The Hibiki MKII is a great choice for commuters due to its fuller low-end, tough build and strong noise isolation.
I can’t recommend the E2000 more, this is one of those rare instances where an earphone truly outperforms its price class rather than simply placing well within it.
Final’s new affordable in-ear provides a warm yet detailed sound that finds an easy listen and surprising technicality.
Newcomer Ourart shoot for the stars with their Ti7, an innovative earbud that sounds almost as good as it looks. Their laid-back tones won’t be to everyone’s liking, but beyond their thickness lies some convincing technicality.
You would be excused for not knowing about OVC, but their new $50 active noise cancelling in-ear might be worth a look if not a listen.
