Last year I got UE 600vi (compromise with my dad who gifted it to me) which was good for the lightness and smaller size but the cables broke in a year. I'm not that rough on cables but because I usually use them on my desktop/phone and accidentally clip or pull them while I move.
Anyone have recommendations for an IEM that isn't as big as the monster turbine because I have small ears and those sometimes hurt after I wear them for long durations at a time, as well as good cables that are relatively strong and won't break with some rough handling?
I did look at shure earphones but noticed that their detachable cables were a pro as well as a con since I might rip them out if I accidentally clip it. ~$150-250 CAD is a good range although I am willing to consider more expensive alternatives. At this point I'm debating whether to simply get another pair of monster turbines since they had decent sound for their price range and lasted me quite a while. Or blow my budget an get a pair of IE8s.
