While I have liked the sound of Etymotic, the build quality seems to be questionable. I am obviously considering going back to them either with an identical pair or the newer MC-5. The other consideration is Shure SE215 or Klipsch S4.
I am not an audiophile and the main time that I use earphones is to sleep at night. So, I listen to more relaxing music like Sting, etc....The wild card consideration is that my wife may borrow these earphones and she is an audiophile who listens to all music from classical to Pat Matheny, etc... so while my needs are simple, hers are more demanding. She too likes what we have had in the past from the ER-6/ER6i (I can't remember which one it is - we use it for ipod).
Can somebody help me narrow the field or direct me to another product that I haven't considered?
