Can somebody recommend some decent budget (~£20-£30) in-earphones?
I have gone through about 6 sets since April.

Are the KZ brand mentioned good?

Not in ear but bought a pair of these as my Sennheiser HD25s are a but bulky for day to day usage. Sound is incredible for the price.

11 hr battery life. Only downside is there's no option to use a wire.

? You must be spastards. The Sony's come with a folding tree case I religiously wrap em on when finished using. Have used em on commutes thousands of times. Sound better than ever, fully and truly "broken in"

The actual bodies have had some cosmetic wear so I carefully masked and resprayed last year. Only maint I've done on em

Same as previous pair posted just cheaper.

Decent beaters

Just got these, decent for the money, agreed, thanks for the tip Razor, ran with them over the weekend.

Anyone use Bluetooth buds for the gym/running that ain't beaters? Looking to replace some wired Senn's that have lasted the gym and runs for years and am prepared to pay up if the kit is the real deal.

Really? Thought Dre's were generally ridiculed by audiophiles. Shows what I know!

Thanks for the suggestion, andrew, I'm android anyway.

I use AirPods.

I train in them for a couple of hours every day and have never fallen out. Battery life is really good, too.

Yes. A common hack is to put foam tips over them to improve the fit (and bass)

Jeg, I had the RHA T20 nice sound for the price. Solid build but I found them A bit t heavy for in ears. I have had loads and the best for clarity were the Senn ie800 but they are very expensive but not a great fit.
