Headphones can be a tricky purchase-since you can't really test them out beforehand, it's hard to know if they'll fit comfortably, sound right, or break on you after just a few uses.

It's always a treat when you come across an item with an enormous number of reviews on Amazon, because that usually means the product works so well that people felt inclined to take some time and let others know about it. The allure of this particular pair of earphones isn't hard to miss: Not only do they have a super low price point, but they come in 15 different color options (including rose gold, matte black, and metallic red), are ergonomically-designed for a comfortable fit that instantly conforms to your inner ear shape, and deliver crisp, high-quality sound while keeping out surrounding noise.

Amazon shoppers love the durability and quality of these Panasonic earbuds, saying they're just as good as an expensive pair of headphones, and actually last a long time. "Compared to MANY other earbuds that I've had that cost $75, $100, $150... These sound as good as any of them. I'm astounded!" one customer wrote. "I use these for running-I figured for $9, I could afford to sweat up a few of these and replace them whenever I needed to. I'VE RUN 1,500 MILES WITH THESE in the last year and a half. I've gone through four pairs of New Balance shoes [and] three pairs of sunglasses and am on the SAME set of earbuds! And, THEY STILL SOUND GREAT!"

Plus, tons of reviewers love that the earbuds actually stay in their ear while they're breaking a sweat. (The ErgoFit comes with three sets of earpads-ranging from small to large.) "I'm used to ear buds getting loose or popping out of my ears easily on my morning walk. These absolutely stay put. Also, no annoying sound of the wires moving as I exercise. These are perfect," wrote one reviewer. (Related: The Best Wireless Headphones for Working Out and Every Day)

For just $9, they're definitely worth testing out!
