Save yourself despair by placing a drop of Gorilla Glue around the IEM connections at: each monitor, the Y connector, the jack. I firmly believe most failures occur at these stress points (twisting, pulling).
Progressive rock: Yes, Genesis, Moody Blues, UK, Peter Gabriel, Steve Hackett, Asia, John Wetton, ELP, Pink Floyd, Saga.
Techno: Chemical Brothers, Crystal Method,Tiesto.
I favor a balanced sound as opposed to V-shaped or bass-thumpers. I want to hear every instrument on that song and I want to hear it like I'm standing in the front row. Life is too short for anything less.
I favor Performance over Price. That means my modded KZ will outperform your overpriced $400 IEM.
