This is my first post to the forum. I would like to get a high quality set of IEMs but I am a bit unsure what to go with as I don't have experience with anything over $150.
I just tested some Focal Diablo Utopia speakers with a Burmester amp in my home for the weekend and figured I really should upgrade my earphones since I spend more time with those than anything.
I will mostly be listening to my iPhone 5 with Spotify's extreme quality. I could get a small headphone amp if necessary but I would prefer a pair that works well without an amp.
My current pair is a the Klipsch S4i which I prefer to my previous pair of Etymotic HF3s because they have more bass. I mostly listen to pop music and occasionally classical music.
I need something durable with a remote that can control my iPhone and it would be nice to get something water resistant (not a deal breaker though).
I would also like to be able to easily remove and insert the IEMs if possible. I usually listen to 3-4 hours a day worth of music and podcasts.
Right now the top choice is the Shure SE535...but I know there are others I should be considering.
Thanks in advance for any recommendations.
