... And I am torn between the Shure E2c and the Etymonic ER-6i. I have tried my dad's ER-6i's and really liked them, but am nervous about the fit in my ear and build quality (I hear they are not particularly durable [thin cord, etc.]). I get the impression that the Shures are a little tougher, but I have tried a pair of Shure studio monitors and found them to be lacking when it came to sound quality (not sure if I put them in right though... ). Also, I seem to have very small ear canals and have had lots of trouble with 'buds that use the dome style rubber á la Shure. At the same time, I am not sure how well the ER-6i will fit either... To add to the mix, I recently discovered the Bose earbuds and am wondering about those. So confused... help?
