I’ve noticed that earphones in the $100-$150 range are let down by the sound quality more often than expected – maybe 1 in 3 are worth recommending on sound alone. This is not at all the case with the Brainwavz R3
The VSonic GR07 Classic represents a cut in price but not quality for the acclaimed GR07. Beware of some sellers passing the Classic off as the GR07 mkII.
With its comfortable form factor, sturdy construction, and headset functionality, the T-Peos Rich200 offers excellent practicality and matching audio performance.
The Brainwavz S1 combines plentiful bass and strong treble to deliver a lively, engaging sound with a popular v-shaped sound signature.
The NarMoo S1 is a dual dynamic driver earphone with a powerful, likable sound. While bass control and clarity are limited by the plentiful bass quantity, both impress in comparison with other similarly-tuned sets.
While higher-end in-ears can point out where the audio quality of the Xiaomi Piston 2 falls slightly short, the dearth of choices among full-featured Android headsets makes the Piston 2 a bargain, and a must-have for any Android user.
As far as reasonably-priced earphones go, the T-Peos D200R has a lot going for it – sturdy build, headset functionality, and a sonic signature that makes all the right concessions.
The NarMoo R1M is an excellent first effort, offering pretty much everything one could want from a budget earphone – a solid construction, built-in mic and remote, and the ability to select between three levels of bass ranging from “basshead” to “mild enhancement”.
The Astrotec AX-35 is a dynamic + single BA hybrid earphone that utilizes a Knowles ED armature driver and competes with the likes of the T-Peos H-100 and Dunu DN-900, albeit at a significantly more attractive price point.
