    Hey all, I'm looking for some in ear headphones since my current one has stopped working in the left side.

    My current one is the WH-920 from Nokia/Monster.

    I'd like something that provides a similar sound (not bass heavy and more clear) but last a long time since the WH-920 always seem to stop working in the left side (based in other reviews as well)

    The ones I've found so far are
    http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B...O&linkCode=as2

    http://www.amazon.co.uk/AKG-376-Head...rds=akg+in+ear

    I don't mind paying up to £80 but under £50 would be ideal.

    Cheers!

    For £80, get the Hifiman RE-400, for closer to £50 get the Philips Fidelio S1 or VSonic GR06. All three are superb, relatively well balanced headphones with exceptional clarity at their respective price points :yep: Can't find any first hand impressions of the EB-33s on any audiophile sites so can't comment on them, and while AKG's stuff is always good quality their in-ear options are never really noteworthy. I'd much rather take the well acclaimed Hifimans at that end of the price range.

    Cheers, decided to go with the Philips.
