Default List of J-style IEMs

Is there a list somewhere comparing different j-style IEMs? I'm not going back to the y-cords again. I'm using a Sony ex-51 for more than 3 years and in need of an upgrade.

Wow, you actually like those J-style cables? You're the first one I heard of...

The Sennheiser CX300 are J-style, and they're definitely a huge upgrade over the EX51. Other than that, I only know that none of the really good (or really expensive) IEMs are J-style, they're all Y-style.

With the fakes, do you think this is safe enough? He even compares the two and has perfect ratings.

For me, that would seem trustworthy enough - him comparing the real ones with the fakes.

JVC HA-FX55 are also J-style. They're very good for the price, slightly cheaper than the CX300's. They isolate quite good and have a lot of bass. Clarity is also pretty good (but I'm no audiophile so...).

Use my Y-style mod to get rid of the terrible J-style cable.
