Could the Audio-Technica ATH-CK7 be the best inexpensive earphones? Yes, these are real bad, bad boys. Move over Shure and Etymotic. Comfort is 9.5/10. Sound is 9/10. Looks is really bad at 9.50/10.

-Titanium construction to minimize structural resonances and for durability, light weight and portability
Audio-Technica ATH-CK7's in-ear design forms an acoustic seal that blocks background noise and provides direct sound transmission for increased fidelity at lower volume.
Superior design, advanced engineering and high performance materials are used throughout thus allowing you to hear and enjoy the true fidelity of your source electronics and recording. The outer shell uses titanium to minimize minute resonance that can degrade sound quality. Titanium is also durable and light weight thus ideal for portability. 11 mm drivers deliver tight, deep and realistic bass, extended treble and high fidelity. Rare-earth neodymium magnets offer maximum sound quality and minimum size. Gold-plated mini plug provides exceptional corrosion resistance, superb signal transfer due to high conductivity and low noise.
