Fix my Shure E3g earbuds or get a different/new pair?

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

 

Just recently I realized that the left earbud went out on my 5 year old Shure E3g IEMs (audio is very low volume compared to right earbud). 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!

Do you need IEMs with a microphone built in or just IEMs? Because if no mic, then just pick up the Klipsch S4 and save ~20 bucks. Or for right at the $100 budget, the Sennheiser IE6.

No I don't need the mic but I found a pair of S4is for $79 online so I figured I might as well throw those into the mix too. I'm thinking about going for the Sennheiser IE6s but I am still wondering if my E3g pair would produce better sound or not. I know the IE6 is a newer model and retails for around $250 while the E3g retails around $200, but I couldn't find a direct comparison online anywhere.
