Nuforce makes a variety of audio products, including a few different earphones that offer very good sound at affordable prices.
The company says the NE-770X, which comes in three different colors, features wide-range, non-metallic drivers that have been configured to produce a "natural, supremely musical sonic signature without sacrificing dynamic punch, soundstage dimension, holographic imaging, or wide-band frequency response."
That's the stuff you can't see, the stuff on the inside. The outside -- the shell, so to speak -- is what you'll react to first, and it may not be good. Here's why: the earphones' housing is made out of polycarbonate plastic, which makes them very lightweight (Nuforce describes the material as acoustically inert), but it also makes them look a little cheap.
Compare this with something like the $79.99
The earphones come with the usual three sizes of silicon eartips (small, medium, and large) as well as an inexpensive soft cloth pouch, which I appreciated. I also like how the right bud has a little red ring around the cord for quick reference, since it's very hard to distinguish the "L" and "R" markings.
