I love bass. I listen to a lot of electro and hip hop. My car rocks a 10" JL Audio sub powered by a JL Audio 500w mono amp. I like the "boom" longevity of a hard 808 bass drum in a hip hop song and tight/thumping bass in a electro/house song. My enjoyment of bass isn't to say that I don't place importance on mid's and high's, but rather, my next purchase absolutely has to fill that bass void.
I'm no stranger to IEMs. My first shot at a good IEM were the UE Super.Fi 5EB, which I was sold on primarily for it's bass capabilities. IMO, it didn't disappoint. When I got the fit right, it produced the kind of bass I like: heavy, clear, smooth, and without knocking out all the other ranges entirely.
I then went to Shure SE530s after some initial reviews I found on the web (not this web site). It did a much better job at the mid's and high's, but it lacked the bass that I'm looking for. Unfortunately, I misplaced these during a snowboarding trip and now I'm in the hunt for a replacement.
What I'm working with:
I have a 60GB 5.5G iPod and a 160GB iPod Classic. And an iPhone. I commute daily via train to work, so noise isolation is important.
I've set a budget of no more than $300, but I'd like to stay around the $250 and under range if possible.
I've already done my own scouting, but I want to leave that bit of information out to keep this as unbiased as possible. I'm open to suggestions and discussions. Thanks to everyone in advance!
