Hey, I'm looking to get some new earphones after my Klipsch Custom 2s gave out on me (after just one year!) and since I'm getting a full refund on them, I wanted to try something else that hopefully will last longer. I've been looking around and found that the current one to get is the Image S4, but I've also heard some pretty ravey reviews about the PL-50. My concern with the PL-50 is that it only comes with a one year warranty as opposed to Klipschs 2 year warranty and from my experience with earphones, the longer the better. Does anyone have any experience with the durability of the PL-50s? I do take decent care of my earphones so I like them to stick around for a while, especially when I'm paying around £60 for them.
Some other headphones I was considering were: Shure Se102, SE115, Philips SHE9850/00 (Again only one year warranty) and the Etymotic MC5, but I've heard about reliability issues with Etys so not too keen on them.
I listen to a wide assortment of stuff, mostly acoustic, jazz, some rock and ocassionaly dabble in hip hop.
Any suggestions you guys would like to add before I put some money down on some Image S4s?
