Hi EVeryone

I'm looking for a pair of in-ear headphone they need to be iPhone compatible, by that I mean need a microphone attached.

Can anyone recommend a real decent pair for around £50?

Thanks

I Have the Sennheiser CX300II phones and they are very good indeed for £35-40 (think that's what I paid...) and think they do an Ipod / IPhone friendly version too..

I was actually thinking of the Klipsch Image S4i, you can't really compare them to the apple in ears can't you?

Play.com still have Klipsch s4 for far less and they are for the money unbeatable imho certainly at the £17.99 I paid for them although they are around £27 last time I looked as the word soon spread but still good price for the sound they produce:smashin:

Play.com - Buy Klipsch Image S4 Dynamic / In-Ear Headphones / White online at Play.com and read reviews. Free delivery to UK and Europe!

opps just noted you want ipod compatible ones which cost more if you really need the controls

I am looking for similar as mine are dying.

I currently have a pair of CX300II from Sennheiser, but like a lot of headphones they have L shaped plugs and this is breaking from being pulled upwards when you walk around

SoundMAGIC E10 look like a potential options

Any other suggestions?

the Sound Magic E10's get rave reviews in what hi-fi.

if i was to get a pair of budget(ish) in ears, then these would be the ones.

I would buy a decent pair but i seem to kill them pretty quickly. Keeping headphones in boxes etc just isn't practical for day to day commuter useage.

I brought the sound magic e10, but kind of disappointed with them. The sound is ok enough but they are bleeding uncomfortable, mainly because they have a relatively sharp edge at the back of the phones that keeps rubbing against the wall of my ear.

The radiopaq seem to have the same design, which puts me off them.

Back to drawing board.

Hughes direct on amazon is selling senn's cx880 much better than cx300-ii (own both)

The 880's require a bit of burn in though, had some pl50's and didnt really like them, or triple-fi 3's too bright for me.

Id say s4i's £50 or cx880 £40

They are the same as the E10s but with a remote and mic. Don't really use the mic, but having the remote is very handy. Quality is very good. Really pleased with them. Well worth the extra £15.

Have to second the rec on the cx880's. I upgraded from the cx300 II's and coudnt believe the difference, particularly as I managed to get them for three quid less than I'd paid for the 300's.

I've owned a pair of the klipsh s4 and whilst I really liked them they lasted less than 3 months and I didn't use them very often. So I would look elsewhere. Having said that many of the reviews I read seem to suggest many earbuds suffer a similar build quality issue so I'd say it's a bit of a lottery. I'm looking at the e10s as a replacement for my s4

Hello all,

I have looked around but struggled to find a definitive answer

Does anyone know if the E10ms work with anything other than Apple Products?

Its a shame if not

Thanks Guys

I agree- I also have the SE215 and I rate them- they were a replacement for the SE210s which broke within warrenty, the SE215's are far better, feel much sturdier and fit better around my ears. Sound blocking is second to none, doubt you'll find a better brand for noise iscolation actually. The tone and clarity is also great too.

Ive just bought some Sony MDx Ex500s due to the newer 510S being a bit bass less, I also have some new beyerdynamics 101s which i have to say get my vote awsome set of in ears crisp lovely Bass and light.

Just so you know i also have a pair of Etymotic 4P micropros, which are Crap, compared to the beyers.
I cant vouch for any of the others reviewed but ive been hunting for a good set of In ears for ages, and the beyers have hit the nail on the head.

I do also fancy though trying the Creative Aurvana 3s.

Ive looked at the Shure ones, and have a pair od 840s closed Back cans, but i stayed away from the in ears due to the reviews of the wire breaking and Sure being funny to work with. But that was only because i was looking at the 400 quid 535s and for that cash i want special treatment LOL.

If it was my Money id go

Sony MDR 510s 39.99 on Play
beyerdynamics 101s 66Ish
Creative Aurvana 3s 99 ish
or top of the shop the Sony ex 600 or the 1000s
