There is a cult following behind the MonoPrice 8320 earbuds

Read about them:

I bought a pair a while back and can vouch for them. Insane, and only about $9 delivered.

I always recommend the JVC Xtreme Xplosives for amazing sounding, inexpensive, earbuds. You can wear these things for hours and hours without ever even the slightest bit of pain. Only buds I've owned out of many that felt so natural in your ears that you can forget you're wearing them.

Then you get to the sound.. Bass is deep and clear, mids are great, and highs are surprisingly good. So far, none of my friends or family that I've bought them for or recommended them to have given them anything but high praise.

They can be found on Amazon for about $18 for the older version and $25 for the newer with aluminum casing and carbon diaphragm.

For doing yardwork ill or when I need to still hear my surroundings ill use some Vmoda in ears. But when I want to imerse myself in my music, ill use my Westone ES5s. I've tried many many in ears, and these are the 2 I've settled on. If I could give one piece of advice, get phones with removable cords. Those were always the first thing to break.

i have them, while they are great sounding and i'm loving the case (and name), i cant say that they are painless, i've tried both the small and medium size rubbers and they both result in mild discomfort after a certain amount of time. I can live with that because they were cheap and great sounding for price range, plus it's near impossible to find ear buds that don't start hurting after a while. I recommend speakers for a pain free experience

Because our phone upgrade wouldn't have cost 200 dollars (or 800? if you bought it outright) if they did. Not to mention Beats earbuds are overpriced, that price tag doesn't reflect their quality.
