Best Earbud Headphones
Reviews of JBuds, Coby and Sennheiser Earbuds

Here we review five of the best earbud headphones on the market as rated by consumers.

We offer you three by JBuds, one from Coby and one from Sennheiser.

All of them are great options for mp3 headphones.

Our reviews are based on price/value and quality and customer feedback.

Sennheiser CX-300XB

Sennheiser CX-300 Earbud Headphones
Sennheiser, a world leader in headphone transducer technology, has always been at the forefront of the industry putting out headphones that allow the listener to take their listening experience to the next level.

It should come as no surprise then that the ultimate in earbud headphones is the Sennheiser CX-300B Earbuds.

The Sennheiser CX-300XB offers accurate tones for all your music through the high powered range of frequency. The CX-300B earbuds block out any background noise that may be going on around you allowing you to completely enjoy your favorite tunes.

The Sennheiser CX 300XB earbuds can be used with any MD, CD, MP3 and DVD player as well as a number of other portable devices that have 3.5mm headphone sockets.

The ear adapters are made of soft silicone rubber and they come in three different sizes making it possible for each user to get the ideal fit for their ear. With the ear adapter being made of silicone rubber they are also very comfortable to wear.

A few important notes:
  • Comes with a 2 year manufacturer's warranty.
  • Offers powerful, bass driven sound
  • Frequency range 18Hz-21Hz

JBuds Hi-Fi Noise Isolating Earbuds

JBuds Hi-Fi Earbud Headphones
Next on our list are the JBuds Hi-Fi Noise Isolating earbuds. Each earbud is made of silicon and the fit inside the ear canal making for a comfortable fit.

The isolation feature does a solid job on blocking out background noise. Similar to the Sennheiser CX 300XB earbuds; these also come with a set of three pairs of interchangeable buds so that each user gets a customized fit.

These earbud headphones can be used in any iPod, MP3 player, laptop, MD, DVD, radio or other portable device.

The manufacturer claims that these earbuds provide excellent sound quality though there seems to be a mixed response from consumers, some stating that the sound quality is crisp and warm and other stating that the sound quality is flat.

The key to enjoying the benefits of these earbuds is "breaking them" so to speak. Meaning that the more you use them the better the sound quality will be.

This could perhaps be a reason for the newest model of the earbuds, the JBuds J3.

JBuds J3

JBuds J3 Earbud Headphones
These earbuds have been referred to as the "mother ship" of all earbuds. They offer metal housing and components that have been cold forged from aluminum.

They have a tangible L/R ID system, flexible joints, laser cut passport and laser designed logo. Yes, they look really cool!

The JBuds J3s are touted as offering the listener a completely new level of acoustic performance. They are slim designed and have an ergonomic profile offer easy grip and unparalleled ear comfort.

Listening to your music through the J3 earbuds will be better than sitting in the front row at a live concert.

The earbuds come in four different sizes, again allowing each listener to get a customized fit.

Customer feedback on the J3 earbuds overall is good. The main complaint is that there is too much treble in these earbuds, even after the breaking in period.

A few extra notes:
  • They come with JLabs hassle free 1 year warranty.
  • Soft silicone cushions for earbuds come in XS, S, M, L and EL to fit the smallest to the largest ears.
  • Sleek and rugged designer travel case is included.
  • Gold plated 3.5 jack so that there is a no-loss sound connection for your device.

JBuds J2 Noise Isolating Earbuds

JBuds J2 Earbud Headphones
Our final recommendation from JLab's is their JBuds J2 Noise Isolating Earbuds. These earbuds came into creation based on feedback that JLab received from their customers.

They are sleek and slim with a rugged durability. The manufacturer states that they also offer incredible sound quality.

J2s come with three different size adapters to help each listener get a better fit for their ear. A better fitting ear piece allows you to enjoy the "dynamic soundstage" that will bring out every detail in the music you are listening to.

Overall they are good earbud headphones, the sound quality is not the same as Sennheiser or even the JBuds Hi Fi, but still better then the earbuds your iPod or MP3 player came with.

Coby CVE92 Isolation Stereo Headphones

Coby CVE92 Earbud Headphones
Coby Electronics are known for delivering quality products to their customers at an affordable price. Their affordability factor does not mean that they compromise on quality or performance.

The Coby CVE92 stereo headphones feature high-performance 15mm Neodymium drivers with a very lightweight slim design and the important soft earbud design.

Overall consumers feel that these earbud headphones are a great value for the money. You aren't going to get the sound quality of the Sennheiser CX-300B Earbuds.

These are decent earbuds, and you are definitely getting what you pay for.
