    My Klipsh s4 earbuds broke last week after only 3 months. I really liked them for noise isolation and sound quality, but 3 months is totally unacceptable, especially as I looked after them well

    So now I'm on the hunt for some durable, great sounding earbuds.

    To be honest I'm completely baffled by all the reviews as every single one of the promising options on my list have reviews from people saying they broke within a couple of months.

    Budget is in the region of £40 - £65

    Here's a few I've got my eye on:

    Pioneer SE-NC31C
    Philips SHE9850
    Ultimate Ears 600
    Beyerdynamic DTX101

    So are there any good earbuds that isolate sound well that won't break easily?

    What are you listening to? What did you like about the sound of the Klipsch S4?

    Well worth looking at these -

    SoundMAGIC E10 In-Ear Sound Isolating Earphones Black & Red

    I have no experience of the UE600 but the other three are pretty good for the price. Beyerdynamic DTX101 are the best of the group or the E10 above for a contemporary clear clean sound with bags of bass but not too much.:)
