The In-Ear Headphone Face-Off @ S&V

After a few months of Zune’s premium in-ear phones, I am in the market for something a little better. I am not sure I am willing to spend $150-$200 on a pair but considering the amount of time I use them at work, it might be the way to go.

Check out S&V’s review of 6 in-ear phones in the $150-$200 range.


It is possible to have too many choices. And with most
high-end earphones, you do—plastic inserts of all shapes and sizes.
That’s why I was so happy to see that Future Sonics equips the Atrio
with compressible foam earpieces, as Etymotic does with the hf5. As
soon as I see these, I know they’re the earpieces I want. They keep the
earphones firmly in place, they’re comfortable, and they provide superb
isolation from outside sound
