What IEMs have the best build quality

post #1 of 33
Thread Starter 

I'm a newbie 'hear' and would like to know which IEMs have the best build quality?

Audio Technica CK10 and CK100 come to mind when I think of build quality...

Thanks the Audio Technica CK100 definitely look like a quality build

 

Also anyone think the Shure EC5s are better build quality than the SE530 especially the cabling

HJE900... ZIRCONIUM

 

Does it have sound quality to match its build?

SE535s...by a good margin. And I've owned many IEMs over the years.

The HJE is fairly inexpensive now as it is only 90-75 us dollars. i personally have not bought it yet since im waiting for it to go back down to 75 but the build is definitely one of the best. I remember joker saying it was the 2nd best out of ANY IEM. and the sound quality is pretty good i hear. Great bass... great treble...harsh to some. v-shape sound. decent soundstage. def worth the buy... comparable to 200 dollar + IEMs i reckon.

etymotic. ER4P is the best, period.

Of the ones I've used, CK10 and SE535 are in a league of their own.

Of everything I have used the CK10 and CK100 are above everything else in build quality with the best cables in any universal I've had.

The new Shure lineup, the CK10/CK100, IE8, HJE900...don't know much about others.
