I've been using Etymotic for a couple of years now and I am really happy with the sound quality but I've had multiple pairs and they've all broken within a couple of months (and trust me, i took great care of them, especially after the first two times) If the sound quality of scosche is comparable then I'm willing to drop a few extra bucks for a sturdier build. Think these will work for me?
Scosche build is a little iffy compared to the Etymotics. The cable seems a little weaker with the Scosche, from memory. Otherwise, it's a pretty well built phone. Sound-wise, it focuses more on the sub-bass, upper mids with some really harsh treble. I would be wary of the treble, harsh as in lower quality (and sibilant) vs aggressive (Etymotic really is just aggressive).
