Etymotic HF5 vs Vsonic VC1000 vs RE400 for reliability and isolation

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I'm planing to buy comfortable and reliable IEM and after reading lot about them I found HF5, R-50, VC1000, Re-400, JVC HA-FXD80 to fit my budget and needs.

My plans for these IEM are use while using the computer and while commuting and some times for sleeps as well (I need the IEM to isolate well).

I read that R-50 have a reliability issue with the memory wire and it doesn't seems to isolate well ether.

HA-FXD80 have the isolation issue.

So my choices have narrowed down to HF5, VC1000 and RE400.
How is the reliability compared of these two IEM's.
I found some reliability concerns for the HF5 in amazon review that says that the nozzle broke when tried to change the ear-tips. But I didn't found any other issue with them like one side not working after some time.

But some of the Vsonic models have issue like suddenly stop working.
As the VC1000 is new to the market I didn't found any reviews that says about broken situations. How is the reliability of VC1000.

I read lot good things about HF5's extreme isolation capabilities how is the noise isolation of VC1000 compared with HF5.
I'm looking for a IEM that I need to use at least for one year mostly every day. My maximum budget is about $130 with shipping costs.

I appreciate any other recommendation for a IEM for my needs.
