So If I am looking for a IEM with mic with good isolation
Which one would be the best under $150 range?
Been looking at the a161p, but the Phonak PFE 012 also looks great..
I listen to a wide range of music and like something that is a little bass strong.
Been using the nuforce ne6 for couple years, which I enjoyed. Recently, the right side died on me.
The NE-6 is more than a little bass strong. If you want that quantity of bass you'd probably be better off with a Shure SE215+mic cable. Much more user-friendly and better-isolating than the MH1C, though perhaps not an upgrade in sound quality. If you do want to try something a lot more accurate, the A161P would be good but it only has a few db of bass boost over something like an Ety ER4.
Not as bad, and they've been known to go on sale (unlike beats).
Yamaha EPH-100 is great if you have average-size (or larger) ear canals. Good isolation and the sound works well for modern music (e.g. EDM).
Discontinued but still available with the likes of amazon and earphonesolutions. I guess what I'm after is a westone 2 with a little more thump in it (but not too much) if that makes sense. The ue900 seems to be polarizing opinion and I've never liked swivel connecters after the se215's.
Yeah, in that case you're better off with the W4.
Hmm... most high-end BA monitors are worn cable-up. There's not much that's cable down. The HiFiMan RE262 comes to mind - it has been discontinued but you may still be able to find one used or even NOS.
