These small audio boxes can be further of two kinds - The ones that just sit in the ear cavity and the other ones which get deep inside your ears. The in-ear ones are more noise reducing and offer a better audio experience. The earbuds are equally useful, for example, while commuting, earbuds are a better choice. The sound quality is not bad, but you won’t experience a deeper, richer sound as in case of in-ear headphones.
