Addy needs a recommendation for wired, in-ear headphones with volume controls. Leo says that it all depends on the device he'll be plugging it into, and Addy will be using a Samsung Galaxy S 4 mini. Leo says he'll want a headphone with a three ring minijack. And even then, he doesn't know if the phone will understand the volume controls.
Here are some options Addy can consider:
- Bose in-ear monitors
These are over Addy's budget, though, at $120.
- Klipsch Image S4i
- Skull Candy
Skull Candy makes a variety of headphones within budget.
- Sennheiser CX 300 II Precision Enhanced Bass Earbuds
- Koss VC20 Volume Control
Addy can also check out Wirecutter article of the Best In-Ear headphones for under $40. Leo likes Etymotics earphones, but they are quite a bit more expensive than Addy's budget. They are very high fidelity, and isolate outside noise really well.
