    Does anyone have a good recommendation for ribbon earphones that sound good and aren't ridiculously priced?

    I just read a review for some new earphones that sound awesome, but I don't want them bad enough to spend $250-

    Try the Swedish brand - Jays - good quality & reviews. I just picked up a set
    of the Jays 4 model for under £20 ($30). Ribbon cable & full iPhone mic etc..

    The Jay 4's look cool, but I read quite a few poor reviews for them on Amazon. The biggest complaints are the bass is lacking and they aren't comfortable to wear.

    Any other suggestions on ribbon earphones? Thanks!!

    I love mine. I listen too heavy metal and Alternative, Avenged Sevenfold and Disturbed among others. I find the Bass Balanced rather then Fake but plenty of base for me.

    They do look nice, but the Amazon reviews aren't good. With any product review there's always someone that's not happy, but with this product many consumers are dissatisfied with the quality and comfort.
