Hey guys,
 
I was wondering if anyone could recommend a good pair of IEMs with a budget of less than USD$100? Preferably with button controls and mic (iPhone user if that helps).
 
I'm getting a pair for a my girlfriend who listens to mostly mainstream music, pop, hip-hop, the ones you get on radio hits. Prefer warm sounds.
 
She has tiny ear canals and had problems finding ones that fit her. 
 
Thanks!

A lot of people go to these for the under $100 budget IEMs.

Another one (and I know some people hate buying names) is the Bose IE2. It won't have mic and controls unless you pay for the IE2i which is $30 more (not worth it). My girlfriend has the same issue, tiny ears but she uses the small tips that come with them and loves them, so I have to recommend them to you for your girlfriend with the same issue.

SoundMAGIC MP21 - these are great value so you can spend the remainder of the $100 on beer.

Hi! I was looking at the Klipsch S4i myself. But I am not sure if it is small enough, as my girlfriend isn't willing to come with me to test drive some earphones. 
 
I haven't considered the Bose, I might consider them. Thanks!

Hmm, nice I would put that into consideration, downside is the single button... But thanks!

Apple in-ears? Hmm, I have had the older ones (1st generation). They broke far too easily and if I recall correctly they weren't warm. Thanks
