    Hey guys!

    Please post your makes as well as your reasons for choosing them, I need to buy some cans below $100/ 6500INR.
    On other note, does anyone here own Koss Porta Pros? They are awesome!
    Has anyone modded them?

    Please post their images!

    Personally I use either my mom's stock earphones from her iPhone 4S (pre-earpods, thanks mom!) or my actual "pair" (one side broke after I subjected it to a tensional accident) which is a Monoprice 8320. It's pretty cheap, but has kinda big drivers and I liked them. Caveats are the odd design (i didn't mind) and lack of buttons. But for ~$10 or less, can't complain.

    Don't have pics, but have a product page. the fabric cable is nice, but is weird in how it takes twists and stuff. Enhanced Bass Hi-Fi Noise Isolating Earphones - Silver - Monoprice.com

    I have koss porta pros which I absolutely love! Probably the best 20 I have ever spent! however, they leak quite a bit so I have a set of Westone UM1's for my commute and again, they are fantastic, very comfortable, very light, well made. the only complaint I would have is that the UM1's sound a little "boring" for some songs.

    My portas ear cushions/ foam disintegrated, and so I have to find an adequate ear cushion that fit it properly.

    I also have the Nokia Purity Wh-920. I picked them up since they were decent price (should be within your budget) and I knew they would work with the Lumia. Vocals were surprisingly good, the mids in general are pretty good. Highs are adequate, not too harsh but lack real clarity. Lows are decent, but don't really have that deep boom or thump. Sound stage is pretty decent as well. Overall, they are pretty good for the price, plus you have in line remote control and mic. The controls for skipping/pause/play are a bit finnicky though, sometimes it doesn't do what I want. That would be my only complaint. Comes with a nice package, including carrying case and different size ear pieces.

    My other headphones are the AKG K240 MKII and I recently picked up the Audio Technica M50X. Picked up those because they were well regarded in terms of price/performance in reviews I saw. The M50X's are awesome, but they might be just out of budget.

It has a good passive noise isolation Good Bass .. and clear... i recently bought ATH M50 (9000 INR approx). Comparing both the clarity of ath m50 is slightly better thats all. I recomment ATH M35

    Klipsch S4 with my laptop and tablet because of a good balance between sound quality and budget pricing.

    LG Tone+ with my Lumia 1520 because of sound quality and needing Bluetooth with this phone.

    I'm looking for a cheap IEM too. Around 20$. Heard great things about Jvc marshmallows and Panasonic ergo fit 125 something. How are they?
