I use Wizard edition Noble N4's for my general portable listening but am looking for something to use with my iphone when I don't have my X5 stack with me. Must have inline volume control & budget under £100 ($170USD). Obviously I don't expect the same performance as the N4's at this price, but want something close to their very balanced sound - & I hate aggressive treble!

Am considering the RHA ma750i and Philips Fidelio S2, but any other suggestions would be very welcome.

Agressive treble of the altones may not do it for him though

  ma-750 is good but wont call it much balanced i would like to suggest hf3 with 3 buttons & mic , may be ue900 if you can go over your limit .

I don't mind a mild bass lift if that's what the ma750i is all about - provided the treble is reasonably smooth.
I had a UE900 & didn't care much for it - seemed dark & a bit lifeless - though always wondered if it was a dud as it didn't seemed to match the performance it's many fans say it has. Had a Klipsch x10i too which was excellent sounding, but ridiculously flimsy.

Hadn't considered the hf3, so many thanks for the tip - will investigate.

I also want to get my first audiophile headphone preferably an armature one for under 200. Thank you in advance for your help.

Indeed. Some minor quirks here and there but can't fault that clarity.

Anything with a 1** model name is a regular PFE. The rest of the numbers just refer to colors and various types of inline remotes. For example the PFE 111 is the "basic" white PFE with no remote.

The MA750i might be too bassy coming from a Noble, and not clear enough in the midrange. Treble should be fine but it's just not something I recommend for balanced sound. The Etys recommended above are a better bet - the HF3 has the Apple volume control on it. The FIdelio S2 doesn't have a volume control - its remote is just a 1-button. Another option would be the UE600vi - less expensive than the Etys and it's got a nice and smooth sound and superb performance for what should be not much money (they're about $60 here in the US).

Just balanced armature (BA) rite? As there are dynamic combined with BA called double hybrids(1BA+1dynamic) and triple hybrids(2BA+1dynamic).....that way its easy to recommend and you get what you want,exactly.

Sure hybrids could work
