I have seen a few posts on Klipsch Custom 3 here, but I cannot make out if they're good value at $109 or not. I am aware of the cable issue with them, but in temrs of sound, they seem to get rated along side TF-10, SE530 and some of other more expensive phones.
I owner ER6i, and am looking for a replacement. I am evaluating the following:
1. Klipsch S4 - Fun on many tracks, but too aggressive/bassy on several others.
2. Ety MC5 - Have heard good things about them. Hoping their clarity is atleast as good as or better than er6i. Have also ordered Fiio E5 to see if they make a difference to the bass
3. Ety er6i - Always an option to go back to them. Loved their detail and clarity, but I would prefer something with more bass now.
Also seriously considered RE0, but even though I am sure I will love the detail, I think I would like something more bassy this time. Would like to try DBA-02 as well, but do not have the patience or time (I leave for international travel next week and want to get the earphones before that).
Any thoughts on Klipsch Cutom 3? Would it be worth it to atleast try them for comparison? Or, are they to be totally ruled out for some reason? Is the cable problem really that bad? Anyone satisfied / delighted by Custom 3 here?
