The Best In Ear Headphones Under 100 Dollars

Updated on May 7, 2014

Rated & Reviewed The Best In Ear Headphones Under 100 Dollars

When you want the best sound out of your smartphone or digital music player, you have many more choices than just what came "in the box." In ear or earbud headphones have an enduring popularity among many users because they are the most portable and allow themselves to be easily hid for subtle listening. Increasingly, however, sound quality for earbuds has also improved to where there is less or no compromise compared to over-the-ear style headphones. Many current in ear models include a variety of features and designs to increase convenience and enhance functionality. These features will often include in-line microphones for voice calls, ergonomic bud shaping to "seal" the ear to outside noise, and advanced driver technology for range and fidelity. The following four models have been selected both for the flexibility of their design and the strength of their performance.

JLab Diego In-Ear Earbud

The JLab Diegos offer a range of color options ranging from monochrome to a shocking teal-and-purple, with a color-matched dual color, tangle-free flat cable. This pair is definitely an individualist's choice, at a price point that allows you to purchase multiple sets to stash in a bag or a coat, so you're never without headphones.With a 10mm neodymium driver, these earbuds have a sonic range wide enough for most popular music or .mp3 quality recordings. The cushion tips come in a variety of sizes that should fit snugly to your ear canal.

Bose IE2 Audio Headphones

The biggest obvious difference between the Bose IE2 lie with their proprietary StayHear tips, which purport to offer the greater stability of ear hooks without a full-hook design. Some users consider a hook essential to holding the earbud in place during exercise and other activities. StayHear tips come in three sizes to accommodate ear size and canal variation.The IE2's also come with a protective carrying case large enough to carry themselves and a small music player like the iPod Nano. Performance is on par with their typically premium price point, thanks to the TriPort internal acoustic structure, another proprietary feature. Bose also includes a 1 year limited warranty for parts and labor.
