I'd like to make an investment and get my first pair of decent IEMs. I've been looking at a few different options such as Yamaha EPH-100, RHA MA750, Shure SE215, 1More Triple Driver and KEF M200. I like good isolation and less sound leakage, price range is about £100 ($125 or so) but I am willing to spend more if it's worth it.

I absolutely love the design and everything I've read about the Yamaha EPH-100. My only concern is that some people are reporting that they just die after a while due to moisture issues. Is it really risky and should I absolutely stay away from them? I'm planning to get them through Audio Affair UK and they offer a 2-year warranty (even though under product features it says 1 year, everywhere else it says 2 years) so if I can use them for 2 years my purchase would be justified.

Alternatively, do you have any other suggestions?

 

Given that they are still in demand, I don't think you should stay away from them.

 

I bought my 2nd pair a month or so ago, after using my first pair for nearly 3,5 years. They didn't break btw, but were in a bag that was lost/stolen.

 

So if you love the design and the reviews, it's up to you if you want to "risk" it. You have to figure that because there were some problems with some of the items, is that really representative of the quality? My guess is that the minority of unlucky people to have had their earphones break on them are vocal about it (as they should), so it might skew the perspective a little. Others have used and still use them for many years.

 

Obviously I can't look into your wallet, but for the price Audio Affair is asking I'd say it's a reasonable deal, especially with warranty being offered. There's also someone selling them for €60,00 on the sale/trade forum, but I have no idea about the condition and if they're genuine.

Thanks a lot for your reply! That's encouraging as I really want to give them a go. And I definitely agree that people are more likely to be vocal about it if they've had a faulty pair.

A read a few pages back that someone revieved their 100s by using compressed air. Just wondering if they took apart the screen or just blew compressed air into the dead side.

Hi, bought these yesterday. The sound is pretty good, but even the smallest pads feels too big for me, did someone search for any cheap replacement pads for these ?

I had issues with fit due to the larger than typical diameter of the nozzle. I tried all the included tips and bought others, however could never really get a decent fit, which is a shame as I loved the sound. I hope this isn't the case for you but I've come across this as being an issue frequently. I think I have smaller than typical ears.....
