The Monoprice 1083230 Earphone is shocking; at $12, they deliver solid noise canceling and above average sound quality. The bass response is quite good, and fans of Monoprice know they offer dependable products with a great zero-hassle return policy.


There are drawbacks, of course, in this price range. The bud tips are plastic, which may irritate some. Consider replacing the tips (easy to do DIY) with steel. The upshot? For $12 you get all the sound quality and noise cancelation of earphones cost as much as 10x more. What are you waiting for?
