Today I had the misfortune of destroying my UE Super.fi 5 Pros. So now I need to replace them ASAP (no headphones on the train to work = me in a very bad mood). I have been reading around the forums here and have narrowed down my choices based on features and price to the IEMs listed below. I'm curious to see what you all think about what I should do. I have been using my 5 Pros for the past 3-4 years (recently with a custom upgraded cable) and really love them. My initial thought was to just replace the 5 pros and be done, but I can't do that without at least looking at upgrades or other models. I listen to all sorts of rock/alternative/indie. Some bands I like are Band of Horses, Muse, Dredg, The Mars Volta, Dear and the Headlights, Akron/Family, Circa Survive, Paolo Nutini, Alkaline Trio, Animal Collective, and lots of others. I don't do rap and sound quality takes precedent over bass level. So here are my current options based mainly on the requirement that I have a replaceable cable. This is not an option, I won't buy IEMs that don't have an easily replaceable cable. So here we go,
UE Super.fi 5 Pros - ~$90-100
UE Triple.fi 10 - ~$180-200
Sleek Audio SA6 - $175
Westone UM2 - $250
If there are other IEMs with a replaceable cable that I missed and are in range of these prices, feel free to recommend away!
Any opinions are appreciated. Thanks in advance!
