My Phonak PFEs are falling apart - both wires have already cracked near the drivers, and they're hanging on with some electrical tape I've wrapped them with. I'm sure they'll end up snapping before long, so I need to get a replacement.
I've been quite happy with the PFEs (outside of the build quality!), and I have enjoyed their accuracy and detail compared to all prior headphones I have owned. However, I was never really satisfied with their low-end performance. I had to switch filters and use the bass boost on my amp and EQ just to get what seemed to be a balanced sound, and by doing that I am fairly certain it sacrificed accuracy and SQ in the process.
Does anyone have any recommendations for IEMs that have a great soundstage, an excellent low end, as well as good isolation and comfort? I'm hoping to spend less than $150 .. significantly less if possible.
