Since the low-end earbuds (with cheap single dynamic driver) have reached the point for sound that couldn’t be better rather than varied, I’ve seen they shift to durablity. The overall design plug, cable, housings is built to last.
I got hand-on a pair of metal-body earbuds from LyreBeats
The good: LyreBeats Metal Buds are lightweight, rugged and just sound clear.
The bad: I heard a lot of bass but a bit bloating.
For under $10 – your quest for better earbuds – sound and comfort is over.
LyreBeats Metal Buds is the standard set of earbuds – because they sound better and have a better build quality than any earbuds that packed with your phones.
Package & Accessories
Shirt clip, carrying case
Build & Materials
Metal earpieces, 3.5mm metal L-jack, plastic Y-Split, single-button inline control.
Comfort & Fit
3 pairs of eartips I guest the smallest size would be most suitable for you.
Lows / Bass
Not quite bass heavy but I feel plenty.
But it isn’t right – I mean the accuracy of the beats.
I wish this range is more crisp and defined.
Mids / Vocals
The mid is nice I leave no comment on this range.
Highs / Treble
The treble is clear and pretty detailed. Crank up the volume, it isn’t harsh though. A bit concentrated on the treble making the Metal Buds work great for calls.
