What type of ear buds (in-ear headphones) are you looking for?

When people shop for in-ear headphones, what is it that makes them decide which ones to purchase?  There are so many different styles to choose from that the average Joe has a tough decision to make.

but are they really worth 100 bucks?  Maybe they are, but for myself, I’m looking for function and durability not looks.  Will I notice the sound difference when I’m running at 6mph on the tread mill, or doing a vigorous High intensity spin class?  OK, you got me…I am not going to do any vigorous high intensity spin classes in the near future but I do like to get on the treadmill once in a while for a nice jog.  I may be biased when I say that I use a low cost, high quality in-earbud from our own 4XEM.  They are keeping it real with low cost packaging and passing the savings on to the customer.  The quality is everything I need and the sound is great with tons of bass.  They are very soft, comfortable and deliver great sound and have a single button remote/microphone that is compatible with Apple®, BlackBerry®, Android™ and most media devices with a 3.5 mm jack.  The best part is, if I happen to damage them because I fell asleep while binging on the latest Netflix series on my Ipad, I will not have to re-mortgage the house to get a replacement pair.

The 4XIBUDWH and the 4XIBUDBK are available from many of your favorite etailers and if you stay tuned…I hear that 4XEM may be giving several promotional sets away.  Follow my blog to stay in the loop.  The free earbuds are coming soon!
