2. Zero Audio Carbo Tenore - Best Cheap Bass Earphone

ZERO AUDIO have a range of seriously good earphones at seriously good prices but my pick of the bunch has to be the Carbo Tenore. The Tenore is very well balanced, light and also comfortable and come in at $30 to $40 and can easily be put up against many in ear headphones under $100.  An amazing sounding in ear monitor for those on a budget its one of the great cheap earphones around today.








3. SoundMagic E10 - Best Cheap Fashion Earphone

The Soundmagic E10 earphones have been around for a few years now and for good reason.  Soundmagic are not just a company set up to sell of cheap earphones they bring some outstanding stuff in at a far lower price than you would expect.  Solid mids and good bass response combined with a great build and styling are the reason that the E10 have been extremely popular in the budget audiophile community and are well deserving place on this list again in 2015.







4. Brainwavz Delta - Best Balanced Cheap Earphone 

Im going to include the BRAINWAVZ Delta on this list because it was an earphone that I had the chance to try at the end of last year.  It left me extremely impressed with its ability to handle highs and was overall very reminiscent of the outstanding Hifiman RE0 earphones from a few years ago.  It comes across with an extremely balanced presentation which is something you don't usually find at this price point.  Certainly my recommendation for those looking for great detail and balanced sound for their budget earphones.  Oh.... one more thing... they are just $20 right now.








5.  RHA MA 350 - Best Designed Cheap Earphone

I had a hard time choosing the 5th and final earphone for the best earphones under 50 2015 list but in the end it came down to value and durability. With any RHA earphone you are getting tremendous bang for buck at their respective price points and in this case the MA350 fits the bill nicely.  Coming in with a rock solid aluminium body, rather cool styling, strong punchy sound and an outstanding 3 year warranty they are just packed with features for the price.  Read our full RHA MA 350 review here.
