Updated with a review for the RHA MA-350s.

Can a mod please include them in the title (if they fit!)

The RHA MA-350 cost you 29 Quid($45.40)! I don't see how that fits in with the other earphones mentioned that were around $15. Today there are so many decent IEMs $15-$25. I like the Panasonic RP-HJE450 for its fit and bass slam, but also like the Panasonic RP-HJE355 which has more detail but less bass impact. The Meelectronics CW31 is quite decent. The JVC HAFX101 is nice when I want more bass. The HAFX101 is now only $14 on Amazon.

I don't think benesotor ever specified everything reviewed would fall within an absolute price range. I got the impression he was just being kind enough to share his experiences with the various earphones he's used. And to that end, I say the more the merrier.

Also, while I'm definitely a fan of bang-for-the-buck earphones, none of the bargain-basement sets I've heard have mirrored the euphoria that my Monster Turbine Pro Coppers consistently induce...and I'm sure you'd have an embolism over their price tag.

I have had expensive headphones years ago. One was highly rated and normally sold for around $500. It was good, but not that much better than the best $100 headphones I had. Certainly not 5x as good. Perhaps 20% or so better. Is 20% better worth 5x the price? I don't think so. Since 2000, I have not bought any headphones over $100 each. In the 90s I did it a few times.

I usually try to compare headphones and earphones that are similar in price so the comparison is fair. I compare them based on real selling prices and not list price.

See my IEMs under $25 thread for my opinion on 6 IEMs I have. I am having fun with these cheap IEMs. I might start buying some that are a bit more expensive(perhaps up to $40 or so), if I feel they are really worth it. I am amazed though at how pleasing some of those under $25 IEMs are. We have come a long way from when the original Sennheiser CX300 was around $80 or so.
