in-Ear recommendations? 100$ and below

post #1 of 27
Thread Starter 
So i'm planning to buy an in-earphones(i don't know if the term is correct, it has earbuds lol) this week. I'm a normal user, any music will do and i usually spend 1-5hrs listening to music. I broke my last earphone (Philips, worth 20$) and i would like to replace it asap. So here it goes, all i want is something that can handle any music perfectly and ofcourse durable (almost all of my earphones won't last 2 months and all of them are Philips). I've done some searching and i have found some in-ear with good reviews but pretty outdated (if im not mistaken). Philips she6000,sennheiser ie60 and ie7, ue500, klipsch s4 and x10.. I don't if these are good ones, so please help me decide which one to buy. If you have other recommendations, i'm open for suggestions and please state why should i buy it. Btw my budget is 100$ and below. I use Psp3000/androidphone(withMOD)/ipodnano6thgen for listening and I'm from Philippines, might help smily_headphones1.gif Thanks in advance guys!

Klipsch S4, one of the best pairs out there, even compared to some higher price-range models.

Ive done some research awhile ago and found out that that chord of s4 isn't that durable. Any other suggestions with almost same price range as s4, thanks though mate.

I can say in my roughly 4 years of owning the S4's I've never had a problem with the chord... I beleive they also make a version with a tougher cable... Search for the "Image S4i Rugged".

The references just have the different look, come with 4 pairs of tips instead of 3, and the chord is slightly different (I'm not quite sure how). Sound shouldn't be any different.

So what'd you think? The durability? Reference looks better though, unlike the shiny silver of s4, reference looks classy. S4 cost 103$ at macstore while s4 reference cost 105$. Btw ive saw trusted online seller selling s4 for 20-30$. Any suggestions?

If you like the look of the references, give them a shot. I kinda like that colour scheme to haha. I'd we werry of anyone selling them for 20-30$, but I don't know, maybe it's possible? I don't think the buds will sound any different from one another.

Also, if you can push you budget slightly, check out the Shure SE215... Read lots of good about them and they are also an earbud out of their league ...

I doubt that shure se215 is available here in philippines. All i can see is jays, philips, bose, brainwavs, mee, marsh, akg, sennheiser and klipsch. I dont know if i forgot something

Hello!

I see you listing the Klipsch Image X10 above. If you can find it under $100 that would be a bargain! It's fore sure better than the S4.

Hope this helps!

I would like to point out that there's no headphones/IEMs which can handle all music genres "perfectly", only ones those can do everything "about right". Just saying
