First — sorry for yet another "please recommend an IEM" thread.
I'm a big fan of the sound and comfort of the older Westone ES series, but two sets I've owned have been fairly unreliable under heavy use. I've had driver issues but the biggest consistent issue were the cables, which kept breaking at the pins.
I'm in the market for new in-ears —a driver in my ES2s went bad after three years and I was quoted close to a $300 repair — and am wondering if anyone can make any recommendation for a high-quality set that might hold up a little better with daily use. The new Westone ES20s have a coaxial-type cable which seems sturdy but bulky. Older Ultimate Ears had the two-pin cable, but they were inset a bit into the body; I'm looking at the UE 4 Pro but it seems the new cables are similar to the older Westones in that they are a two-pin connection flush to the body. I also have heard great things about JHAudio's ears, but their cable connection looks identical to the older Westones.
Any recommendations are highly appreciated. Thanks!
