The JBL LIVE 100 is widely considered to be a great Canal Earphone at its $55 budget. The Shure SE112 (2014), however, while also a good product at this price point, doesn't stack up against its competitors quite as well.

The JBL LIVE 100 was loved by reviewers at Wirecutter (NYTimes), a highly trusted source that performs reliable in-depth testing. It did great in its "The Best Earbuds Under $50" roundup where it was named its "Also great", which, in itself, makes it a product worth considering.
