Hey there, as the title says, I'm looking for some new IEMs. My last pair, the JVC HA-FX40 were pretty decent but the left earphone just died out earlier today, hence why I'm looking for a replacement (they lasted 4-5 months, just in case anyone was looking at the FX40. Obviously I could've gotten a lemon, but just saying; the cable is thin.)
My budget is 75$ shipped, taxes in, etc. CAD. I'm using a prepaid Visa that I got for Christmas to make the purchase, so I can't purchase from places that don't accept that (eBay.)
-So I'm looking for something with good build quality as I want it to last more than 5 months.
-I'm looking for something that are very comfortable too as these will be worn for long periods of time; this is something the FX40's also lacked (they got sore to wear after awhile.)
-I don't need many accessories to come with the IEMs; I don't need a shirt clip or carrying case or anything. These'll usually be carried in my pocket so no need.
-I don't mind a little microphonics, but obviously as little as possible is preferred. I wear my earphones straight down.
-Obviously I want the best sound quality possible; I value clarity and competency over most other sound characteristics. My main headphones are Sony MDR-V6s, and I love their sound signature, so if I could get something similar that'd be awesome.
- IF a mic could come with the IEMs so I could use it with my phone, that'd be great!
- These will normally be driven by a Nexus 5 smartphone or Samsung Series 5 535U3C laptop; as well as basically anything else so these must be easy to drive.
Thanks guys! If anymore info is needed let me know!
