Not sure many people are still making those "button" type ones. But the ones in that picture are the Sennheiser MX475s that Rod mentioned.

For in-ears I always used to use Klipsch Image S4. When I first started buying them they were £80 and eventually went down to about £50. And then they stopped them. They were great for the money.

Then every review I read said the Sound Magic E10s were the quality of ear phones twice their price. I've had them for two pairs in a row and use the Comply Memory Foam ear tips with them which cancel out virtually all background noise. And for the piece they are fantastic. My latest pair are still going strong after three years heavy use. The longest I've ever had a pair.

For home I have Beyerdynamics T50s. Fantastic sound and comfortable. A bit ugly, but I don't care about that.

You still using the Sound Magic E10s, titch? After a pair of in-ear but for pretty cheap.
Just invested in a pair of the Sound Magic E10's today.  Gotta say, they sound magnificent and seem an absolute steal at £29.

Seriously blown away by the quality of these like, titch. I was also considering some Sennheiser CX 300 II's but not sure they'd have sounded this good. Just got new Angel Olsen on through them and it sounds absolutely fantastic.

Did you got the Angel Olsen from exy? Because to me it sounds a bit strange in some places and I'm not sure if it's like that or it's a bad rip...

I played it from Spotify and thought the same. I just thought it had been badly mixed.

I am. And unbelievably still the same pair. 5 years on. Been through three packs of memory foam (3 in a pack) in that time.

I have small ears so I've never been able to get the in-ear ones to fit correctly. Anyone else have that issue?

you can get wireless ones and what not. I also bought a usb soundcard for my pc which has made things sound bigger too. I put on THE GREAT BIG NO by Lemonheads yesterday and the bass line sounded so sexy, best thing that ever happened to me.

Think I'm gonna treat myself to a pair of those.  I was using a pair for a bit last summer and they sounded absolutely beautiful.

FFS, got outbid. Fucking hell.

Been looking at a pair of AKG K92 for use at home and in the office. Supposed to be a very good pair of cans at very good price. I'd only want them to use at home and in the office. The Soundmagic in-ears I've got are fine for travelling and commuting.

Honestly, these E10s are so good.  They have remarkable soundstage which I've always found severely lacking in other in-ears.  The sound is so detailed and crisp and the bass is not compromised in the slightest.  I've not even bothered with the memory foam tips yet 'cos one of the sets of tips that came with them work pretty well for me.

Looking at getting a set of the HP151's for use at home and a pair of the P22 BT's for use at work.

Managed to get hold of a pair of SoundMAGIC HP151s for £70 off eBay, an absolute steal considering everywhere else I've looked they're around the £120 mark.  Cannot wait to get them, I read very good things,

With audio gear is it a case of your setup will only be as good as the weakest link allows?

I really want a nice sound set up.

I mainly listen to tunes on my desktop, on spotify (working from home) and it's just an all in one PC with an integrated sound card. Would high end headphones be worth it? Or would I need to get some kind of external sound card? And are spotify streams themselves much cop? Don't fancy collecting SACDs.

Don't mind dropping a grand or so, but only if it's worth it :/

Any tips greatly appreciated :)
