Winter Resistant IEM? Or <100$

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Hi,

I live in Canada and it gets really cold at times, to the point where my IEM's cables break...I've had 2 pairs of Shure e2c, 2 JBL Reference 220 and now again my Apple IEM just broke...

So I'm looking for a new pair of IEM to replace them. I haven't been around in while so I'll need an update on the new IEM that came out recently...

I'll be using my iPhone 3GS unamped with them. And I listen to pretty much any music, rock and hip hop mostly..

Thanks for the help!

Come on, there must be an IEM that's built tougher than others out there...either something tougher or cheap...with remote and mic if possible...

Anything with a replaceable cable.  That kind of cold will easily destroy most cables.  You'll likely have to just buy a new one every year.

 

Somehow I read that as water and not winter and was about to direct you here.  Good thing I caught that in time.

Just to let you know I had previous owned the E2C's and the cable problem is well documented and mine broke as well. I don't know what your budget is and how cold it is where you reside. But you might wanna check out Sherwood SE-777s or Shure 215s they both seem great straight from a source. Here was a review:

Good luck!
