However, seeing as how head-fi has such a diverse community of audiophiles, I'd like to ask: In your opinion, what company produces the best Custom Monitors for the buck?
I tend to listen to different styles of music: Rock, hip-hop, R&B, Rap, Metal, Orchestral; you name it, I'll at least try to listen to it. The issue I have is that I like listen to the extremes, i.e. when I listen to Rap I like the Bass to be bumpin' and for Rock the guitar's to sound like I'm right next to them.
Money wise, I'm not saying I don't have a budget, but I know the UE18's and its contemporaries are out of the question (meaning please keep recommendations sub 1000.00 US)
I've looked into the ES3/X for Westone and the UE 7&10 for Ultimate Ears, but they are about the only two brands I know with Customs, so I'd like to get different opinion.
Thanks for the help!
