post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 
I was just wondering what would be the best all around iem for any type of music. Got my eyes on Bose IE, Monster Turbine, Rockford Fosgate punch plugs, Klipsch s4, and Hippo VB. Hoping to hear from ya'll soon!

If you can extend that to $200 the Westone 2 is a good all round IEM.

I would say look at the HJE900. They sound good with every single genre I can throw at them, and I listen to just about everything(dance, pop, latin, rock, death metal, classical, soundtracks, rap, r&b, big band, jazz, opera, dnb). They might be a bit harsh at the top at first, but not moreso than the S4 or VBs, from what I've read. They have a slight midbasss hump, but they are not lacking in any part of the sound spectrum. These also have the best overall build quality of any IEM you mentioned, because of the removable cables and cubic zirconium housings.

That list is all over the place performance-wise with only unifying factor being bass... lots of bass. I've only heard three of those (Turbines, Bose IE, and Klipsch S4) and I think the Panasonic HJE900 is a better all-rounder than all of them if you're also looking for lots of bass.

Edit: too slow but +1 on all of the above

Hmm, where did you get $200 from? Where are you located? As others have mentioned, they are available for 109 at J&R.

Panasonic RP-HJE900 Zirconia In-Ear Headphones in Corded Headphones at JR.com

Just a note: The cables look different(and better) in the version they're selling now.

Don't get the bose. Some how they are stupid hard to drive. Even If you get a good seal I have had no pmp that could drive them loud enough for me. I think they are like 46 ohms or something stupid like that.

If you cant get a good price for HJE900 in Pilipinas, I can vouch for (burned-in and foam-modded) VBs as very good all-rounders, especially since you can adjust the bass response with their interchangeable plates.

JVC FX500, Sony MDR-EX500, REO and D-Jays......

They dont sound quite that bad either but I think they still lack bass. You know that bass-in-yo-face type.
