“After sifting through literally hundreds of options, seriously considering nearly 150 models, testing the top 40, and calling in audio experts to blindly evaluate the top 20, we’re pleased to report that if you want to buy an inexpensive pair of in-ears, you should get the Panasonic RP-TCM125 Ergo Fit,” Lauren Dragan reports for The Wirecutter.
“They sound good, have a one-button remote and mic, fit well, come in a variety of colors and cost less than $15,” Dragan reports. “There is a reason there are no direct comparison reviews on headphones in this price range: there are just so many of them. Researching and evaluating everything currently in the marketplace was a daunting and unbelievably time-consuming task. Fortunately, we at the Wirecutter aren’t afraid of hard work. So we set out into uncharted waters to answer the questions that anyone who has stood at a kiosk in the airport or browsed Amazon and Best Buy have wondered: “What the heck should I get? Are any of these really any better than the Apple EarPods?” How we got the answers is a long process.”
