Either you are an audiophile or just want an in-ear headphone that makes you look cool then you came to the right place. I will try to enumerate some good if not the best ear headphones in the market.

There are two types of portable earphones and they are earbuds and in-ear monitors. Earbuds type became popular during the 90s as they were bundled with portable cassette players otherwise known as the walkman. In-ear monitors were first used by musicians and sound engineers during on-stage performance as it blocks outside noises. In-ear headphones are more popular these days because of its good noise reduction feature.

When buying in-ear headphones it’s not always about the price. Not because it is expensive it has a great sound quality. Before you buy try to look for reviews and compare what real users have to say. Look for review sites and forums that have good reputation in reviewing headphones.

What to consider before you buy aside from sound quality?

  • Ear sleeves – There should be at least 3 stock rubber sleeves available with different sizes. You’ll never know what sleeve size fits you until you try.
  • Headphone Jack – 3.5mm is the normal size but some devices require 2.5mm.
  • Mic – If you want to use it with your phone.
  • Cord Durability – One accidental pull can make your headphone useless. Not only the speakers are important, the cord should be able to survive unintentional pull that can lead to faulty wires.
