Recommendation for tangle-free EP's with remote control

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

I already own a set of A Jays 4 earphones but find that they are too large to fit in my ear canal. I have the Comply foam tips which are great but even then these earphones do not fit snugly into my ear canal and I have to really push them in hard to make them stay firmly in.

 

So.....what other tangle-free w/remote control earphones options are there please?

 

Thank you.

Where do you live and what's your budget?

Hi there and thanks a lot for replying.
Sorry for the delay but I never got an alert email telling me that someone had replied to my thread.

I live in London. I would say my budget is around £100 or $160US.

What earphones did you have in mind? I have a-jays fours which I really like the look of but the problem with them is that they don't fit into my ear canal very well, the plugs are quite wide in diameter.

I can't give a proper answer.

However, I do suggest to keep an eye on this thread, maybe a few offers pop out you could consider.

I like the Etymotic hf3, but the sound might not be appealing to you.

Shure se215 (doesnt have a microphone) They're big but the nozzle is thin and the foam tips are comfortable. The blue version is a bit more expensive and the sound signature should be closer to the jays and the cable is almost tangle free.

Tbh I'm not really keen on over the ear ones. I just want standard in ear monitors.

In the mean time, I found someone on eBay who is selling longer tips for ajays. I'll wait for them to arrive and see if they improve the fit.

Thanks.
