    Can anyone recommend me really good in-ear earphones?

    Looking for something thats good in quality, sound, durable and of a reasonable price.

    I bought a standard set from HMV quite some time ago (£10 ones) which lasted me over a year.... but one of the ear buds ended up loosing (somehow =s) and now that ear piece doesn't work anymore =(...

    Looking to spend no more than £20 for my next pair. >_<

    Please, I am STRICTLY looking for in-ear ones only....
    Thanks in advance!

    Thanks for the reply.

    Does seem promising in its quality and durability from the 490 odd 5 Star reviews it recieved.

    Would like to know IF there's anything better?

    hmm sounds like you bought the JVC ones that come in bright colours .. well I have a pair of those, they give great sound quality and have lasted me for a long time. quite a bargain really.

    but if not them, then seinnheiser ones supposedly very good quality.

    No, it wasn't the bright colour JVC ones....
    They were black...

    It was these http://hmv.com/hmvweb/displayProduct...;-1&sku=764564
    ^ They were quite good. =)

    Well, this thread is over now. ^_^

    I think you should get the skull candy ones from HMV, they're only about £9, in-ear, epic quality, come with 3 different sized ear buds and last for ages

    I bought the Creative EP-630 earphones because my bro just got them as well.I tried them out and well, they're great.another pair... I might consider getting one of the others.

    Thank you for your replies, they're still useful for future references =)
    If, by possibility... something happens to them that I need to buy

    Thanks for the opinion man.
    There's just something about Skull Candy that makes me not want to buy it anyways lool =P .... and what you said is probably why... they don't look durable to me.

    As others have recommended, the Sennheisers are very good. You can pick up a pair of csx500 for £13 delivered:

    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Sennheiser-CX5...ht_4228wt_1139

    Another thing to look out for is the cable length if you are tall; short cables really annoy me.

    Possibly the biggest bargain ive ever brought, these are fantastic at noise cancelling, its a marshmellow foam type, so it moulds into your ear. Comparing them to my 40 pound AKG headphones, id say these were better quality, lasted me 3 years now.

    Id be careful with ebay, i brought a pair of CX400 for £15 and they turned out to be fake. The packaging was a badly printed copy of the real thing and the earphones were cheap and nasty :/

    That's unlucky, though you could probably claim that back if you paid with Paypal. The pair that I bought off E-bay was genuine at least.

    You need to spend the extra £2 on a supplier with a high rating which laso looks professional. Persoanlly I feel Sennheiser CX 400 is the best value for money in this region, I've been using my set for a year now and I still can't find a fault.

    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.d...ht_2243wt_1139
