I lost my loves, the Etymotic ER6i. I need to find a new set. Here's what I'm looking for:
1. Sound quality is top priority. I'm not a major bass head, I'm most concerned about smooth mids and crystal clear highs.
2. Sound isolation. I use them mainly on my motorcycle, so they need to do a stellar job of blocking outside sound.
3. Price. Not looking to go over $100. Would rather stay in the $50 range unless they are exceptional. Will most likely not go over $100 no matter what.
4. I'd prefer something made in the USA, just to support domestic companies. I know that's a stretch. I refuse to buy Sony. Won't happen, don't bother suggesting.
So far I've read about some Klipsch, the newer Etymotic models, Ultimate Sounds... just not sure and not many places to see good models in person.
