Choosing my 1st pair of "nice" IEM's - Page 2

post #16 of 22

The S4 or S4i, based on my experience

They have a thump most people will be satisfied with

They pretty good for the buck

The A151's are good. You just missed their back to school sale which would have given you 30% off. Otherwise, is no one going to suggest the RE0's?

Yeah I own the klipsch s4i and have for 2 years they are great.

If you need bass these really give a thump and they really open up after a burn in

The S4i was ok for me but I hated its freaking cable, was super thin and tangle prone.

I'm no expert - but my 2c.

 

You'll see my post here too - I've owned my s4i's for just over 1.5 years, and although I've enjoyed the sound (even though they're not always the clearest, but the bass is fun), I've found the build quality to be not the greatest. Mainly the cable, the wire is coming out of the jack now and those little rubber shoes under the buds (stress relief I think..?) have split.

 

I've also heard others having the same issues. That new rugged model looks the goods though.

the cord is what I really like about the a151's that and the negatives of taking the shirt clip off the cc51 that people have had problems with...I guess I could always order both and return one but thats such a pain...

 

I just worry about spending 80 dollars on a set of phones to not like them... yikes! lol

Well you could just order both from Amazon for about $100 and return one if necessary. They can give you an refund right after you print the return label if you call them and ask.
