Phew its been a long time of the board, have been having way to much trouble with the PC and so on -.-
Anyway, I've always hated my PFE's, when I first got them, the sound became low on the right side, after a week or so using them.
I got a RMA, but the new pair only lasted about 2 weeks, and it started again, I tried fiddling with the filters, and I figured that if I took the filter out and gently pushed it in, so it was barely held in place, the sound would come back, this solution held be back from buying a new pair or getting a new replacement, also if I wanted a new replacement, it should be shipped to Germany again, as I live in Denmark, and we don't have any retailers selling them.
So now after a while, I want to buy a new pair, and I want something durable, because the PFE's where just to "plastic" feeling for me... So I've read about the Etymotic MC5's which sounds as some really good IEM's for the price, but are there any other I should consider?
I mainly listen to rock and pop, and I don't like dark sounding earphones, I just tried my friends CX300's and they where sounding pretty decent however the bass where a bit muddy and everything felt closed in my a dark filter, the music just didn't shine IMO. The PFE's where a good middleground between the ER4S and darker IEM's, and that's why I loved them for the sound. The ER4S are just to analystic, but are the MC5's the same?
