Ok, so I just joined Head-Fi and I just started getting more into an audiophile. Anyway, I'm looking a pair of in-ear headphones for under $150 to replace my Klipsch Image S4i II's which, when I plug them in to any 3.5 mm jack, don't want to touch the left side of the jack so the audio is either partially there or completely gone most of the time unless I apply constant pressure. Some pairs that I have already taken a look at are: V-MODA True Blood Revamp (buying for sound quality, not TV show), Klipsch Image A5i Sport which are pretty new so I haven't been able to find many customer reviews on them yet, Velodyne VPulse, Shure SE 215, VSonic GR06, and the Sony MDR XB90ex. I need a pair that are very durable as I want to be able to work out with them and I also fall asleep listening to music and I'd like for them to have pretty good bass and nice noise isolation. I listen to a lot of rock and alternative music, some electronic, and a little pop.
I'm no audio expert but here are some artists that I listen to frequently just to give you a better idea of what kind of music I listen to:
Twenty One Pilots
Walk the Moon
Alice In Chains
I always like to do a fair amount of research whenever I'm buying something that costs a decent amount of money or more so it's really important that I get the best bang for my buck and buy something that will last a while. I have now gone through 3 pairs of Klipsch S4i's (two of the first model and one of the second). The second pair that I got was because I saw that Klipsch has a 2 year warranty so I returned the first pair to Best Buy (where I got them) for a free 2nd pair.
Thanks for the help guys!
