In-ear headphones are just as they sound – small earbuds designed to fit snugly inside the ear for portable, convenient listening. They’re easy to carry with you on the go, and while over-ear headphones are the better bet for getting the ultimate in audio fidelity, a good pair of earbuds can still provide absolutely stellar sound quality and isolation.

Depending on your budget, there are a number of features you can opt for. A pair of noise cancelling earbuds can be a tremendous asset in busy places like stations, cafes or offices, allowing you to switch off the noise of the world around you and focus on the sound. Or, if you’re going to be frequently taking calls, you may want to invest in earbuds with a microphone to ensure your voice is cleanly picked up.
