Good IEMs under $40?
 
I am looking to buy a decent pair of IEMs, but unfortunately I am on a tight budget. :( What do some of you recommend? I was also looking at the Sony MDR-EX210B, does anybody know how these sound?

I live in the US by the way, mainly looking for good sound quality to use with my Cowon J3.

I think these are very good , a little more than your budget but well worth it

Cnet just did a round-up of under-$50 phones, including some IEMs. You might find the article helpful.

Sennheiser CX300? Careful though, plenty of fakes floating around.

These really caught my eye, thanks. :) Do you know how they stack up against the SoundMAGIC e10s?

I find all sources, including forums, inherently biased, to a degree, as we all are . . . . ;) But they all can be used for information. In point of fact, I don't find Cnet any moreso than anyone else, and a good place for a fair amount of information and roundups.

Iím surprised you bothered to answer, I was being rhetorical. That said, I just find them too bias and more so when they get paid off via advertising revenue ;) Although I guess they're not bad for some general information ...

If you want to go cheap as possible, get the Monoprice MEP-933 also known as 8320. You can get it for about $7 plus shipping at Monoprice. It has been getting rave reviews. According to a review, it is better than the Soundmagic E10 in terms of SQ.

Thanks for all the suggestions, they were really helpful. I think I'm going to go with the MEElectronics M6 with Klipsch S4. Found the S4s for a little over 25 on amazon refurbished. :cool:


PS: Haven't ordered the M6 yet, just the S4s. Any more choices for IEMs for close to/under $20? I might use it to work out more, don't want anything to happen to the Klipsch.
