How you found us: The voices in my head told me to come here
My ER6i buds, died over a year ago. Quickly followed by a set of Koss that didn't even make it a year. (I loved the cloth cords on those buds. OK sound)
I recently picked up a set of Klipsch S4 buds. The cord look cheap and is prone to tangling, but I am very impressed with the quality of the sound. Very clear and crisp highs, good midrange and a strong, but not boomy base. The fit for me is great too. Once in they don't shift or hurt. They come with three different adaptors to fit different ears. They do an excellent job of noise isolation for me, probably because of the fit. They retail for under $100 and you can pick them up on ebay for under $60 all day long. They also have I-phone S4i and Android S4a versions for basically the same price.
IMO, these buds will easily run with buds twice their price. I just thought I'd post up with a low cost alternative.
There is nothing firm, nothing balanced, nothing durable in all the universe. Nothing remains in its original state, each day, each hour, each moment, there is change. Change is the essence of life. Embrace change as you do life. To fight change is to live in the past.
