No need to hurt your ears with those plastic In-Ear headphones you got for free with your Smartphone when you can enjoy Music with Finely designed and crafted best Earbuds for the money. Most people I am friends with LOVE over ear headphones but those have their draw-backs. For starters, they tend to be quite bulky and not much portable if we compare them with In-Ears.
You can carry In-Ear Headphones easily in your pocket wherever you want to go. Anyways, like previous year I thought to Share a list of Best In-Ear Headphones you can buy without thinking in 2018. I’ve included Best Earbuds of all kinds, including earbuds you can take to Gym for Workout, Running or carry around while travelling, So here we go:
Best In-Ear Headphones of 2018:
10. Bose Freestyle Earbuds:
Our Review: One of the best earbuds for gym Workout. I have used many Bose earphones and few of them felt like their cords should be more in length, I was only able to use them with my iPod so that I can clip it higher on my shirt and not in my pocket. However the case is much different with these headphones, the length of cord is just perfect so ٰ could rest my phone in pocket while workout or while travelling. like many others it comes with 3 versions:
- Without inline Remote (for MP3s and iPods or just for listening to music)
- With inline Remote and Mic – Samsung Version (Compatible with almost every other Android brand out there like HTC, Sony, LG, etc)
- With inline remote and mic for iPhone ( For all Apple compatible devices like iPod, iPad, iPhone, etc)
Bottom line: If you are choosing in-ear headphones for your workout sessions or wet weather like rain and you want moisture resistant and sturdy Headphones, I’ll recommend Bose freestyle earbuds.
9. Bose SoundTrue In-Ear Headphones:
Our Review: Bose Soundtrue in-Ear Headphones are far one of the best Earbuds I have ever experienced because it includes Inline remote so you can take calls or listen to music, etc. It got another feature, you got options, Whether you can buy an Samsung galaxy model of Headphones which is compatible with other android phones or Apple Version which, of course, is fully compatible with Latest iPhone models.
Bottom line: The way they the noise cancellation works in these is that it cuts you off from outer world, way too much. Well most of time you are listening to music and someone talks to you are you yell at them back, which is Rude. Obviously these Earbuds are for people who like More noise isolation while listening to music.
8. Sony MDR-EX650 In-Ear Headphones:
Our Review: Sony is known for its great music equipment like the iconic Walkman series. I’ve included Sony’s XBA-4 in our previous list. Anyways as I said before Sony is known for its music equipment and this In-ear headphone also got the same thing in heritage from Sony. As these are one of the most balanced sounding earbuds I have ever listened to.
The bass is strong but not overpowering, mid-range is smooth, treble is clear and smooth. Overall the bass is the most impressive feature in these headphones as it full and rich but it never gets too much harsh or flabby.
Bottom line: Sturdy design, a Solid build quality of headphones and cord makes it perfect for any person who loves to hear music while traveling or resting. if you were going to buy a $50-$60 earbuds, I’ll suggest you to skip them and spend a bit more money on these as you’ll never regret it.
7. A-jays Five Earbuds:
Our Review: Previously I included A-jays Four in my earlier review and now I am including these because of the build quality they offer. When you touch silicon tips and the cable itself, it feels like touching smooth and soft leather but with the durability of silicon. They actually come in 3 different versions with inline mic and remote, the Apple version, the Android version and the Windows version.
Bottom line: I love its tangle-free flat cable, the only downside of these earbuds is that they are attention grabbing and draw a lot of attention, if you don’t worry about that, Go Buy them now.
6. Monster iSport Victory:
Our Review: Well, well, well, these are the best in-ear headphones for Workout in out list with patented SportClip which holds the headphones in your ear. Wanna buy a decent pair of earbuds for your Gym workout sessions, these headphone are way to go. These headphones offer you total noise isolation and are easy and comfortable to wear. You get real dirty or sweaty while workout? No problem, wash them with water they are washable.
Bottom line: the Only downside of this headphone is that its Inline remote would only work with Apple devices such as iPhone and not with other devices like Windows phones or Android phones. Otherwise, these headphones offer Rich bass and highs and clear trebles.
5. Bowers & Wilkins C5:
Our Review: I was thinking to make an addition from Bowers and Wilkins to this list of Best Earbuds of 2018 as I added in earlier list of 2016. But the newer version of these headphones (Bowers & Wilkins C5 S2) was not worth mentioning so I am Writing a review about these, again.
I actually bought them to try them and compare with Shure SE425 and I am happy to say I am not disappointed at all. I got experienced with them when I was heading back from a meeting to home and I tried them. I wasn’t able to get tight fit with default tips and I changed them as soon as I got home with smaller ones and I enjoy music with these when I am travelling.
Bottom line: I am happy to say that they provided the quality I was getting from Shure SE425 headphones which costed me almost double. I’ll say, just cut the crap and buy them if you just wanna enjoy the music, that’s it.
4. Bose QuietComfort 20i:
Our Review: Having the knowledge I have about noise-cancellation, I’ll probably say what Bose has accomplished wasn’t even possible. These earbuds are Best All-Rounders for everyday use, I am not saying they are the best in each group. If you are an audiophile, maybe better vocals is your priority but these headphones are best for daily use with your Phone or portable music device.
Bottom line: If you ask me, these in-ear headphones are costly, sincerely speaking I would expect them to be perfect and believe me they are. I would buy them Only if I am a fan of next-level noise cancellation which it features. like any other costly earbuds they come with two version too, Apple version and standard version.
3. RHA T10i:
Our Review: SOLID, Solid build quality, Practical, precise in-ear headphones. These headphones are Metal moulded, stainless steel construction. Come with interchangeable tuning filters with holder, so you could choose which one is best for you. I have never seen that level of customization in any earbuds, it takes a while to get them adjusted till they hit their sweet spot and I think that is what in-ear headphones are all about.
Bottom line: They are not for you if you want to make phone calls using any Android phone, as its inline remote and mic is not compatible with non-Apple devices. Otherwise, there are 2 versions available for these headphones, Headphones only (for universal devices) and with mic and remote (for Apple device).
2. Sennheiser Momentum In-Ear:
Our Review: I am fairly Impressed with the Quality and Bold design Sennheiser delivered for under $100 price point (Actual Price is $99). Sennheiser is known for its amazing un-boxing experience and great sound quality. These In-ear headphones are Well designed, basically, I used them for 3-4 weeks for Phone Calls and the Clarity and noise isolation was amazing.
For listening music I want to mention few things here, if you are an audiophile or not, you are going to get blown away with the excellence of music playback from your phone (or an MP3 player). Bass is rich without being overpowering, mids are full and high-end is Clear. Comes with different sized earbuds so you can easily pick best for your size.
Bottom line: We Recommend these Earbuds because so far we found No downside. This specific model comes in two versions, iPhone and Samsung galaxy version (which will work with most of the Android brands like Sony, HTC, Motorola etc.
1. Shure SE425:
Our Review: If you are an Audiophile and looking for one of the Best In Ear headphones for 2018, Shure SE425 are The Best for you. Well, Why am I recommending them? because I did fair share of research before buying them too, turns out they are Best Earbuds I have ever got in earlier 3-4 years in terms of Audio quality, they are Just as every normal person would want. The mids, lows and the highs are just perfect, as any audiophile would love to listen to, that is why they got 1st place in this List.
Bottom line: One of the best I ever owned, you hear what comes in the music, no exaggerated bass and treble to hurt your ears, Our recommendation, Buy them without giving it a second thought.
