    Budget?? Music taste??

    Different people have different preference, so my mileage may differ from yours. Best is to audition them. You can try Jaben at Adelphi. If not go to these forums for more advise: Headphonehaven or SgHeadphones.

    earbuds are earphones. And so are IEMs. Nevertheless, it doesn't matter if it sounds like one to u or not.

    I think budget is very important here..

    If you're looking for <$100, I don't think most of the earphones which +evenstar suggested fits under that category.

    I bought myself the Shure E4g at the recent IT Show at Suntec for $399 and they are sssswwweeeettt.... Sure, I spent quite abit of moo-lahs on it but I think it is well worth the investment.

    I noticed that afbug is using Shure E500PTH. That is also one hellava pair of earphones, which my brother has. I tried it several times and the sound quality never fails to amaze me. BUT it was way beyond my budget.

    Hey, earbud earphones referring to those canal ones? Anyway...Like what they say, the budget is important. You can choose those elementary ones for $40+ to those $500+
    Anyway...One good recommendation is Creative Zen Aurvana. It's quite good and the price is mid-ranged. FYI,it's $169...Dunno about now!

    E4 is good eh? But $399 is a little too much. I think u can get it for less at Stereo Elect at Causeway pt. It sells for US$180 online excluding shipping. Vpost shipping is about SGD$20. US land should be free at that price.

    Yeah E500 is great but the PTH is useless. In fact, mine is still new in the box, never use before.

    Westone UM1 is a very good buy. Got mine at slightly over a hundred, for the built quality, seal (even its not the original foam tips) and sound (I can hear a wall of difference between this and other earphones).

    Of cos, I'm not one of those who buy and buy earphones, so I reckon this would last me a couple of years before it croaks on me and I have to spend to get another new one so getting something slightly over a hundred, last me longer than the average lifespan of earphones is pretty worth it to me.

    So far the funniest comment I'd heard abt my earphones is, "Is that a earphone???" Happened to me day before at Taka Kino when I was making my purchase and unplugging myself frm my music.

    Really? I actually like the concept of the PTH. It beats removing the ear-phones and putting them back on when you're just making small conversation e.g. making payment at counter etc.

    I'm thinking whether I can hijack my bro's PTH to use on my E4g. He doesn't use it too.

    my friends use Ultimate Ears Super Fi 5 PRO. I don't know how good this is compared to others, but he likes it!

    I have both a Shure E4 and Ultimate Ears Superfi 5 Pro and I would swear by the Ultimate Ears anytime. A lot depends on the type of music you listen to. If you like those Hip Hop heavy bass music then the Superfi 5 Pro is not the type for you.
    I listen to a lot of Instrumental Rock/Metal/Jazz/Blues. Anything guitar and sometimes vocal.. I'm into it. Hope that helps

    i use audiotechnica ath-ck5 bought for $20 in Japan. not sure how much is it here. recently bought the panasonic RP-HJE50 for $39 at funan centre. to my ears, the ath-ck5 sounds better.

    Sony sucks with poor durability. I am owning a pair of sony mdr-ex71 but the plastic joint is cracked with exposed wire. Slightly lack of bass for my liking. Thanks for the entire range of recommendations but i am looking for a pair that cost around 150 SGD.

    lol ur bro is probably just like me, find it a little hassle. Yeah u should hijack his PTH but with E4's 1.5m cable, u need to manage it. E4g doesn't have the modular cable system like the E500.

    When making small conversation e.g. making payment at counter, I'll pretend that I'm deaf and dumb!
