Recommend Earbuds under 50?

ALRIGHT! So :3 I'm tired of buying Skull Candy for 10 dollars just for them to basically be useless after two months. My use case is literally every day at work of constant use as well as using it during cycling exercises. I need it to outlast proportionately with the skull candies so I need them to ATLEAST last 5 months ;w; 


My usual music, if it matters, goes anywhere from EDM to classical to just random pandora.. :v

Heck lots of options at $50 especially if you go to $100.


For $50:

If you can find SoundMAGIC E50s for that price that would be great. Furthermore, if you go to their own website. You could get refurbished ones for significantly less, I recently bought an E80C but the older models like E80 could hit about $50. These are linear IEMs.


If you like listening to vocal music especially male, jazz, or some oldies, then you might like some IEMs with a warm signature. These will generally give you longer listening sessions. I own a Beyerdynamic MMX 102. You cold get these for $50 now. Has good bass too.



You can bark like a dog, but that won't make you a dog.

You can act like someone you're not, but that won't change who you are.


Finished Crysis without a discrete GPU,15 FPS average, and a lot of heart


How I plan my builds -


For me I start with the "There's no way I'm not gonna spend $1,000 on a system."

Followed by the "Wow I need to buy the OS for a $100!?"

Then "Let's start with the 'best budget GPU' and 'best budget CPU' that actually fits what I think is my budget."

Realizing my budget is a lot less, I work my way to "I think these new games will run on a cheap ass CPU."

Then end with "The new parts launching next year is probably gonna be better and faster for the same price so I'll just buy next year."

I recommend the Marshall Mode for $40. 


They fit well, stay in your ear. The treble is smooth, vocals are forward and the bass is juicy.
