Headphones recommendations - for someone with tiny ear canal
Posted 15 September 2009 - 08:23 PM
I am assuming that earbuds are not supposed to cause discomfort. I was thinking of going with the "marshmallow" style earphones. I am not an audiophile so I just want something that will work and something that is cheap, the cheaper the better. Under $10 would be good.
I was thinking of getting these from Dealextreme and they are only $3 so it wouldn't be a lot of wasted money if I don't like them. But maybe someone here has a better recommendation?

For a little more cash, you could go with the Sennheiser CX300. The black ones are under $20 on Amazon. They have different-sized tips and the Sennheiser brand is highly regarded.
I wouldn't get those earphones that you linked. They're knocking off the Sony N.U.D.E. EX line of higher-end earphones. Cheap price, but who knows how long they would last. I would put my money towards something better and more reliable.

I have friends with thousands invested in there headphones so don't think 100$ is a lot cause it isn't. Normally I wouldn't recomend bose for anyone but i know they work for small ears.

I've never even tried a pair of noise cancelling in-ear headphones before so I will probably order the $3 ones and see if I like it then order something better in the $20 range if that is the case. I just switched from the normal overhead style headphones recently, lol.

Hope the DE earphones work out for you! If not, there's a lot more sub-$20 earphones to try.

I've been trying to decide between the Seinhansser and JVC buds on Amazon for a while (I don't really know much about them, but I liked both sets of reviews), but I'm working on negative money right now, so $3 buds are a lot better for me than $15 ones.

Walmart is a bit expensive on everything in electronics so I could probably do better online if I scoured a bit and maybe waited for black friday/holiday season. I can do with what I have until then.
