Decibullz Contour

The best thing you can do to keep ambient noise from messing with your music is to spend upwards of $1,000 for custom ear molds. At least, that used to be the case. But newcomer Decibullz has a much more affordable option in its debut headphones, the Contours. Instead of a visit to a professional, all you need is hot water and 15 minutes of your time. The result? Rich sound that stops unwanted interference in its tracks.

RHA S500i

There are a million in-ears out there, but RHA Audio offers a great value with the S500i. Not only are they durable, but they outperform many of their peers at this price point. With a sound performance that's perfectly suited for pop, they're a solid buy for the average Joe. There are better buds out there, but you'll be hard-pressed to find them at such an affordable price. Do yourself a favor and look no further.
