Looking for in-ear headphones under $45?
 
Hello. I am new to this forum, so please be as helpful as possible. Thanks!

Recently, I have been listening to music a TON lately, and I decided it was time to purchase another set of in-ear headphones. I listen to music on a Sandisk Clip+ (8GB, White) and am looking to pay a couple bucks for one.

Budget: Free-$45
Location: USA (via Amazon)
Category: Earbuds, Earhooks (Anything without the two giant bulbs around the ear)
Primary Use: Listening to music quite often, taking it on the go (to restaurants, on long trips, etc.) Need a pair that delivers nice audio but doesn't break
Preferable SQ or Sound signature: Just need something that delivers nice music that sounds good
Media: I just need earphones that can listen to music
Source: Sandisk Sansa Clip+
Additional Info: I hope this thing can last 3-5 years without me having to replace it

I don't really need anything fancy; in general, I just need something that delivers nice sounding music, instead of just the average Apple earbuds sound.

Thanks!

Personally, I'd look at the Klipsch Image S4 / S4i phones--via Amazon in open box or like new form, going right now for as low as around $42 shipped. A super deal at that price.

Everything breaks, how long it lasts depends on how good you take care of it.

Preferable SQ = things like you enjoy bass best, midrange, forward (treble) sounding IEMs, etc. etc. … So you might want to describe what sounds you enjoy most.

Media = the tunes or video that you use to listen to. For example I like Reggae best or I prefer Soca, etc. etc. …

The more detail you provide, the better recommendations that members can make. You can always edit your first post ...
