The Best Inexpensive Earphones for Running (and Talking)

I’m sure I’m not the first person who enjoys music to search of the best and least expensive earphones with which to run and use for talking with my iPhone. There are a lot of “sports earphones” out there, but they all sound like shit. I probably read reviews of at least a dozen inexpensive earphones on Amazon. and finally decided on a set of¬†Ultimate Ear 350vi’s. Terrible choice. The volume mysteriously adjusted when I ran with them and one of the earphones shorted out pretty quickly. Needless to say, I sent them back.

I’d been hesitant to try a pair of less expensive earphones, especially since I hadn’t heard of most of the brands. I dropped $27 hard-earned dollars on some¬†MEElectronics M6P-BK’s and absolutely love them. I’ve been running with them and use them as my daily work earphones for Skype calls. It was hardly a risky purchase and since I bought them on Amazon, I knew I could send them back if they had issues. So far, they have had none. They have memory wire so they tuck behind the ears and stay securely in my ears, even when I’m running, come with a great assortment of ear pieces and sound terrific, especially for the price. I would definitely recommend them.

As an aside, while I was doing some research, I also recently came upon an article about the Monoprice 8320 earphones, which cost, get this, $8(!!). Whoa is right. They don’t come with a microphone, but at $8, they might be worth a try as well. For now, I’m happy with my MEElectronics.
