I have a Sansa Clip+, which I really like, and until recently I was just using cheap Sony headphones costing £9.99. Then I tried the Kilipsch Image S3, which I hated, then changed them for the Soundmagic E10, because of all the rave reviews. But I'm having problems with them.
The sound is very good, but I just hate the cable. It's hard plastic, and as springy as a roll of barbed wire. This means that it never behaves itself - it springs out of the opening in my jacket, and it sometimes presses onto my cheeks, which feels unpleasant. It also produces a lot of microphonics. I feel the makers just haven't put any thought into them.
I like the look of Westone's braided cables, but their products are a bit out of my price range.
So can anyone here suggest some in-ear models I should look at? I can go up to about £60, and I listen mainly to classical music.
Sorry if I sound a bit nit-picking, but those cables really bug me. Thanks.
