Judgement Time!!
Hey guys, My Klipsch in ear earphones finally gave away after 3 years. I am now looking for a new in ear earphones for a budget of 2000-2300. My priority over everything else has to be excellent music quality. Not a heavy bass fan. So no Sony earphones pls. Good mids & Highs.Could you please recommend some models?

I'm also interested in getting a new IEM at that range and the best option I've found is the new VSonic VSD3. It was available at lendmeurears.com for $50, its no longer in stock but new VSonic VSD3S is available. Only difference I know of is non detachable cable and price which is $68.

Edit: TPeos Popular is available at amazon.in for ~2000 which, suggested by some, are also good option.

The KZ ATE seems to be the rage nowadays.
as per reviews [i have not used it] it seems to have really good sound quality.

buy from AliExpress. It costs roughly 600INR.

Cons: Longer shipping time, Warranty Claim issues.

Thanks but won't custom be an issue. Heard repeated complaints of harassement while shipping from AliExpress.

If the product is less then $10 worth then you get custom clearance, otherwise you need to submit KYC documents. That is what I was told when buying from lendmeurears. KZ ATE is just under $10 so might not be any problem, otherwise keep checking mail/phone and tracking your package. Even a day late to submit documents would incur warehouse charges which is almost more than the product itself.

Let me know if you are purchasing, regarding the build and sound quality of KZ ATE.

Brainwavz Omega is another option I've been hearing about. But haven't used, though reviews are good.

if the individual item value is over $10, remember to ask the seller to declare the item price as below $10. you can send an order message while placing the order.
they willingly cooperate and you will have no issues.

Hmm i had heard a lot about KZ but seemed expensive. Chinese price seem ridiculously low. Still wondering if its worth all the hassles of shipping a earphone from Aliexpress. Are there any other options like Audio technica, v sonic etc.

I will try out Aliexpress site then since the amount is pretty reasonable anyways. Could you please ask your friend as to which seller he purchased it from? Since the only drawback now is the time it is going to take to deliver and needed a earphone soon, i will be ordering a cheaper earphones till this arrives.
Thanks for the info [MENTION=148045]anirbandd[/MENTION].
Also in the tracking link, it says unsucessful delivery attempt in Hinjawadi(Pune??) and then to mumbai airport. Is this having issues with customs or something else here?

its was showing that tracking info sicne the postman attempted delivery when there was no one at his home. he visited the post office and collected the IEMs today.
it took 12 days from order to arrival.

i also heard the IEM for a short while today. in a blind A/B test, it will be very tough to differentiate between the KZ ATE and a really good 3-4K IEM.
