As usual, a newbie coming to the forums asking for advice.
I've rolled with Creative's EP 630s for about four years now, and when the last pair broke, I decided to try some other in-ears. I went to try two other pairs (both Philips), but they just aren't for me. I've always liked the 630s because of their isolation and comfort, but each pair broke every 6-9 months, no matter how careful I was. And as a player of digital drums (Roland drums) and a bicycle enthusiast, I'm looking for a set of IEMs that insulate well enough so that I don't hear the drums (the sound produced isn't acoustic), manage to make biking soundless (except for the music), and also produce nice audio (mainly for rock/indie rock/pop). I've got a budget of around €200 (~300$), but am willing to increase that if it is highly recommended that I do so.
I've already been doing some looking around, but I'm no expert... Thanks for any advice!
