Looking for EXTREMELY DURABLE IEMs

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

hey guys i've come back in look of some IEM's again My price limit is 60$ with a little flex room if it means improvement 

The IEMs  need a good warranty

The headphones need to be able to stay plugged into my phone and wrapped around it and take the bending

I will be using the headphones with a Samsung Galaxy S2

The sound quality dosent have to be fantastic ( I Was just fine with my Skullcandy heavy metals until i lost them)

 

The last headphones i looked at were a set of monster turbines or these http://mp4nation.net/catalog/brainwavz-m2-iem-earphones-p-390.html

 

anyone with good reccomendations?

 

I listen to Hard Rock, Podcast's and some Hip-Hop or Techno

Etymotic Research MC5?

It's 60 bucks, has a 2 year warranty and is built like a tank.

The sound is neutral and analytical though, and they have very lean bass, which you may not like if you like heavy bass.

The turbines are great for Hip-Hop and Techno, but even with the new L plugs they are still very weak. Definitely not going to be a good choice for you.

I was gonna ask if those mc5s have a good. Cable but then I read and saw they were kevlar reinforced will this help protect the metal cable inside

If you don't like the neutral sound of the ety's, the M2's are also built to last, but with only a one year warranty, while still having a generally fun sound sig.
