Long story short, I had 2 IEMs; a Sony MDR-something something; they were great, but now discontinued. I gave these to a friend who really needed some IEMs as he had no decent ones and he was a piano player and used his iPod heavily; dude needed em.
I also had Senheiser CX250s, which got destroyed; and when I went to go buy more, I found out they were discontinued. So now I'm IEM-less.
I've been IEM-less for months now, and I've just been lugging around my Sony MDR-V6's around my neck happily; but now it's too much. They're too big and cumbersome; at home or when I'm not walking places or need mobilitiy; they're a joy to listen to! But as an on-the-go highschool student, this doesnt suit me perfectly. So I need new IEMs.
Here's my shortlist of what I've chosen to be my next IEM:
Sound Magic E10
I enjoy the sound signature of my Sony MDR-V6s GREATLY and would appreciate an IEM that emulates this. The IEM MUST be durable, comfortable, and the chord must be a usable length; not too short, but not too long. I'm not extremely opinionative on looks; they just cant look bad, and as far as microphonics go, I don't mind a little bit, but nothing to the point where it becomes annoying or unlistenable.
My budget is under 40$.
So which would you choose if you were me? :) Thank you!
