Okay, I know it's lame when people don't go through the threads to try to find their answer before they ask, but I'm in a time crunch here. Most recently I've been using Maximo iMetal 590s (which I bought based on reviews on this forum), which I had a pretty bad experience with (more on that later), and their customer service has failed to replace them under my lifetime warrantee, and now I'm about to leave town for a week-vacation. Need a new pair of earphones stat. If any of you could give some suggestions, I'd apprecaite it.
A little bit about what I'm looking for:
$70 or less
Decent to awesome noise-cancellation -- half my listening is done walking along busy streets and I like to block out noise from traffic and douchers hasseling me :)
MINIMAL noise from cable (My Maximos had a cloth cable and it's noisy as hell)
Must be readily available in the US
Clear trebles, with bass accentuated but not necessarily pushed -- I don't listen to rap or metal or anything where the bass should be at the forefront. It needs to sit well in the mix. What I listen to: indie rock, singer/songwriter, indie-folk, classic rock, punk/emo, even some country. So basically looking for a well-balanced sound; if anything is tweaked/accentuated, I spose it would be a little treble, a little bass. I just want a nice full-spectrum sound.
(Lately I've been listening to a lot of Ryan Adams, Gaslight Anthem, The Kooks, Arctic Monkeys, Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin, Kings of Leon, for some examples...)
More specifics might come to me later and I can update those, but this should be a good place to start.
Again I'm really sorry to do this without doing much research first, but I figure I really need to order something....today really, if I'm gonna get it in the post by the end of the week. I really apprecaite any help you guys can provide.
