Recently my apple in ear headphones broke. The right side quit working. I believe it was due to a broken wire inside the cable. I took really good care of them and they lasted me 4 years but they still quit working due to the broken wire inside the cable. I'm working on putting a new wire on them but in the mean time, I would like to get a set of new in-ear headphones.
I listen to a wide range of music but an not a "basehead". I actually don't like very large amounts of base. I'm looking for some in-ear monitors that accurate rather than over emphasizing of bass. Prior to the apple in-ear headphones, I was using dynamic in-ear headphones and over ear headphones. Once I switched the apple ones with armature drivers, I didn't want to go back to dynamic. To me armature sound crisper and clearer. So I would like my next pair of in-earbuds to be armature driven. (I'd love it if they had at least 2 drivers in each monitor) My budget is $100 or less. Preferably less. I would like the cable to be replaceable/removable.
To summarize what I am looking for:
Less than $100
Preferably 2 Armature Drivers per monitor or one very good dynamic driver
Accurate not emphasized sounding over a wide range of music genres. Not over emphasizing of bass. I don't plan on listening to a lot of rap music but a little every once in awhile.
I looked through the buying guide here on the forums and the one pair that stood out to me the most was the panasonic RP-HJE900. However that earbud has a single dynamic driver and is discontinued. Since it is discontinued the original cable seems difficult to find so having it be removable isn't very helpful if I can't find a replacement for sale.
What are your guy's recommendations?
