Looking for sub-100€ IEMs: Alternative to Yuin PK3

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hello!

After considering to buy a pair of Yuin PK3 I made the decision that an open earbud is not the way to go for mobile/portable listening (for me).

I have some Shure E2C but sometimes I don't like them for certain genres. Well, maybe a Kramer mod would be sufficent but I'm a bit scared of it.
So I'm looking for a nice alternative that isn't to expensive.

Music "on the go": Rock, Funk, Metal, Pop, Trip-Hop, Rap
If the IEMS would offer nice isolation (and SQ) I wouldn't mind listening to some classical stuff either. So it's pretty much everything. But: I'm no basshead :-)
Bass: My preference is somewhere between PX100/Portapro and HD595. I don't know where to place the E2C in that aspect.

What about UE super.fi 3 studio? I'm wondering what "Who it's built for: Jazz, classical, podcasts" means?
They are 70 Euros which is OK. A bit less would be nice, too.

maybe try waiting for the Yuin OK3 - it's a hybrid earbud/canalphone, and supposed to offer a somewhat better SQ than the PK3. should cost around 80$.

The Super.fi 3 are going to leave you wanting. The bass and highs are definitely lacking. Try the Denon C551:
