Radius' Atomic Bass Earphones Are Affordable, Stylish and Worth Every Penny

Earphones That I Still Can't Believe Are Only $50

In my day, I've tested out my fair share of earphones. Oddly enough, I'm not one of those people that can wear Apple's standard earphones — call it abnormally shaped ears, I don't know, I just can't wear em'. I definitely have a top three list of earphones that rock my world, but the problem is, they are waaay too expensive. And when I say overpriced, I mean you can't just run out and buy another pair if a) you lose 'em or b) they get trampled on at the gym (it happens).

I talked about Radius last year when they debuted their line of colorful ultra light aluminum earphones; well, this year they're back with a new line of ergonomic, oh so hip, and perfectly-fitting earphones called the Atomic Bass Earphones. Now a pair of these earphones are $50, and I know $50 isn't considered "cheap" but let me tell you, they offer the same sound quality as a $150 pair. If you want a cheap pair that offers zero bass, then pick up a $20 pair, but these ones output sound that is crystal clear and they have bass! Personally, I love me some bass with my tunes and these deliver just the right amount.

And did I mention they fit comfortably in your ear (they come with three different sizes of silicone ear pieces), are available in silver, black, and red and they include a high performance mic?! Yes, they are iPhone 3G friendly indeed.

I also have a heck of a time finding earphones that fit in my ear and don't fall out when I'm running. And ones in which one side doesn't stop working after 3 months. Guess I gotta look somewhere else than Walmart, eh? :P

Glad I could help SB Marilyn! I was actually shocked at how impressed I was with them. They seriously compare with a $150 pair I have.

I have a pair of the In Ear Apple ones (why they call it in ear while the ear buds are in ear as well I don't know) but I wanted a pair that had a mic, which Apple doesn't make. Actually they quietly discontinued the in ear ones as well. I'm going to buy a pair of these today. Thank you!

the apple ones suck so badly. anyway, i do have that "abnormally shaped ears", so i HAVE to use the inner ear ones. I usually buy something in the range of a maximum of 50bucks. the cheaper the better because i tend to step on it or 1 earpiece lands in my coffee or i accidentally rip one side off or lose it altogether. I also have the tendency to lose those stupid silicon ear pieces and it's so difficult to find the replacements sometimes (it comes in 3 sizes but only 1 size fits for me), and i end up buying a new set altogether. argh. those are cute, but am not a fan of colored earphones for myself.

I hate the Apple ones - even the in-ear headphones. They absolutely SUCK. I am using a pair my dad gave me now which are supposed to be some really good/pricey brand (can't remember) but they are SO MUCH better compared to the Apple ones which inevitably "leak" sound and fall out of my ear CONSTANTLY. Plus they are such a rip off.

the apple earphones don't fit me either....but $50 is quite a bit steep.

I honestly dont think I have worried enough about my earphones to warrant a trip to the electrical store to buy superior/pricey ones. Unless I had money to burn, of course.
