Hello,

My requirements are:
- wired 3,5 mm
- microphone support
- sound quality with flat EQ
- similar build outside of driver like B&W C5 (should I worry it?)
- price ~200 EUR

My past experiences:
- Denon AHC-400 (great sound quality but was corrupted)
- Bowers and Wilkins C5 (when switched from Denon I was unhappy due of much bass sound)

What I was done in past:
I repaired C5 twice, one time was corrupted in cable due of bad quality, then second time I was replaced with 32 OHM driver that costs only 5 EUR, and replaced in C5. Sound is some with original. Only houses and cases of C5 doing job to make sound quality. You can believe me or not, but many people tested and can't find difference.
So, it was housing and case of C5 quality (metallic). I replaced and enjoyed next 7 years. Now I don't want repair I want to buy new one.

What in-ear wired with microphone can I go into?

These are excellent....

I found that even triple driver is much cleaner and better than quad, in a reviews on Reddit.

What about statement below is it true?

Cons: -slightly raspy timbre
-lack of sub bass extension and thickness
-average soundstage
-treble lack sparkle decay
-violin sound off
-musicality isn’t always there (subjective, and mostly based to vocal emotivity perception)

To what does this refer?
Whatever it refers to it is simply one person's opinion I assume.

I've got some Dunu EST112, reasonably flat but perhaps a little bright at extreme treble, but smooth. They're some way out of the budget you set though., but they sound fabulous.
