Posting this here because I had it in the wrong area:
Hello everyone, I'm actually having a struggle right now (yes, it's very real) of what IEM to get. I've had my Ultimate Ears Triple Fi. 10 for years, and everyone has their reasons for upgrading, mine is somewhat that they don't really fit all that well, they're very large and fairly unattractive, I like the sound, but obviously there's better out there, and I've decided it's time to move on (or up).
So my question here, is without getting into custom IEMs are there any real upgrades to the TF10s that are around $300 (up to $400 if it's really necessary)
I've got a couple of restrictions and thoughts though;
-Must have a replaceable cable, I just can't seem to get a pair of IEMs that the cable will last more than a year or so.
-I DO NOT care about the sound signature, I EQ them straight out ipod and via dac, that being said, I mostly listen to trance, progressive house, ambient...
-I don't really like wearing them over the ear I normally wear them straight down, but I suppose if it's a really good fit, I'd be willing to.
Top recommendations so far:
T-Peos H-300 ($275)
JVC AH-FX850 ($370)
