Earphones ~£50

Simple question; I'm looking for a pair of cheap earphones around £50. I will use them for some gaming, music, etc. Anybody have any recommendations? Thanks in advance!

Are we talking about headphones or actually in-ear earphones?

If the latter, you might be able to find Klipsch S4 II (or the original) for that price

Would always recommend SoundMAGIC E10s.
Absolutely amazing earphones for barely any money there's a version with an in built mic which I bought my friend, too. May be good for gaming if you use voice coms at all.

Thanks again, I was acually checking those out, and they look quite good!

EDIT: I've bought the E10s. Hope they are good!

Thanks. Is it true that the build quality is a bit dodgy (I saw this on amazon reviews)?

Not really. They look quite a bit more expensive than they really are. I have the gold and black version (the gold bit looks like copper to me) and they feel nice and solid. I've used them in the gym (tugged on the cable every now and then, no problems), on my bike, never really took care of them and they are good to go.
