If you're looking for a more affordable option, the 1More Triple Driver earbuds may suit you; they are significantly less expensive and come with a microphone, making them good for on-the-go calls. However, if you prefer a premium audio experience and don't mind spending more, the Audeze LCD 2 Classic headphones would be your choice. They provide superior sound quality and are especially good for home use since their open-back design offers a more immersive soundstage but also means they leak sound and don’t isolate noise as well. Keep in mind, the Audeze headphones are much heavier and may benefit from the use of a dedicated amplifier for optimal performance. Give Feedback

Sound Guys

Adam Molina | April 2022
"For under $99 USD this has a good sound that, when paired with the build quality and design, makes for a solid pair of everyday buds. Should you get them? If you’re tired of buying cheap earbuds and want to treat yourself to something a little nicer, I say go for it."

The Greatest Song

Greatest Song Team | August 2023
"These headphones outdo rival planar magnetic headphones, especially in terms of dynamics. Compared to the Hifiman Ananda or the Hifiman Edition XS there is noticeably more slam in the sound, particularly in the bass. The LCD-2C gives you a fantastic sense of quiet dynamics with crystalline precision. This is evident also in our clinical tests, where it’s just easier to understand spoken text at very low volumes."
