I owned a pair of Crossroads MylarOne X3 for about 2 years. I loved those headphones; loved the sound they made...so much so that I reached for the X3s before the ATH-ES7 or even the Grado SR60. Then, about a year ago, I fried the headphones by turning the volume up on my laptop all the way, not realizing that the phones were still plugged in.
It might sound silly, but I think I actually fell into a state of grief over the loss of the X3s. Everytime I though about the phones, I'd feel a sense of loss. Couldn't even bear to look at them anymore. So, I stashed them away for almost a year, and fell back on the ATH-ES7 and the Grado SR60. But, finally, with the start of a new year, I am ready to go ahead and find a new love.
So, here's my question: what in your opinion would be a good in-ear replacement for the MylarOne X3s? I'd like to stay below the $100 price range, but would consider spending a little more if the quality warrants it. I'll be using the set mostly with the laptop.
