Hello everyone, I just wanted to start off by saying thanks for having a great and informative forum. I have been searching this forum for a while and can't seem to find any good ideas. 2 weeks ago my iem's started to die after 4 years of continue use (I'd say about 15000 hrs) I work at a desk 60 hours a week with my trusty 80gb iPod classic to keep me company. I listen to a lot of heavy bass electronic, rock, metal, speedcore, classic rock, big band, swing, jazz, hiphop, dubstep, and tons in between. I started with the basic iPod headphones, worked up to skull candy and after 2 or 3 pairs of the skull candy I went up to these JVC's. I loved them; sure I had to play with the eq all the time to get them to sound juust right but they were good quality and have done me well. So my question is, I have my trusty 80gb iPod classic and need new iem's to keep my sanity at work. I would consider an amp someday but not within the next 6 months and not without more research. I'm also debating retiring my iPod and using my phone as my music player (lg g4 with expandable memory) but again not for a while. My wife said I can spend $100 Canadian or less (I might be able to swing 50 more but that's between us) so let me know if you have any ideas or have used these and upgraded. Thanks!
