I recently saw Unbox Thrapy's


 video on these headphones for $21.99 vs a pair of $80.00 Beats.

They said they could not tell a difference. 

What gadgets have you found that are cheaper but better than the expensive versions?

This just in - people overpay for heavily marketed audio products and the perception of a higher quality/price product is manifested in the way people think they sound.

Some great cheap earbuds out there that sometimes perform better than expensive audiophile equipment.

  I love these, too. Good sound, although I keep the volume low it is still clear. I have an older set that is pale pink to complement my pink iPod. I have an iPod Touch that is silver and bought Panasonic black earbuds for it. I don't like the fit of Apple earbuds.

41k is a lot of reviews but : 

It has a A grade from fakespot

Panasonic is a well known brand and the scammy fake reviews are generally from cheapo fly by night companies.    I wouldn't expect a big name brand to risk stooping to spamming fake reviews at Amazon.

Plus the ear buds are only $8 from a name brand so its not like there is a need to scam people into buying them.

audio quality can be largely subjective.  ignore price and use what sounds good to you.  people are such status whores these days.

  Audio preference is largely subjective, but headphones that give 0% distortion and absolutely flat frequency response throughout the audible spectrum are better quality than those that don't, unless they're uncomfortable or give you a rash.
