Looking for new earbuds...

Hey guys, I will be glad for any recommendation you can give me.

For the last two years (!) I have been using JVC HAFX35S Soft Marshmallow earbuds and they were truly great, but local stores don't have them anymore.

I'm looking for something similar with perfect isolation, tight fit, strong bass and not stressed highs, at somewhere around 50 quid.

Cheers!

I use Shure SE215's that you can get for about 75 on Amazon, so if you can stretch to that, I'd highly recommend them.

Below 50 you might want to try Klipsch or Sennheiser

I recently went shopping for new earbuds. Id figure I would demo a few and decide what i like. Well i guess i never thought about it, but you cant demo earbuds. I can understand why, but how will you know what sounds best to your ear? I ended up buying SOL Republic Amps HD earbuds for 99usd Fantastic sound, great bass but not bass heavy. They also have iPhone controls with mic.

Thanks guys for all your recommendations!

The selection process was a tedious journey of ruthless elimination, but I finally decided to get Harman Kardon earbuds in the end.

Hopefully, I won't have to repeat this kind of decision making any time soon! Picking new earbuds is hard!

Cheers!
