Hello, first post for me. I'm looking to buy Non-Insulating wireless earbuds for running and biking in city. I already have sennheiser pmx 685i, that I really like, the only problem is every 2-3 months I have to send them to repair to switch the cable. I'm a fan of sennheiser, I have sennheiser 598, sennheiser 380HD pro, and audio technica ath-m50x. here are my priorities: Wireless Non-Insulating Sound quality Behind the neck type (like the sennheiser pmx 685) Features such as heart beat monitor Price My budget is 250$ and under. 100$ is also a great option. I'm willing to buy in ear headphones if you're able to hear your surroundings while biking in city with them I dont like headphones with too much bass booster.
I go through a pair of cheap Sony earbuds (DR-EX12IP) every 1-3 months. I didn't want to get something nicer for fear of them breaking after a month as well, but I'd like to give it a shot. I'm looking at Shure SE-215s. My main priority is durability. I am probably not likely to put them in a case when not using them. I know it's bad. But I use headphones at least 5 hours throughout the day (sometimes more), so it's easier for me to just keep them coiled in my pocket. The next priority is comfort. My ears are pretty small, so that could be an issue. And I don't know that Shure IEMs are really meant for the general public. Is there a more comfortable option out there? My budget is kind of variable; basically I want to spend the least amount on the most durable pair. If that means going up to $300 I could do that, but only if I was absolutely convinced they wouldn't break for a few years. I'm more inclined to stay in the $100-200 range. Sound quality is important too, but I figure since I've been using cheap headphones I will be wowed by anything over $100 so I'd rather lean on durability over sound quality. If anyone wants to talk me out of the Shures please do! I don't really know what else is out there. Any suggestions would be great. Thanks!
