2013 Holiday Earphone Buyer’s Guide – the Best Earphones Under $50

Earphones as gifts

An earphone can make for a great holiday gift for yourself or another. Ditching stock earbuds or upgrading from a lesser model can make a huge difference in musical enjoyment while additional features such as noise isolation or built-in headset functionality can make a commute much more comfortable and convenient. For many users it makes sense to own multiple sets of headphones for different purposes.

These days you really don’t have to spend a fortune to give the gift of great sound with an in-ear earphone – in the past year or two there have been quite a few fantastic releases costing less than $50.

Great – which ones do I get?

There are thousands of earphones out there and choosing between them can be tough. That’s where The Headphone List comes in. As usual, we have simplified things with just a few top picks out of the 100s of earphones we have tested for each of five different criteria – sound quality, noise isolation, durability, fit appropriate for small ears, and sports use. If you need a recommendation with another purpose in mind, just let us know in the comments below.

Willing to spend more or looking for a particular sound? Check out our more expansive earphone buyer’s guide, which groups sets by sound signature and offers options across different budgets.

Lastly, keep in mind the importance of a good fit with your earphones. Most in-ears were designed to maintain a tight seal with the ear canal and their sound quality will suffer tremendously with a poor fit. Check out our earphone fit guide for tips on wearing your in-ear headphones properly.

Sound Quality

The most important selection criteria, and with good reason. Our picks here are earphones that blew us away with their sound and, at <$50, their value for money as well.

VSonic VSD1S
VSonic VSD1S

Top Pick: VSonic VSD1S

VSonic’s brand recognition stateside leaves a lot to be desired but the name is very familiar to audiophiles in Asia, and deservingly so.

Their newest earphone, the VSD1S, offers an accurate, yet energetic sound with good bass impact, fantastic clarity, and a spacious soundstage. It even incorporates an articulating nozzle feature never before seen on an earphone in this price range. I prefer the VSD1S to its sister earphone, the VSD1, for its smoother treble.

Overall, the VSD1S offers 90% of the performance of VSonic’s highly-regarded GR07 Bass Edition model at 1/4 the price. Enough said.

SteelSeries Flux In-Ear
SteelSeries Flux In-Ear

Best Earphones With Mic/Remote: SteelSeries Flux In-Ear

This in-ear earphone from gaming peripheral manufacturer SteelSeries took me by surprise with its audio quality, which easily puts it among the very best earphones in its class. It’s a great all-rounder with a warm tonal character, punchy and extended bass, good treble energy, and excellent clarity.

The small, comfortable form factor, good noise isolation, and an inline microphone and single-button remote for smartphones and other devices make these one of the best values in portable audio.

Philips SHE3590
Philips SHE3590

Budget Option: Philips SHE3590 / SHE3580

Small and comfortable, these Philips earphones fit almost any ear size and cost less than a good lunch. They may look like dollar-store buds but the sound tells a completely different story, easily holding its own against earphones costing many times more with excellent presence across the frequency spectrum, enhanced bass, and crisp, clean treble. Sometimes called “Music Colors”, they come in several color combinations and are the perfect stocking stuffer for music fans of all ages.

JVC HA-FX101
JVC HA-FX101

Basshead Option: JVC HA-FX101

JVC’s “Xtreme Xplosives” earphones are a bargain find for the bass-obsessed, combining deep and powerful bass with prominent treble. The sound is competent on the whole, if slightly harsh compared to pricier sets, but one thing is certain – the bass is fantastic for the price.

The newer FX101 model uses a smaller driver than the original FX1X and fits more ears comfortably. It comes in several colors and a version with a built-in microphone and remote, the FR201, is also available.

Noise Isolation

When using earphones outside, External noise is killer not only for listening enjoyment, but hearing safety as well. Hearing damage occurs due to a combination of volume and exposure, and noisy environments can encourage listening at dangerously high volumes. A well-isolating in-ear earphone can do a better job of blocking out noise than an Active Noise-Canceling headphone at a much lower price.

Etymotic Ety-Kids
Etymotic Ety-Kids 3

Etymotic Research ETY-Kids

This is a simple one – there’s nothing that isolates like an Etymotic, and in this price range that means the ETY-Kids. This particular model promotes hearing safety with a combination of immense noise isolation and volume-limiting impedance.

The earphones are also well-built and stay true to the Etymotic brand with sound that is clear, accurate, and neutral, though for some listeners perhaps lacking in desired bass presence.

The ETY-Kids name itself may be off-putting to some but there is nothing childish about the design – or sound – of these earphones. Volume-limiting aside, the ETY-Kids are simply a great option for keeping music in and noise out.

The ETY-Kids 5 is a stereo earphone while the ETY-Kids 3 is a headset model with microphone and 3-button remote.

Durability

Admittedly, we are not always as careful with our electronics as we would like to be, and while it’s always a good idea to treat earphones with care, a little extra durability can be worth a premium to many listeners. Here are a few sets that we think will survive abuse better than the competition.

RHA MA-350
RHA MA-350

RHA MA350

Hailing from Scotland, the MA350 by RHA is built to take a beating. From the from aircraft grade aluminium housings to the fabric-sheathed cable, the MA350 is rock solid.

The earphone is no slouch in the sound department, either, delivering deep, impactful bass akin to that of the $100 Monster Turbines at a fraction of the price. Add to that RHA’s 3-year warranty and the MA350 is a winner all around.

The MA450i, a similar-sounding earphone with microphone and 3-button remote, is also available.

Philips SHO2200
Philips SHO2200

Philips O’Neill SHO2200 Tread

The Philips O’Neill product line is designed for active use, and the SHO2200 Tread model was built from the ground up for the sole purpose of withstanding abuse.

The Tread delivers exactly what it promises – a bulletproof construction that puts most other earphones to shame. It may not sound as rich and full as the less expensive Philips SHE3590 or the RHA MA-350 mentioned above, but the Tread is sure to be a hit with those who are fed up with replacing broken earphones.

Dunu DN-22M Detonator
Dunu DN-22M Detonator

Dunu DN-22M Detonator

In the few years Dunu has been in business, their earphones have become synonymous with great attention to detail – the packaging, accessories, and design consistently surpass expectations at every price point.

The Detonator model boasts the fantastic build quality Dunu has become known for while producing sound that is warm and smooth. Underpinned by appropriately explosive bass response, it is an easy sound to enjoy and a difficult one to dislike.

The Detonator also boasts an inline microphone and remote, and the packaging makes it an excellent $50 gift. As a bulletproof entry-level smartphone headset, it’s a tough one to beat.

For those who don’t need a microphone, the less expensive DN-12 Trident model is also worthy of recommendation.

Small Ears

Perhaps a less well-defined category, but still a question that gets asked over and over – which in-ears best fit small ears? There are many that may work, but our picks in this category are especially tiny and should fit nearly all ear shapes and sizes.

Soundmagic PL50
Soundmagic PL50

Soundmagic PL50

Soundmagic has been in the earphone business for many years, consistently delivering products that offer solid performance for the price. The PL50 model in particular is notable for two things. First, it uses balanced armature drivers, which are pricier and rarely found at this price point. This gives the PL50 a balanced, smooth sound with a focus on the midrange in place of the more conventional bass focus of most other entry-level sets.

Second, the PL50 is tiny – the balanced armature drivers, originally developed for use in hearing aids, weigh very little and take up no room at all, permitting the ergonomic shape and low profile of the earphones. The PL50 is worn “over-the-ear” style, with the cable looped up over the ear, and is one of the most unobtrusive earphones we’ve tried.

Spider TinyEar
Spider TinyEar

Spider TinyEar

Designed from the ground up for those with small ears, the TinyEar comes with a selection of smaller eartips and utilizes a smooth, tapered design. Tiny and lightweight, it will fit pretty much anyone comfortably.

With a bright tonal character, the TinyEar is not the best-sounding earphone in the price range, but clarity is good and the design simply works for smaller ears. After all, what good is a great-sounding earphone that doesn’t fit?

An EMic version with a mic + remote is also available.

Sports

In a sports earphone we look mostly for comfort and a secure fit. Sound that is not dull or boring is important as well – a bit of extra audio quality can go a long way towards making that last mile easier to push through.

MEElectronics M6
MEElectronics M6

MEElectronics M6

The MEElectronics M6 has undergone quite a few changes of the past several years but underneath it’s still the same earphone I fell in love with back in 2009.

The combination of an over-the-ear form factor and flexible memory wire keeps the earphones in place. It may take a day or two to get the hang of wearing the M6 but once fitted correctly it provides a comfortable, secure fit and robust sound with good bass punch and crisp treble. It’s not the most refined-sounding set, but it’s definitely the best sports earphone we’ve heard in this price range.

Available in seven colors, the M6 is sure to be a hit with joggers, gym-goers, and anyone else who values an earphone that stays in place. A headset version with microphone and remote, the M6P, is also available.

  1. Hmm I found out vsd3s has sound similar to westone 4R , which has been set to be a bit lacking in bass I hope that’s not the case with vsd3s because I listen to a lot of edm and bass tracks and thus it shouldn’t sound lean.

    What’s your opinion ?

  2. VSD1S sounds somewhat different from the GR06 – the midrange is less emphasized relative to the bass and treble. I would consider the similarly-priced VSD3S, which is a little more balanced. Still not a GR06 clone sound-wise, but it should be a better choice in this case.

  3. Hey joker!

    Recently my Vsonic gr06 left ear piece gave up after serving me a good 1.8 years and so was looki for a replacement .

    Would have a preference for similar sound signature with priority of sound quality at highest.

    I was thinking about vsonic VSD1S . Please share your opinion.

    Budget of course less than 50$ and aim to get most value for money IEM for sound.

    Thanks a lot ;).

  4. The VSD3S is a great earphone but it doesn’t really sound like an E10 and doesn’t have the best sound signature for vocals. The midrange is less forward and it’s more sibilance-prone than the E10.

  5. Mr ljoker,

    Sorry to bother you. I Need your suggestion agn. I read through your link (Kc06/vsd3s/Havi b3 comparison) and saw that you have rated VSD3S pretty high. Of all these 3 earphones, only VSD3S is locally available at my place for abt 47$. Do you think its a good buy and can put up with vocal centric tracks?

  6. Mr ljoker,

    Thanks a lot for your valuable suggestion. One more thing mr.ljoker, is KC06 really bass light? well, i’m not a basshead by any means.. but would definitely love a bit of sub bass rumble (not a bass cannon level though). I just want the sub bass to be there when the track calls for it. I read that KC06A has a better low end compared to KC06. Is it a better option over KC06? or would you still suggest KC06 over KC06A?

  7. That actually doesn’t tell me very much about the type of sound you like because I’ve never tried the TTPOD. The E10 is a good earphone, well-balanced and fairly smooth, with punchy bass. I like the newer Ostry KC06 for that type of sound. It also has a stronger and more forward midrange, but that’s the opposite of the Piston so maybe it will be even more to your liking. Review here: https://theheadphonelist.com/brief-impressions-vsonic-vsd3s-ostry-kc06-havi-b3-pro/

  8. Hello ljoker,
    I’m a huge fan of your reviews. I do always take your opinion from your reviews before buying any earphones. 🙂
    Well coming to the point, i am planning to buy an IEM under 70-100$ (Lower the better :D). I need your suggestion on the same. I really dont know what kind of sound signature i prefer (w.r.t audiophile terms like warm, dark etc) but i hope you can understand from the following references.

    I had previously owned few IEMS (sub 50$) of which i really loved the soundmagic E10 and i enjoyed it ( although, I did find the E10 laking a tiny bit in the treble area, but i could live with it) for a long time until i lost it one day. My next upgrade was Piston 2.0(not counterfeits) which sounded really good but, was not something which i enjoyed. i really found the mids to be lacking in it. I dunno why, i just couldn’t enjoy the pistons the way i enjoyed my E10’s. So, later upgraded to TTPOD T1E and was ‘blown away’ with the sound quality and sound stage.. it was every bit what i wanted my earphones to be.. but, unfortuanately there was a channel imbalance after a few days of usage and was totally diasappointed. I couldnt claim the warranty either as i live in india and i had imported it via aliexpress. Now i do not want to go for TTPOD T1E again just cos of the fear of those IEM’s dying on me again.

    I hope you might have gotten an idea regarding my prefernce in sound signature 🙂
    Request you to kindly suggest me a good IEM under 70 to 100$ (lower the better as i will have to pay additional custom fee) that suits my sound preference. (Also, i do not prefer ear percing treble).

    On a side note, i really request you to review the T1E’s. I find them simply amazing for the price.

    Thanks again for your wonderful reviews. Awaiting your response,

    Regards
    Nickrulez13789

  9. Can’t say how either compares to the ES18 as I haven’t tried that one, but I do consider the Piston to be better than the Twinwoofers and just about anything else in that price range. It does fall under a “fun” sound, too.

  10. I am looking for an replacement over my soundmagic es18 , what would u recommend, xiaomi piston or sennheiser CX 180 or tekfusion twinwoofers or some other IEM in similar price bracket(under 30$).main use to listen EDM,metal,and some pop tracks.would like a fun IEM.thanks
    (btw special thx to your year old recommendation of vsonic gr06 ,they are running perfect touchwood and would probably give me another 2-3 years of service 🙂 )

  11. Unfortunately I only have experience with the Xiaomi Piston 2 out of those three. It’s a great headset and I do think it’s better than the SHE3590 (considering also it has a bassier sound signature), but not by a huge margin.

  12. Hey joker! Im looking for a budget earphone n soo far my top picks are cowon em1, xiaomi piston 2 and soumdmagic es18. I dont know which one to choose as all these 3 are good but im leaning towards the cown em1 because of the flat cable n good looks but still not sure. Would you mind recommending the best out of all these.

  13. Just got a pair and it sounds just as expected: a tad more balanced than the Phillips but lacking clarity compared to the Phillips. I guess I got a good pair. Not bad for the price, very comfortable.

  14. I’ve had two and both sounded pretty bad, but in different ways. I think the quality control is just really bad.

  15. Hey |joker|
    Have you heard of the Panasonic RP-HJE120s? I hear it’s a really good budget option for just around $6. I’ve heard it’s like the Phillips SHE3580 but more balanced.

  16. i have the sennheisers, these are actually the second ones for me. they broke down, had to buy an another pair cause they’re just awesome. recommended for sure.

  17. Unfortunately out of those the Xiaomi is the only one I’ve tried. It’s an easy earphone to recommend for the price, but I don’t know how it compares to the other two you’re considering.

  18. Hey man, thank you for these helpful reviews and taking time to answer.
    I need an earphone to listen mostly to music (trance), for like $30.
    I got three options available:
    – Sennheiser CX 300-II
    – Xiaomi Piston 2.1 (From Xiaomi Mobile)
    – OnePlus Silver Bullets (From OnePlus One)
    Can you recommend which is better, please?
    Thank you.

  19. Very strange – appreciate the feedback. Don’t think they’ll be making it into this year’s guide.

    I would imagine the MA350 would be a little more durable for lack of extra “moving parts” – extra solder joints in the remote and such.

  20. FYI – 2 of the 3 pairs of MA450i IEMs I purchased have since been exchanged via warranty. I don’t know if it was a bad batch or not. RHA responded quickly but I was a bit surprised.

  21. The E10 is definitely a good one for your uses. It’s got a nice and spacious sound, clear, not too much bass. Fits the bill very well.

  22. Hi,
    Nice description list! I am looking for quality earphones under $50. I’m looking earbuds for soft music and movies. I like clean natural and punchy sound. Could you please suggest me any headphone? I read good reviews about SoundMAGIC e10 and sennheiser cx 300ii. What would you suggest?

  23. 1. I am equally comfortable wearing over-the-ear and cable-down sets so I can’t answer that seeing as it’s no trouble for me. If you’ve never had a proper over-the-ear earphone before and are willing to go into it with an open mind and give it time to grow on you, I don’t see why not. It really can make for a more secure and less intrusive fit, especially if you wear your cables down your back.

    2. VSonic VSD3S is probably the top competitor but it uses a proprietary socket so the state of the replacement cable market for it is a little unclear at this point. Another option is the Onkyo IE-HF300, which is worn cable-down and has detachable cables. It lacks the solid feel and the noise isolation of the Shures and VSonics, though, and doesn’t sound any better despite being more expensive.

  24. Joker, I’m considering the Shure SE215s. My biggest concern is the “over the ear” placement, which I have traditionally avoided in earphones, for comfort reasons.

    However, I’m attracted to the replaceable cables, something that is a big feature when paying a 100 bucks (not a small sum for me).

    My questions:

    1. Are the 215s worth the over the ear placement troubles?
    2. Are there any other great IEMs in the $75 – $120 range that offer the Shure performance with detachable cables?

  25. Thanks for the reply!
    Yes, I have always thought my preference for the earpods has been strange, given that the majority of headfi-ers prefer the other sets that I own. I’ll be sure to re-listen to the e10s and also consider the other factors you mentioned as well.
    Thanks again for the helpful response, and good luck with the website!
    Jason

  26. I’m honestly not sure why you like the earpods so much. They are good earbuds but still have a very earbud-like sound to them – severe bass roll-off, for one, and fairly forward upper mids as well: http://www.innerfidelity.com/images/AppleEarPods.pdf .

    There are a couple of things that could be going on – you might be having trouble getting a good seal with in-ears; your tablet might have high impedance at the headphone jack, which will mess with the sound of some in-ears in a bad way. I would try to figure that out first before spending any more money on in-ears – out of the IEMs you have I would tag the E10 as the one that really shouldn’t sound thin or harsh. It could be that in-ears just aren’t for you – you certainly wouldn’t be the first – but to be absolutely sure you can try a nice an warm-sounding one like a Sony MH1C (about $28 on ebay) and see if it still sounds harsh and/or thin.

  27. Hi Joker,

    Thanks so much for all of the reviews on iems; they’ve helped me, a casual listener, decide on buying budget-level earphones without buying too many pairs to try out.

    So I find myself really enjoying the sound signature of the apple earpods; they sound so much more punchy, airy, and natural compared to my other sets (jvc fxt90, vsonic gr06, soundmagic e10, and monoprice 8320)(all burnt in for 50+ hours of noise and frequency sweeps). I have no external DAC or amp, and I run all of my sets through the 3.5mm port on my android tablet. In my opinion the gr06, e10, and 8320 all sounded too thin and un-natural; and the fxt90, while more detailed, sounded way too un-natural with extremely harsh treble.

    So my question is this: what step should i take in upgrading from my bare earpods?

    I was considering buying an external DAC and amp, but i don’t know how much that would improve them.

    Also, judging from my description of sound that I received from my other sets, do you think the problem is just bad isolation? After experimenting for hours with different tips, I now use a small silicone tip with foam under the flange. As a result, I have been able to block out basically all outside noise, but the sound of my other iems still remains un-natural and thin in my opinion.

    (one last question sorry >_<) What set (iem, earbud, or even full-sized headphones) do you suggest as an upgrade that has the same (or similar) sound signature to the earpods. I quite like the natural, airy, and full sound; and I suspect it is because of the ventilation ports (please correct me if I'm wrong).

    I understand the apple earpods are regarded as some of the lowest-quality sets out there, so I apologize if you have a tough time understanding why i enjoy them so much more than the other sets I own.

    I would greatly appreciate if you could address these questions, as I've been having a tough time browsing through all of the reviews of headfi and amazon to take the next step with another purchase.

    Thanks again for the detailed reviews and helpful comparisons,
    Jason

  28. tanks, waiting for the review AKG 376 and brainwavz S1,
    PD: I notice the difference if I buy a ROCK-IT SOUNDS R-50 regarding my current Flux, next month?

  29. Yes, the Flux is a low-sensitivity earphone. Realistically, if you have a decent phone or mp3 player, all it means is that you have to raise the volume by a notch or two to compensate. An amp is not really a must, though it obviously helps with the volume.

    I have an AKG K376 and it’s pretty good, but really expensive here in the US (over $100). Haven’t tried the K374 or K328 yet. I have tried the R1 but didn’t think it was as good as the Brianwavz S1 or the older M3. Hope to review some more “globally available” earphones in the future.

  30. Hi ljokerl , I’m from peru and my first decent in ear were AKG 328, I was happy with them and now I updated looking a little better sound, acquired the STEELSERIES FLUX (normal version not PRO) – (I saw your review) but I have noticed several differences and less low power, low volume.
    I wonder if you need to buy a Dac or amp to use with my young galaxy and take out their full potential? excuse my bad English

    month to buy you brainwavz R1, notare the difference (better sound?)

    Might include in your next reviews: AKG 328 / AKG 374 / BRAINWAVZ R1, these are widely used in Latin America peru,

    since many of the models that you look are not available at these locations

    TANKS

  31. I usually go accurate, decided to go more energetic (and save some money), went with the Piston 2. Thanks for your help 🙂

  32. The Piston 2 is warmer and has more powerful bass, but that bass is also boomier and more intrusive. The Flux has tighter bass with less impact but also less bloat. It is overall more balanced and accurate. The mids on the Flux are a little more prominent. Clarity is similar. The treble of the Piston 2 is a little more energetic and natural while the Flux is a touch more forgiving. The presentation of the Piston 2 is better and it remains more open-sounding, despite the bass boost.

  33. Ah, I even checked the site and saw 100-10. It wasn’t until I looked closer that I saw they meant that’s the range of the microphone. Oops.

    I also just saw your review on the Xiaomi Piston 2 on InnerFidelity. How would you compare it to the Flux?

  34. Hey Joker,

    Thanks for the reviews! I was trying to decide between the Steelseries Flux and the VSD1S and thought I landed on the Flux. They seem very similar according to some of your comments with the VSD1S possibly creeping on sibilant, right? I’m on the fence about either but leaned toward the Flux mainly because of the benefit of headset control. However, looking at Flux on Amazon, I noticed the frequency response is 100Hz-10kHz, isn’t that a bit limited with most headphones ranging 20Hz-20kHz? Did you not hear limitations on both ends?

  35. I would go Popular >Tank > GR99 for what you want. The Popular is the most balanced of the bunch aside from the PL30, which is probably a little too mid-centric for your needs. The C12 is too bassy to be called balanced. The PL21 is pretty outdated. Sounds ok but doesn’t have the clarity of the T-Peos.

  36. Hi joker,

    Just have a question for u… can u rate the following and give me your top 3 please.

    1.Signature acoustics c12 elements wooden ( getting it for 2k indian rupees a steal because its priced at around $50 otherwise)
    2.VSonic GR99
    3. soundmagic pl21
    4.soundmagic pl30
    5.t-peos tank / popular

    My usage, around 4-5 hours of daily usage while commuting, want a good cable quality. will use it mostly with my phone galaxy note2
    watch a lot of movies, hear songs, connect to my laptop for movies and songs.

    want decent bass,good and balanced highs, lows and treble.
    comfort is important. good sound quality, I also want it to last long as i am investing more than my budget.
    please do reply at the earliest.
    THANKS

  37. RHA MA350 built for reliability? Someone is joking. Over the last year I had to claim warranty for 3 of these – every time they would lose connectivity near headphone jack. Luckily RHA provide 3 year warranty, so now I am on my 4th pair and wondering how long these will last. Thing is – I don’t listen to them that much and usually it is not on the move – so I have no idea why the cable is snapping so often….

  38. If you can find an MH1C in your price range and don’t mind the annoying cable, by all means go for that. It’s a superb earphone. It’s about 30 USD on ebay: http://bit.ly/1lBeNtx . With that budget I can also recommend the LG QuadBeat F420, if it’s available in your country, and the Xiaomi Piston 2 (beware of counterfeits).

  39. also how would u rate the below earphones and any recommendations??/

    Sony MH1C ( not sure if available in india if yes can u tell me where)
    Sennheiser CX 180
    skull candy series ( eg: smokin buds, inked 2 )
    Cowon EM1
    SoundMAGIC ES 18
    Sony MDR-EX110AP

    this is just a list of headphones tht i no my budget now is max 1.5k to 1.8k indian rupees and as i said a mic wud be a a gr8 option.

  40. Hi joker,

    thank you for ur reply, is this the only earphones tht fit my budget i hav extended my budget as i wanted a decent pair of earphones, how about skull candy earphones ( smokin buds or inked 2) and any idea about cowon em1??? can you give me few more options before i can go for it??
