Looking to replace my Shure SCL3s. I love the clarity of the SLC3s, they're the best IEMs I've ever owned. I previously had Shure SE110s and they didn't compare in quality or comfort.
Unfortunately my SCL3's are on their last legs...they go out and are spotty (which is incredibly annoying). I've been trying to find a suitable replacement, but so far nothing I'm happy with. I won't go back to the SE110s. I purchased Klipsch X10s and didn't like them. They sounded ok, but weren't nearly as good at isolation as the Shures SCL3s with the foam tips and the cord noise was unbearable - louder than the music while walking.
I also tried Klisch Image S4 and was unimpressed. They didn't sound great, they didn't have anything like the clarity of the Shure SCL3s. I'm sure some of the Shure's appear is from the good seal I get with the black foam tips.
So, no I'm at a loss. I don't really want to spend more than $100 if I can avoid it.
I'm considering the MEElectronics A161P...maybe I'm just attracted to them because they look similar to the Shure SCL3s.
I think I prefer the sound from balanced armature over dynamic drivers...I really like the clarity.
I listen to a wide spectrum of music - rock, indie, classical, jazz, alt country.
