Default earbuds to plug in phone <$50

Im using my over ear head phones but they are too loose for good sound. I have to hold them to my ears and my arms get tired after awhile.

I just ordered a pair of these:

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

The reviews are good, but I haven't had personal experience yet. I don't do well with standard ear buds, so I hope these fit better.

I shopped around a lot and good sounding buds are expensive.

I found JBL true wireless buds that sound great! and the wireless is so much better!

These are only $19 over your budget.

I've been using them for a couple of days, and I'm pretty happy with them. They are the first pair of ear buds that fit comfortably and stay in my ears.

RHA Audio in Scotland make excellent in ear buds, both wired and wireless. At the moment they have a sitewide offer of 60% off. I have both wired(750i) and wireless (TrueConnect), the sound quality is superb and they come with a metal card with different sizes and types of tips for a good fit. 50 day return policy and 3 year warranty. The TrueConnects are a little over your budget but with this discount are an excellent buy.
