Top 8 | In-Ear Headphones for iPhone

Headphones seem to be more and more popular these days, though I’ve noticed a distinct leaning towards the over the ear variety rather than the in ear ones. Once upon a time it was the white Apple earbuds that become fashionable and that everyone had to have, but these days that seems to have been replaced by the premium models offered by Dr. Dre’s Beats Electronics, of course recently purchased by Apple. And if you thought that the Apple headphones from back in the day cost a lot of money, then wait until you see the price of these! That said, there is still something of a market for in ear headphones for the iPhone, but one quick glance at Amazon will tell you that there are actually so many available that it becomes almost overwhelming to choose. The good thing is that most of them are relatively affordable, but still offer a great level of sound quality, which is great for those on a budget such as a student. They typically don’t last as long as a good pair of over the ear headphones, but you pay for what you get! Check out our favorite in ear headphones for the iPhone and then feel free to share with us your choices in the comments section below!

8. Amazon Premium Headphones ($18.99)

Amazon Premium Headphones

I guess one good place to start would be with the basic headphones offered by Amazon, since you can’t really go wrong with a simple, affordable option. Amazon have made something of a name for themselves in recent years, offering simple options at good prices when it comes to hardware. This is the case with their excellent USB portable charger for the iPhone, which falls under their Amazon Basics line of products. Unfortunately, this one is considered a Premium offering so you’ll still have to pay around $20 for the privelege. Still, it’s a nice safe option and you know that they will outlast some of the other products mentioned below. – Buy from Amazon

7. JBL E10 ($29.99)

JBL E10

The JBL E10s are another excellent alternative at a fairly affordable price. The bass is fairly tight or at lest balanced, since it doesn’t offer the same low notes as you might get from a pair of Beats headphones. So, this could be considered a drawback but won’t be a problem unless you’re listening exclusively to stuff with thumpingly low bass lines such as rap music. I’ve also noted that the E10s do tend to fall down slightly when presented with a harsh treble, though that might be something to do with the quality of my MP3 files! Perhaps one of our readers could confirm. – Buy from Amazon

6. Sennheiser MX 365 ($16.95)

Sennheiser MX 365

The Sennheiser MX 365 is a great option if you’re the kind of listener that would prefer a pair of non sealed in ear headphones. Or, those that do not exactly plug themselves into your ear to drown out all the surrounding noise. They do offer a better level of sound quality than the default Apple ones, but the scratchy foam pads they come with can be annoying. If you use them in the office and need a pair of affordable in ear headphones that will also leave you aware of what’s going on around you and able to hear when people talk to you, then these are a great pick.  – Buy from Amazon

5. Brainwavz Delta ($22.50)

Brainwavz Delta

Th Brainwavz Delta headphones are one of the best options when it comes to sound quality. It’s funny, since looking at these (and perhaps considering the silly sound name) you wouldn’t expect to be blown away by the sound quality on offer, but that was certainly the case here. They are a lot better than some of the other options we looked at from big name companies at 3 times the price of these. So yes, I’d say that despite the options we placed ahead of this one on the list, the Brainwavz offer the best level of sound quality at an affordable price. – Buy from Amazon
