I would say get a couple of pairs of cheap as chips IEMs, Treat them as disposable.
If you casn listen t music and notice the sound from the headphones, are you trying hard enough??
Or am I missing something here.
What if I'm trying my best in the gym and I can still hear and appreciate the better sound quality from these IEM?
So you're saying when you exercise, if you do, you can't tell the difference between let's say W1 and W4? I certainly can, and I prefer that little inch of better quality even in the midst of working out.
With that said, I'm not rich enough to be blowing $500 every few months because these keep breaking, which is why I created this thread to see if there are any high end iem that can take the punishment. I might give this one more shot and if the next one still breaks, I'll probably go with some cheap ones I guess...

If must need IEMs with deep insertion then GR01, CK10, HF5, ER4P/S, DBA-02, Heir Audio 4Ai, UE900(highly recommended for sound quality, portability), RE272, PFE232 are recommended.
Thanks for recommendation, I prefer IEM with deep insertion, so i'll look into the reviews of those you listed. Since there are already two mentions of the er4s, I might go check them out in store tmr.
