Hey all. First, let me say thank you for providing this incredible resource!
I am shopping for new earphones due to an unfortunate user error (left mine on an airplane)
So far, I've used Apple earbuds (hated them), Westone 2s (adored them) and Shure 115s (made me miss my Westones). So I'm shopping again. I'd like something as good as or better than the W2s. But my main challenge with the Westones is that I would occasionally trip on them (I'm 5' tall) and they'd be yanked abruptly out of my ears. Ouch. There goes my dignity. I also may add a SmartTalk so I can take calls on my iphone - but this will make the cable even longer.
So far, I'm looking at a used pair of Westone 3s. I'm also considering saving for the Shure 535s. But I think both of these have long cables (if I'm reading specs right). So what are the terrific IEMs that are suitable for short folks?
I listen primarily to jazz (esp. vocals), Broadway, folk - and a bit of classical, country and rock.
My budget is under $225 for used or under $350 for new.
Thanks for any responses!
