post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 

Hi all

 

My partners Soundmagic E10 have stopped working (right ear) so have requested a refund. 

 

I dont want to get another pair as this might happen again... 

 

Whats a good replacement for them? similar price. 

 

Thanks

Klipsch X10`s maybe, if you can get them cheap enough, don`t pay over $50, around $35 is good, audio technica also offers some good mid tier iem`s at sub $50 prices, the JVC micro hs line is also very good as are most meelectronic earphones, otherwise why not buy another pair of soundmagic e10`s, they have a very good price/performance ratio.

I've had my E10's over 2 years. They are my exclusive yard work iem. I mow, prune bushes, plant the garden, etc with them. Durability has been great. There can be lemons within any model.

That being said if you want to look at something else, try the LG Quadbeats 2.

Wow!! yeah I was a bit surprised when she told me, I asked if she did anything silly but nothing. Just normal use. Have emailed HiFi Heaphones whom I purchased from *Amazon...

 

So see what happens. 

 

Will have a look at your recommendations.

Whoops, meant to say klipsch s4, the s4 II`s have remarkably better build quality, flat cable, proper strain relief and the jack is quite hardy as well, i`ve had my 1st gen s4`s for 5 years and they are still performing great, just watch out for fakes, also I would not recommend the Quadbeats, they have not received too much positive feedback. I would definitely take a look at the JVC Micro HD FXD80-Z`s if they are in your price range, they have metal housings and the cable is quite good.

Maybe have a look at the earphone comparison thread, the fxd80's are very good if you can get them cheap enough, on head fi they are around $40

I asked my partner what type of sound she likes - 

 

'I dont know, just as long as it blocks outside noise'

 

:p
