i'm looking for an IE below $100. currently using Sony EX-90( i think) which compares poorly to my older EX-71. priority as such : comfort > durability > sound quality ( but at least ok). looking for more clarity than bass. used mainly on handphone ( but not iphone)

current shortlist for me is a-Jays three, but would like to see other models to compare with it. prefer angular jack but not that big of a deal
If you are looking at clarity than bass i think the Sunrise Sw-Xcape is a very good choice! Got good reviews recently. Would have recommnded you the RE0 as well but it is beyond your budget. Sw-Xcape has a local dealer and it is now being offered @ SGD 85 so should go hoot it! I think he has a thread somewhere in the mass order forum so should go check it out!

you may want to audition the earpiece first.
the a-jays three really hurt my ear when i tried it on. uncomfortable for me but maybe different for others.
and there are complains online as like mine which has one side of the earpiece having no sound at all after using it for sometime.

Here’s my advice, put that little plastic shovel down, and look into what makes a difference between a tactical and strategic airlift.

When up to speed on that one, see why Il-76 and C-17 are dual role (strategic/tactical), while larger craft like C-5/An-124/225 are dedicated strategic lifters.

Please come back and enlighten all of us, and then talk about how many missiles (LOL!) it will take to shoot down STRATEGIC airlifters!

Still in a dilemma over which IEM to buy.. PL50 is $80+ which is over my budget of $60+, while brainwavz m2's noise isolation is not that good. Any other suggestions peeps?

Went to Jaben last week and tried out several earphones.. Good service, can tell them what U want and they will show you the various models according to your needs.. End up I got Hippo Boom for $50.. Good noise isolation and as it name suggest, bass is good for me. I listen to pop and rock mostly..

Initially, I wanted to get a pair from Treoo. The online store put available when I bought it. They didn't even have stocks and didn't bother to inform me till I emailed them 3 days later. I replied them saying I will wait and again, no replys on the other side. I just went to Jaben. It was only like 1 week later, then they reply me saying the stocks have arrived but I have already bought my. IMO, service has dropped since the last time I bought from them a few months back.

Hmm..
either try

Treoo website for Fischer Audio's Omega V2 / Toughstuff / Marcus Bass / Equilibrium V1 or V2 series, Fischer Audio has aplenty for you price range.

Trying to go lazy will need you to go down in the malls for a Koss KE29 or JVC Marshmallows for budget, both which i think doesn't warrants reason for you to deny the Fischer Audio IEMs the chance

Hey, like mentioned, about 80+ budget. actually I'm willing to hit $100.

I was at Stereo@PS just now, looking for headphones though :x
and he offered me several,

Sennheiser HD 202/ HD 228/ PX 100

AKG 420

I'm looking for clarity more than base actually. got any recommendations ?
thanks !
