Need a IEM Recommendation

Budget: $300-$350

Purpose: For use when commuting everyday, looking for a noise isolation/noise cancellation one

I'm using iPhone 7+

Currently, im looking at Sony XBA-300AP, Sony XBA-N3AP and the Audio Technica ATH-LS200iS but I'm still undecided.

Looking for opinions on these IEMs and suggestions of other IEMs, i mainly listen to pop.

Thanks in advance!

both provide noise isolation just like the Sony and Audio-Technica stated.

I believe you are referring to "noise isolation" rather than "noise cancellation" as the latter requires battery to run active noise cancellation.

The LS200is is a very clear sounding IEM but lacks a good punch, otherwise its a very nice sounding IEM for the price.



I'm assuming you listen via Spotify? Another great option is the JVC FD02, great built and excellent sound overall. https://www.stereo.com.sg/shop/earph...-solidege.html was sold out at Stereo the last time I went with another friend but he ended up with a true wireless Jabra E65T....
