In-ear headsets or headphones are often overlooked by most consumers and manufacturers alike. They are treated as somewhat of the 'child under the stairs' in the fact that most gaming brands seem to have an in-ear contingent (Razer, Tt eSPORTS, ROCCAT etc.), but marketing, product launches and focus is aimed at the on-ear and over-ear audio lines.
