The list author says: "I love music and I have been on a quest to find the perfect earphone set. I have quite a collection from different manufacturers and thought I would create a list to help others with to find the perfect set without having to accumulate as large of a collection as I regret to say I have purchased."

"The best that I have come across. The sound is incredible and even out performs many of my top-of-the-line circum-aural headphones. The bass is deep and rich. Vocals are crisp. I love the sound. If you have $500 to spend on a great pair of earphones, you won't go wrong with the Shure SE535's."

"These earphones won't disappoint the sound quality is excellent. However, I must admit that I have difficulty saying that the sound quality is far superior to the Westone UM3. Still the quality is superb!"

"Truly beautiful, crisp and clear sound. I love this set and it was difficult to decide which set to rank as number one between these and the Shure SE535. If price is an issue don't hesitate to buy these as the sound is very comparable to the more expensive Shure."

"For the price this set quite surprised me and I still use this set regularly as I am less worried about losing them than my higher end earphones. The performance of the Image S4 is superb. The sound quality is realistic and powerful. If you want a quality set for under $100 look no further."

"If you want a rich sound for about $ 10 this is the way to go. These buds are equal in sound quality to many higher-end earphones. I can't get over the sound quality for the price, WOW! These are a must have for the budget-conscious. One drawback is they tend to uncomfortable during extended use."
Monster Beats Tour High Resolution Headphones

"Sound quality is disappointing! They appear to be solidly built and are visually stunning. However, I want acoustic not visual beauty out of my earphones and on this level they leave much to be desired (even the $10 Sony's sound richer). I was astonished with the lack of bass! Monster seems to have put more money into advertising rather than product development with these!"

"Likewise, Skullcandy has beautiful, color-coordinated, fashionable earbuds that make for stylish accessories.   I just wish they would sound as nice as they look! Don't get me wrong, I think they are adequate for the price but compared to the sound quality of any of the other phones I have listed they just sound dull."
