I've been scanning a variety of threads, seeing that I am looking for earphones to replace the current ones (generic HTC that came with my G1). They are not IEMs and as a result have generally poor sound, especially when outside where it's noisy (I'm in the city). One of my major reasons for wanting to upgrade though, is because I hate having to readjust my earphones every 30 seconds or so because they are falling out. Which makes my walks/jogging a pain to enjoy. So I am looking for something to assist in that regard (something with an around-ear clip sort of thing). But, I have tried an IEM in the past and I remember being annoyed by the feedback by breathing or cable movement, which I believe you guys refer to as microphonics?
Anyway, I read a big thread made by someone here that listed a TON of earphones with build quality, sound, accessories, etc but it's so many and overwhelming to say the least. I mean, I have heard some earphones named repeatedly (RE0, Senn IE7, Klipsch Custom 2 but heard it has bad microphonics?)
My priorities are as follows:
1) Feedback / Microphonics (if they are IEMs)
2) Some sort of assist built-in or as an included accessory to keep the darn things on/in my ears
3) General sound quality
4) enhanced bass is a plus, not required (I mostly listen to rock... think NIN, SoaD, Deftones, etc)
5) Price. Preferably $100 or less but I am willing to consider going above if it meets all the criteria
I appreciate any suggestions and advice provided.
