Well starting into this, I love trance music (Anjunabeats, Anjunadeep, Mat Zo, etc.) and other electronic musicians like (deadMau5, Benny Benassi). I even listen to experimental like Flying Lotus and musicians of his nature. I don't like rap too much, neither do I like rock or country or any genre with an actual instrument. After researching for about a day or two, I really can't find anything to suit these needs, as many say that x is better than y, but only if you listen to rock or acoustic music or something like that. I compiled a wish list of the ones that I was comparing below:
Audio Technica ATH-CKM500
Logitech UE 600
(Your Suggestions as well)
Of course I will accept any other recommendation, but with good reasons please. The headphones above and any suggestion need to also be very durable. Owning a pair of Klipsch Image s4 ii, I am now paranoid that it will break since I traded mine in at least 4 times for new ones, after the old ones broke. And the first broken pair were within 19 days of purchase. I didn't do much with them either, no exercise at all, and it surprises me that my Panasonic HJE120s lasted so much longer than them and around 10 times less expensive. Don't get me wrong, they sounded great, but the shoddy building is not really something I want to deal with.
I won't exercise with them (I have my HJE120 for that), but I will occasionally sleep with them. I also will put them in my pockets, and because I like skinnier pants than most, they tend to have a smaller pocket, and thus put strain. For that matter I do not want to purchase the S4 Rugged because I have no use for the controls as I switched to a Galaxy S4 recently. Oval headphones are also my favourite type, and I must recommend anyone the HJE120s for that. A similar fitting would be nice.
To reiterate: A IEM with good sound (for trance/electronic/experimental), no inline controls (perhaps if android compatible, but I really don't care because I tend to switch manufacturers), and most importantly a solid build that can withstand at more than just sleeping with them. Also a warranty would be nice, one that is good. Finally I wish to buy on amazon, as I have around 100 or more in credit.
PS. Heres a list of the current prices of the ones above sorted by price.
Thank you for your time
Pss I live in the US if that helps narrow it down
