Updated on November 17, 2015

In best in-ear headphones 2016 we are going to look at the benefits of using premium in-ear headphones and then we are going to review some of the best selling new headphones of 2016.

Benefits of in-ear headphones:
Why do so many people prefer the in-ear headphones over the traditional over-ear variety?

  • More compact: Smaller headphones are easier to travel with and easier to use on the road.
  • More stylish: Traditional earphones tend to limit what you can do fashion-wise, around your head. In-ear earphones are so compact that they allow you to wear what you like.

Shure SE535 Sound Isolating Earphones

The Shure SE535 is a remarkable piece of audio equipment and our pick as best earphones of 2016. Having said that it's very pricey and if the device you connect it to isn't top of the line you won't be able to tell the difference between it and some of the other earphones here.

The Shure systems come with sound isolating technology. This counteracts the background noise entering your ear canal and ensures that you get superior quality audio. You can enjoy high quality audio without distortion and without having to listen at high volume. The ground breaking tweeter puts out great quality sound and the bass from this set is exceptional.

Despite the high price tag, user feedback supports the company's claims that the SE535 is worth it.

The Shure range delivers high quality audio with its ergonomic designs. It also provides flexible fits for a more comfortable experience.
