this is my first post on the forum. Fantastic info, well done!
I am just looking into getting some IEM's, it will be my first pair. I decided to step it up from the stock standard iphone buds. They will mainly be for working out, I lift weights and do plyometric's and what not so I thought these would be better than another pair of buds or headphones. But I'd like them to be a good all rounder, with the benefit of staying in and out of the way during a work out .. if that makes sense?
I saw joker's fantastic round-up and had a good look through that. Problem is I live in Brisbane Australia, and I'm not 100% sure where I can buy alot of those IEM's .. we mainly stock the standard brands like sony, klipsch, sennheiser etc. As such I have been looking at either a set of klipsch s5i ruggeds or a set of sony XBA - 2's. I have read a few reviews saying the XBA - 2's are a great unit but probably a bit over priced. My question is what other mainstream units are available for around the $150 mark, or do any of you know where in the city sells anything worth the money?
I would prefer to spend around $150, but willing to go to $200 if it makes enough of a difference.
