    Default Non isolating ear buds / IEMs

    I need a new pair of ear buds for use at work when sat at my desk.
    I don't want any noise cancelling/isolation, and to be honest the cheaper they are, the better.

    They will be used with an iPhone 6, iPod and a Sony HDD Walkman so they need to be fitted with a 3.5mm plug.
    What is available, that sounds good?

    I've got some AKG that came with my work phone (Samsung galaxy note 9) they are wonderful. I'll see if I can find a link.

    Are they suitable for use in the office, or do they block the sound out?

    They are not total noise cancelling, you can still hear other stuff going on.

    Thanks for the suggestions.
    I have two sets of Shure SE215 IEMs, so I am really after something that will let me hear my desk phone ring etc.

    IEMs by design block out external sounds, at least if you have the right size buds fitted. I would have thought this more suitable

    I have a pair and they sound very good.
