I'm looking for a pair of IEM's that have good sound quality AND build. I own a pair of Ultrasone 780's (over the ear) which I like the sound of but they hurt my ears after extended periods of use.
I also own a pair of Nuforce Ne-7's. They sounded great (slightly heavy on bass) but stopped working after a couple of months.
The Bose IE2 has great sound, and i absolutely LOVE the way they fit in my ear. They NEVER fall out when walking, at the gym, anywhere and remain comfortable. Unfortunately I can tell that they are starting to break down with the iPhone controls starting to act strange.
So. Can anyone suggest an IEM that is designed similar to the Bose IE2 where the eartip fits that way in your ear, has similar or better sound quality (fairly balanced with a decent amount of bass) and that will not break down on me through everyday use.
I would be content with keeping the Bose IE2's if they were more reliable but I have read online of others having the same troubles that I have experienced so buying a new pair wouldn't fix my problem.
Let me know, cheers!
