In my day, I've tested out my fair share of earphones. Oddly enough, I'm not one of those people that can wear Apple's standard earphones — call it abnormally shaped ears, I don't know, I just can't wear em'. I definitely have a top three list of earphones that rock my world, but the problem is, they are waaay too expensive. And when I say overpriced, I mean you can't just run out and buy another pair if a) you lose 'em or b) they get trampled on at the gym (it happens).
I talked about Radius last year when they debuted their line of colorful ultra light aluminum earphones; well, this year they're back with a new line of ergonomic, oh so hip, and perfectly-fitting earphones called the Atomic Bass Earphones. Now a pair of these earphones are $50, and I know $50 isn't considered "cheap" but let me tell you, they offer the same sound quality as a $150 pair. If you want a cheap pair that offers zero bass, then pick up a $20 pair, but these ones output sound that is crystal clear and they have bass! Personally, I love me some bass with my tunes and these deliver just the right amount.
And did I mention they fit comfortably in your ear (they come with three different sizes of silicone ear pieces), are available in silver, black, and red and they include a high performance mic?! Yes, they are iPhone 3G friendly indeed.
