Hey guys, I'm looking at buying a relatively nice pair of IEMs, and I've narrowed my choices down to two, the Jays A-Jays Three and the Klipsch S4. I'm not an audiophile by any means, but both of these IEMs have been reviewed to sound great for their respective prices. I'm going to be using these IEMs for most casual things--listening to music, watching videos/movies, etc. I may exercise with them, but I'd rather not get expensive (for me :P) earphones nasty, so I'll keep that to a minimum. Also, noise isolation is important to me as I'll be using them when to study to help drain out some outside noise. That said, both of these IEMs look promising, but there are issues with both that are holding me back from making a final decision:
1) Cable: How is the flat cable on the A-Jays Three? I've read that it really does keep tangle-free, but at that expense, they feel a lot heavier on the ear and tend to fall out more. Also, I've read that the flat cable tends to get stiff and harden when it's cold, and thus makes it weaker and the cable becomes very brittle--can anyone confirm this?
2) Comfort: I've read overwhelmingly good reviews on the comfort of the Klipsch S4, so it seems safe to assume that they are comfortable. However, on the A-Jays side, I've read reviews on both extremes--some say they are very comfortable, and some say they aren't comfortable at all. I'm not sure if that disparity is due just to a lack of break-in, but it is a bit worrisome.
3) Noise-isolation: I actually haven't seen the noise-isolation capabilities of either one reviewed much, so any input on this would be great.
4) Build quality: This seems to be the main kicker for the Klipsch--the build quality (and design, but the Klipsch don't look too bad) of the A-Jays seems much better. Since the cord of the Klipsch is not replaceable, I would hate to have to replace the earphones themselves just because of a messed up cord. Can anyone review the build quality of the Klipsch (or I guess any input on the Jays would be nice too)--the cord, the earbuds themselves, the plug, etc.
Of course, any other issues that I might have missed and you find important, do tell. While I am semi-sure I'm going to buy one of these two, I'm still open for suggestions. My price range is around $80 tops. Thanks in advance!
