Here's the story: my etymotic er4p have been good to me for the past 2 years but one channel is screwed up. I love the etymotic sound but the apuresound replacement cable is simply too expensive. I want to know if there are any $300 iems that retain the ety sound as i'm not too fussed on having loads of bass. I would prefer upgrading over buying a new pair of etys.
As a reference I have a cowon d2, zune hd and cowon s9 as well as the following iems: head direct re0, super fi 5, shure e2c.
need new iem with ety sound to replace er4p
Thanks for your help head fi
