In the Ear
The era of the over the ear headphone might be over with Califone’s E2 and E3 ear buds offer high-end audio at an enviable price. Rather than bulky and expensive headphones, these ear plugs are economical, fit into small ears and sound surprisingly good. They work with just about any notebook, iPad, phone or digital music player and come with a 3.9-foot cord that includes a built-in volume control. The earphones cost $4.40 and $4.35 for the E2 and E3.
