Best sub 40$ earbuds? Doesn't need to be very bassy.

I'd recommend VSD3S for $45.  They pretty much beat everything under $40 I've heard. If it has to be under $40, maybe VSD1S (my preference), Xiaomi Pistons, LG quadbeat (not much bass but very nice clarity for the price) from stuff I've listened to personally. There's a lot of nice stuff under $40. Depends what kind of sound you like.

Compared them the other day in the comments here: http://theheadphonelist.com/headphone_review/xiaomi-piston-2/#comment-11553 \
 

If you're okay with the extra bass (and extra bass bloat) of the Pistons and/or just prefer warmer and more full-bodied sound, the Xiaomi set wins out. Otherwise, the SHE3580 is the better option. SQ difference between them isn't very big.

Lots of good options depending on what exactly you're after. LG QuadBeat recommended above is very nice for about $30. Punchy but not bass-heavy. Philips SHE3580 is pretty good with more bass, but not an overwhelming amount. The newer Philips TX1 fits the bill as well, especially if you like earphones that insert more shallowly into the ear.

I recommended him those Xiaomi's, the gold colored ones. Thanks for the info, I'll let him know of those options too.

Are you planning to review the new Pioneer DJE-2000/DJE-1500 series any time soon?http://swingdjresources.com/pioneer-dje-2000-dje-1500/

The DJE-1500 seems to be a better value.

The design looks nice but I haven't been very impressed with any Pioneer headphones in the past, so I haven't looked into testing these.

Joker, what SQ rating would you give VSD1/VSD1S?

Same as Fidue A63/SS Flux, 8.2. While I personally prefer the signature of the VSD1S to these others, I can never decide which is better when A:Bing them (which I've done extensively).  I do think the VSD1S is better than the VSonic VC02 and GR06, though, which puts it above an 8.1.

Speaking of SQ rating, what would you give the Dunu DN-2000 ?

Not entirely sure yet, but i do think it is better than the DN-1000, which puts it pretty high up there :wink:

Hello, how does the Onkyo IEMS compare with the Vsonic GR07 and TDK BA200 and which sweet do you prefer? Also what rating would you give it?

The Onkyo HF300 is pretty good for $100 but I wouldn't put it in the same league as a GR07 or BA200. It's more on the level of the RBH EP1 - generally good, especially for the consumer market, but with some sonic flaws. I found it quite mid-bassy and warm compared to the GR07/BA200; it ends up sounding a little bloated and veiled. The Bass Edition of the GR07 is closer in bass impact but still quicker/tighter/more resolving, and clearer overall. Other aspects are comparable but because of this I wouldn't quite call the HF300 a top-tier earphone. Also, except for the cable connectors the construction feels a little cheap, but it's far from the worst for the price.

Not quite yet, but it'll be up there in the 9.x range, around the Dunu DN-1000 and Westone W4/W40.

Which one is the best: Audio Technica IM50 or Yamaha EPH100 or Hifiman RE-400?

 

I have only listened to the IM50 and felt it was quite balanced,  but leaning to the bassy side. The bass really goes deep. I have no way of listening to the other two, so I wish to ask for some advice. I listen mostly to pop.

 

Is the EPH100 and RE-400 really worth $50 more than the IM50?
