Previous happy VSonic owner, infinitely happy Brainwavz M3 owner...However.
I have a habit of wearing my canals around my neck when I'm not using them, and last Friday, unbeknownst to me they slipped off my neck & onto the ground whilst having a coffee & when I got up to leave, I trod on the left earpiece. The housing was cracked & detached from the earpiece itself (the bit with the speaker/that goes in your ear), no wires were damaged/broken. So I had a crack with the superglue & managed to get things back in one piece.
Unfortunately tho, they just don't sound the same anymore. Volume/tone has definitely changed in the left earpiece, and I'm going to go insane if I have to use these CX300's I keep for emergencies any longer than a week or two.
Given I've enjoyed the VSonics for their not muddy bass, and given I absolutely enjoyed the detail of the M3's (the less upfront bass wasn't an issue at all, on the contrary, being able to hear each bass note more clearly than I've ever heard in a canalphone was brilliant), what would people suggest I consider to replace my busted M3's ?
I'm happy to go up a notch or two price-wise (say to $190 or so of the B2's - anything up to/under this level is fine). Apologies for the saga & TIA for any/all suggestions/advice
