looking for IEM that gives best isolation and not fault-revealing

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hi everybody,
I am looking for a pair of IEM to use with my itouch. Now I know that UE Triple-fi Pro 10 is one of the current best but I've heard it is very source dependent so it could not fit my bill - because most of my mp3 are just 224vbr and I am not planning to go lossless. So what your guys suggestions?

Triple.fi's should still sound great with 224 vbr. They are made for portable use, after all.

Second vote for the TF's - they sound good with good MP3's, but also with FLAC files. This is of course for an universal IEM. For a custom IEM, which is also way cheaper than the TF's, I can recommend the SuperFreQs as you will get the TF sound but with more comfort due to the custom fit to "your" ears

Comfort, isolation, but not too revealing!

BTW: I have most of my music at between 192AAC and 320MP3 and it doesn't sound bad on Ety4's or SE530. As long as it is better than 128MP3, it probably wont sound really bad.

X2, UM2's are sweet. Can probably find them for cheap around here too.

Shouldn't be too much of a problem as long as the song has 192kbps or better with LAME. Anything less will have a lot of artifact, at least through my ears.
