Noob poster here, but long time music listener :-). Anyway, my ER4-PTs w/ custom molded tips just got stolen and I need to replace them. While I totally LOVED the clarity and "uncolored" (i.e. neutral) sound of the ER4's, I totally HATED the way the phones and cables stick straight out of my ears; it makes them hard to work out or run in (in addition to the terrible microphonics from the cable). One thing I have determined is that my next phones MUST have custom fit sleeves - I will NOT go back to "off the shelf" sleeves.
So, the question is: is there a roughly $500 'phone that:
1) Is comfortable to wear while workign out or running (I like Shure's "over the ear" design for this)
2) Offers/accepts custom molded tips/sleeves
3) Has sound quality at least AS GOOD AS my ER4-PT's (i.e clarity and crispness, I do not like "muddy" or "muffled")
4) Does not "color" the audio sound too much (I like to hear my music the way the artist recorded it - I am NOT a basshead :-)
Any thoughts/recommendations on this would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
