Seems like a Great deal! If you get a genuine piece, I will also go ahead and order these. My Creative EP-620 went kaput after just 4 years of use.

Are there good headphones with ear clip for mobile phones? basically,

1. Needs to have a clip or some other mechanism so it doesn't fall off in normal course of walking around.
2. Needs to have the mobile control switch so voice commands can be activated.
3. Not mono aural.

The Nokia E72 came with stereo ear phones and a set of 3 different ear 'bud' tips to fit every ear. They don't have clips, but they don't fall off either. They will last you a while. If you have tried the Nokia Bluetooth headsets, you will find the stereo earphones much more comfortable because the clip on the Bluetooth headsets tend to pinch the ear.

BTW, the thread title - "In-Ear *Monitors*"? Didn't anyone comment on the title of the thread yet?

You didn't mention your budget. But i will try to keep it under $50. A few popular and very good ones mentioned below.

http://www.amazon.com/MEElectronics-...9431452&sr=8-1

Amazon.com: MEElectronics M9P In-Ear 3.5mm Headphone with Control/Talk for iPhone/iPod/Android/Blackberry (New Version with Updated Microphone): Electronics

this is a straighter version of m6. both are excellent in sound. bass of m6 is more than m9. there is new version of m9 too. here:

Amazon.com: MEElectronics M31P-BK In-Ear Headphones with In-Line Microphone/Single Button Remote for iPhone and Smartphones (New Version with Updated Microphone) Black: Electronics

of all the above, i would pick m6p because of way it is worn. it never falls out, no microphonics(sound from wire when it touches our body), great sound quality and build quality for price and superb accessories.

most other IEM with mic are above $50 that includes nuforce ne700x, klipsch s4i and then some more.

SoundMAGIC MP21 Stereo In-ear Earphones with MIC for MP3, MP4, and PC (Black) EP222B - $27.42 - Affordable Headphones


I bought this for use with iphone 4and they are very good as well. the price have come down. i bought it for $25. they are excellent sounding IEMs too. it comes from popular soundmagic PL21. this is its mic version. you can't go wrong with any of the above. the only problem with this is it protrudes outside ur ear a little. so it will cause more wind noise if u r walking, running or biking. apart from that, sound quality and build quality is awesome and last very long. it can be also used to hear songs. 1,2,3 clicks changes track accordingly.

The MM 50 iP is a good option too. but i haven't heard it or owned it. the others above i can vouch for them since i have used them extensively.

Pick of the lot - M6P and MP21. higher budget, get nuforce 770x or 660x.

The website seems to be a cranky one. I could never get to the payment page. It errors out. Not sure how they are selling anything there...

Same here. There payment gateway is broken. That alone rings alarm bells in my mind.

Will try to locate a local seller in Delhi

you can get it from mp4nation.net too. They deliver to India too. Though it may be around Rs.900. But comes with superb warranty.

Klipsch R6. Amazing headphones. Patented buds provide excellent comfort.
This being the reference model, the bass is controlled and not overpowering.
But do note, these come with a flat wire so expect cable noise to be heard when you move around. People usually get used to it but I wouldn't enjoy much if I have to go for a run with these headphones.
