Default Good 'beater' IEMs for RB Clip+: Klipsch S2 or S4??

I dont really believe in 'burn-in' of earphones, but now i'm kinda thinkin that some actually 'burn-out' .. I've been using the denon ah-c551 for about a year now and I've used them everyday during that period and they have been great up until last week when they started sounding less 'fun' than they did before.. i don't use them while working out, there's been no physical damage to them, they keep sitting in a case when i'm not using them and basically i've been very careful while handling them.. with a good RB eq, the C551s sounded warm with a miniscule amount of sibilance on some songs but no complaints they just sound muddy and kinda shrill .. anyhoo, i'm just looking for a replacement 'beater' IEM and i kinda narrowed it down to either the S2 or the S4, both of which i've listened to, but not over an extended period of time..anyone had any in-depth experience with either?? also if someone can very quickly interpret this graph, i'd be much obliged :
