JVC Flats ( Blue)
Though they look a little cheap, the JVC Flats are lightweight, comfortable on-ear headphones that sound surprisingly good for sub-$15 headphones.
Apple EarPods ( with Remote and Mic, White)
Apple's EarPods offer much-improved sound over the previous standard-issue earbuds, but they won't fit all ears equally well -- and that fit will determine whether you think they're great or just so-so.
Panasonic RP-HT21 ( Black)
As far as really inexpensive headphones go, you're not going to do too much better than the Panasonic RP-HT21s.
Panasonic ErgoFit RP-HJE120-A ( Blue)
For under $10, you'll be hard-pressed to find in-ear headphones that sound better and are more comfortable than the Panasonic ErgoFit RP-HJE120s.
MoGo Talk XD Bluetooth Headset ( and Protective Case for iPhone 4, Black)
The idea behind the MoGo Talk XD is clever, but we don't think the features fully justify its retail price.
Aerial7 Tank ( Hello Kitty)
The Aerial7 Tank Headphones will not satisfy audio purists or comfort hounds, but the young, DJ'ing target audience might be wooed by the durable and eye-catching design.
Altec Lansing MZX106W ( White/ Black)
The Altec Lansing MuzxDNA Mesh earphones represent an improvement over stock earbuds, but even given the ultralow price, the audio is unimpressive.
JVC HAF130V Gumy ( Grape Violet)
The JVC Gumy earphones are more stylish than stock earbuds and offer a slight improvement in audio quality--not bad for about 10 bucks.
IBLINK WLP3 ( White with Pink LED Lights)
The iBlink Earbuds may be gimmicky, but at least it's a fun gimmick that has a good chance of appealing to the younger set. Steer clear if you're picky about audio.
Candy Comfort ( York Peppermint Pattie)
The Candy Comfort Earphones are a fun replacement for stock earbuds that offer a reasonable upgrade in fit and comfort, but don't expect good sound quality.
