Diddybeats High Performance In-Ear Headphones Video Transcript
And the scheme and stylish of your phone's monster may not have a corner on the market but there's no denying that its Beats by Dr. Dre brand is among the more fashionable lines currently available. Unsurprisingly, the Diddybeats, a collaboration with Sean "Diddy" Combs, are no exception. True to form, the rapper/producer was closely involved in the design process of these earphones. Evidence is clear in the details. The earpieces in particular stand out. Wrapped in leatherette and accented in shiny silver. Diddy also had a hand in choosing the color options which are black, white, and a rather nauseating pale pink. The cable which descends from each earbud and terminates here in a reinforced gold-plated L plug is the flat ribbon style that the Beats brand is becoming known for. Features are not sparse either. The Diddybeats feature Monster's Control Talk inline remote and mic for the iPod and iPhones, and the package includes a carrying case and an impressive array of ear tips. I'm also pleased to report that these earphones offer nicely balanced audio playback with good clarity and a bass response that is sufficient but not overpowering. At $150, they're not exactly a steal but they are a solid buy for those with varied listening taste. I'm Jasmine France for CNET and this has been a first look at the Diddybeats headphones.

The Razer Moray in-ear noise-isolating gaming headphones may not distinguish themselves all that much from their in-ear noise-isolating gaming headphones competitors, but they're a perfectly good--and affordable--set of earphones for the money.
While we've heard earphones that sound better for the money, Bose has improved its in-ear headphones so they fit--and sound better--than its previous in-ear model.
Despite some downsides, including a high price tag, the Bose QuietComfort 20 offers the best noise-cancelling in an in-ear headphone.
If you own a new iPod, the Apple In-Ear headphones are a great value. Owners of iPhones and older iPods will have to decide whether the mic and remote compatibility issues are worth overlooking for the substantial boost in sound quality.
The Ultimate Ears MetroFi earphones are a solid step up from stock earbuds, offering improved sound quality and helpful features for not a ton of money. Be wary of fit and durability issues, though.
