I am trying to find the right earphone to replace my westone UM2's that have the common failing left channel (scratchy, cutting in and out). Ironically, these UM2's were doing this from day one, and I sent them in for repair, only to be told there was nothing wrong with them.
I am looking for something with powerful bass that is not overbloated (monster turbine pro gold, IE8's, Westone 3 or 4's, Hippo VB) etc etc
I listen to a wide variety of music, including pop, techno (BT), and some classic Rush/Zep/Floyd......usually on cell phone with 320kbps MP3's, but would not make a selection based solely on that info....also may try a headphone amp if that helps.....$400ish plus or minus budget, but would like to try custom molds before I die too.
I do love the way the UM2's fit, and never fall/pull out, something I may be afraid of with the Monster turbine design
Anyone have any recommendations/suggestions/
