Need to buy an IEM which will be used with my phone (Note 2). I have looked at these two, Klipsch S4 (afaik there are two versions, one for iPhone and another for Android), and Bose IE2. Which one would be better? I would like crystal clear sound, with solid, deep and punching bass (not that distorted type of bass which leaves a long trail). And this is not a huge requirement, but still I would like to have an mic so that I can use it for calls too.
My budget is around 3.5-4.5k. Could be increased in case of a much better product if needed. And also please suggest those which I will be able to find on online sites or maybe local stores. I won't be buying international, not in this case.
I use Sony XB 300 for my desktop, so you see what type of bass I am looking for if not better ;)

Thanks in advance.

Saurav.

PS: I would like to stick with brands like Sony, Bose, Klipsch, Sennheiser, JBL, Altec Lansing etc, nothing else please, no skull stuffs or Razor!

Try and see if you can find kilpsch x10 . Should be ~4.5k

If you can increase your budget then go for Hifiman RE-400 eyes closed. (I have ordered one myself for my brother)

Else get Brainwavz M2 from Mp4nation or proaudiohome.

Stay away from Sony, vsonic .

Thanks. X10? Afaik it's 10k! No way its 4.5k.
And I won't comment on VSonic or Brainwavz and some, but Sony? No sir, I used three Sony in ear so far, and for the price they were great. And for my PC I use XB300, which is also great.

Anyway, I have ordered a MH1C (yes, another Sony) after recommendations form Head-fi, it's one of the best sub 100$ in-ear according to them. Saved some money.

Now I need a good PMP? Budget 5k. I see that Sansa Clip is good? Is that right? Or else?

i had also ordered the MH1C from ebay after suggestions from head fi. They were the most uncomfortable headphones i ever used. I am currently using Sony XB30EX and are by far the best in the 2k range

Damn, receiving mine tomorrow. Do you find it uncomfortable for the J cord or that thick cable? Do you have a good fit in ear? Or do they fall off? How is sound quality?

the built quality is good, however atleast i didnt find the eartips comfortable, they kept falling from my left ear and i got frustrated and got the Sony XB30EX, which are amazing. i regret i wasted 1200 bucks. The sound quality is great but what good is it if it dont fit the ears. let me know your review though
