Decent Iphone inline mic earphones

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Upgrading from Maximo IM-490s to a set that includes an inline mic for use with my IPhone 3GS

 

Not looking to break the bank on this set but I would like a better overall pair than my Maximo's. I tend to listen mostly to podcasts on the go but end up listening to music later in the evenings, mostly Rock/Alternative but I branch out sometimes. At home I own a pair of ATH-AD700s and really enjoy their sound, I found the Maximo's to be a bit heavy on the low end but overall enjoyable enough when listening to music and enough isolation to hear well over traffic.

 

biggest considerations

- fit

- natural isolation

- comfort

- more balanced sound than the IM-490s

- a convenient method of storage on person (IM-490s had a nice pouch that fit well in pocket)

- would not like to spend more than $60 high value is a must

 

Thanks for reading and I hope to hear from you all.

Klipsch S4i perhaps.

You could try the Brookstone/Clear Dual Drive Earbuds. The price recently went up to $70, but there is a 25% discount code (last day is today) available - 25SEPT which knocks the price down to around $65 + tax (shipping is a steep $12).

 

There are some reviews here and here

Comparing the Nuforce 700m and Klipsch S4i with the Maximo iM490s as well as considering that I enjoy the sound of my AD700s, which do you suspect I might be happier with?
