    Hi

    I'm looking for a good pair of In Ear Headphones for under £20 and I was wondering you guys' opinions.

    I've had Xtreme Xplosives before (twice) but I'm giving up on them because they keep breaking every two seconds!

    Thanks

    Vsonic VC02 if you can find them, there's usually an eBay seller floating around stocking them for around the £20 mark. Otherwise I would go for the Monoprice 8320 and a set of Comply T400 tips.

    I had the Monoprice ones but they broke after less than two months and the sound isolation was god awful!

    I was looking at these which seem to have good reviews Creative EP-630 and these Sony MDREX210

    The only I'm worried about though is if I buy on Amazon will they be covered by any sort of warranty?

    Agreed, until I put the right size tips in them.

    What mikey said, once you get a good set of tips they outclass everything else for under £40 as an overall package. That's why I recommended buying them alongside Comply tips. Foam tips expand in the ear to create a complete seal, offering maximum isolation and in turn improving bass response. Otherwise my suggestion would be another VSonic pair, the GR99, which can currently be nabbed on eBay for about £18.

    I guess so however the thing is they failed on me in two months (hence I'm hesitant about getting them again) and the thing with the tips is I have a tendency to lose them and I don't really want to be shelling out £15 each time that happens.

    Koss pathfinder. Good noizeisolation (like earplugs). OR Sennheiser CX300.

    (if you frequently wrip headphones maybe you should consider something more durable cans? Senheiser hd280pro is not that pricy)
