Top ten in-ear headphones



It used to be the case that those looking for the very best sound quality from their headphone were resigned to the bulkier on-ear design. Today, headphones have come so far that it´s quite possible to get crisp sound from even the smallest of in-ear designs.

It used to be the case that those looking for the very best sound quality from their headphone were resigned to the bulkier on-ear design. Today, headphones have come so far that it's quite possible to get crisp sound from even the smallest of in-ear designs.

Here, we take a look at ten in-ear headphones that are worth the price tag, taking a look at what each of them has to offer.

1. Sennheiser MX 365 £9.99

When you're looking for an entry level pair of headphones, the last thing you want is a pair that feels like it's due to fall apart. Great build quality comes as standard with Sennheiser products and their entry level MX 365 is no exception.

2. Goji Tinchy Stryder £15.99

There's no shortage of rapper-endorsed headphones on the market today but it's no secret that they have made a habit of occupying the higher end of the market. Tinchy Stryder's range looks to cater to those looking for a budget pair of headphones, and they do the job very well.

3. SMS Audio Street 50 Cent Headphones

50 Cent's in-ear offering sits neatly between Tinchy Stryder's range and Dr Dre's in both price and quality. The design of the SMS Audio headphone is subtle and attractive, but it's the crisp sound which really makes them worth the investment.

4. Monster DNA £39.95

The Monster headphones offer a great combination of style and sound quality. They offer something a little out of the ordinary and deserve their place on a list of the top ten in ear headphones.

5. Skullcandy Ink'd from £11.99

These headphones from Skullcandy offer great value, with a dash of style. The 11mm power driver is able to give better sound quality than you'd expect for the price and the range of colours is an added bonus.

6. Beats by Dr Dre Tour from £94.97

Beats headphones need little to no introduction anymore. They've established themselves as one of the best in the world of audio and the price tag reflects that, somewhat casually.

7. Sony MDREX50 £8.49

Sony promises quality, no matter what the product is. They've got plenty of experience making top quality headphones and are more than qualified to create an attractive pair of entry level headphones - this is it.

8. Sennheiser CX 299 £29.99

If you respect the attention to detail that comes with a Sennheiser product and are looking for something a little more powerful than those at entry level, the CX 299 is likely to be a good choice for you.

9. Roccat Vire

These headphones are a great choice for those looking for a pair to use with their smartphone. Featuring an in-line microphone and noise cancelling speakers, these offer outstanding practicality, not to mention great clarity of sound.

10. Monster iSport Intensity £79.95

Those who use their headphones for sport need a few tweaks to be made to the design, and Monster have addressed each of them. Not only are these great headphones resistant to sweat but they won't fall out your ears when you're running around the block. Perfect!
