The Klipsch Custom 1s are unusual in terms of fit, but worth the money if you're a fan of vocally-driven and unplugged music, such as jazz, country and folk.

Typical price: £60.00
Clearly great sub-£100 earphones for jazz, soul and vocal genre lovers. If it's music that can be performed live without any amplification, electronics or mixing desks, it's probably suitable for the Custom-2s
Typical price: £100.00

Typical price: £150.00
