Hi everyone,
 
Just recently I realized that the left earbud went out on my 5 year old E3g's (audio is very low volume compared to right).  I cleaned it out and there was no improvement.  After looking at Shure's website I realized that it would cost me $80 to have these repaired, plus shipping and handling (originally paid ~$130 for them).
 
I hope I can get some advice on whether to bite the bullet and fix them or purchase a different pair of IEMs for around $80-100.  I looked at the Klipsch S4i and S5i and they seem like they would do the trick (I am no audiophile but I do appreciate good bass and clear audio).  What are your opinions?
 
Thanks in advance!

Hmm, E3g is long discontinued and Shure doesn't physically repair earphones. Since they're broken, you might want to call Shure customer service and see if you can do the upgrade/replacement thing. Might get you into a SE425 or SE535 at a decent price.
