Hello guys,
 
My Ultimate Ears 600 just broke (I pulled it too hard and the cable snapped from the earphones), and I need a replacement IEM as soon as possible. I'm looking for a IEM that has a sound signature similar to Ultimate Ears', with detailed and balanced sound with a little bass emphasis. The sound must be non-fatiguing so that I can wear it for a long period of time. Preferably uses balanced armature rather than dynamic drivers. The price range I'm looking for is around $100, but I may consider a costlier one if it is worth it.
 
I have also previously used the Klipsch S4.
 
So, any IEMs that fits these criterias?
 
Thanks in advance.

A soldering iron will be cheaper than new earphones. You have nothing to lose by trying to fix them.

Thanks for your suggestion, but I cracked open the housing and found that the wires are detached from the drivers itself, so I think it is impossible or very hard to fix it. Plus, I have been using these for very long, so its time for me to get a new and exciting earphone. :)
