I'm currently using the Brainwavz R1 which I've had for a few months now. They're a good pair no doubt but after all this time, the cable has weakened at the adapter and the music cuts out from time to time.


Along with this, the R1 sound a bit veiled.


Are there recommended earphones for a price tag of ~$50 (willing to push it a bit) that meet my needs?


I am currently looking at the following:


Klipsch Image S3 $21.95 (down from $49.99)
Klipsch Image S4-II $45.87 (down from $79.99)

Brainwavz M1 $36.50 ($59.50)
Brainwavz M2 $59.50 ($79.50)
Brainwavz M4 $49.50 ($69.50)
Brainwavz M5 $36.50 ($49.50)

MEElectronics M9P Flat Cable + Headset version $39.99
MEElectronics A151P $58.79 ($79.99)
MEElectronics Sport-fi S6P $59.99

Etymotic Research MC5 $52.87 ($79.00)


These are all under or around the $50 mark on Amazon at the time of posting.

I will need any recommendations to be postable to Australia (that's where I am).


Which of these is the best for my needs? Are there any other I should have a look at?


Thanks for the help.
