be handled in the best conditions. At most I would spent about $40. They would have to be pretty great to get me to spend $60, but I would rather not.

 

To note, I am pretty custom to using earphones, not so much earbuds. The few times I used earbuds, I found the rubber cups ( Not sure what the part is called) to be strange feeling, but it is probability something  I could grow accustomed to. Just a quick reference, the diameter of my those old earphones are about 1.3 cm, not sure if useful though.

 

The time I generally wear them range from 15 mins to few hours. Occasionally, they will become uncomfortable.

 

I was looking what Sennheiser had, mostly because I am somewhat familiar with their brand. For example I looked (online) at the MX 365, CS 300 II, and for the hell of, the IE 4.

 

I appreciate any suggestions and advice.

I haven't heard them, but the XIaomi Pistons look to be a really good deal. They are a Chinese brand. You can get them from Penon Audio.

I would strongly recommend the Monoprice 8320 variants, if you are not completely opposed to IEMs. They are only $8 and have very good sound for the price. It comes with 3 sizes of flanges for your ear and you can try memory foam tips if those don't work for you.

If you do decide to get them, make sure to burn them in for 24 hours before listening. It makes a huge difference to the sound.
