If you want an affordable pair of amazing in-ear headphones, you can't really look past Sennheiser's Momentum in-ears.
Choose from either the M2 IEi for Apple devices and the IEG, which carries the relevant control/mic combo for Android phones.
The Y50s also have a bold, modern look that might be a little out of character for the company, but it’s a smart, sensible step that appeals to a younger market. Sound quality is superb for the money, so it's definitely not a case of style over substance.
The K550s have been a firm office favourite for a number of years and they're still going strong. The large earpieces, broad headband, and long, chunky cable make them more suited to home listening, but despite looking like a pair of ear-defenders, they're light, comfortable and sound fantastic too.
To make the most of the iPhone's audio quality and hear your music at its best, we'd consider ditching Apple's EarPods in favour of the Sennheiser Momentum In-Ears. They sound great and feature all the necessary in-line controls.
