Spend $10 more for the MEEAudio M6 Pro earbuds. They might be some of the best sounding earbuds under $100, let alone $50, and come with a ton of great freebies;

  • Detachable earbuds.
  • Two cables (one high-fidelity listening cable, one with a mic)
  • A ton of silicon ear tips (in different shapes and sizes.
  • A pair of Comply Foam eartips (normally valued at $15)
  • A 1/8" to 1/4" gold-plated adapter.
  • A carrying case.

I think putting an extra $10 towards these would give you much better value than stuff like the Xiaomi Piston 3 or the regular M6 (non-pro edition).


However, if you want an excellent value option that sounds better than everything I mentioned besides the M6 Pros, pick up a pair of Panasonic RP-HJE 120s, which cost just $7. I used these for a lot of my audio production work back when I didn't have any money, and they produced some astounding results. I can PM you some of the recordings I worked on using the RP-HJE120s as reference earphones if you like.
