Multi-IEM Review - 352 IEMs compared (Pump Audio Earphones added 04/03/16 p. 1106) - Page 331

Nah, the TF10's just sold for $95 on amazon.com, so you will not be able to resell them at a reasonable price if you buy them for $193 and get a bad fit or don't like the mids etc.

 

GR07's are a bit boring like the Hifiman RE252's.

 

2 cents.

Well I'm buying from UK... ebay, and cheapest TF10's are £125 (193$) ???

 

Any other ideas?

You said ambient, chill and hip-hop... maybe the Shure SE215?

 

25% off today over at earphonesolutions.com with code "black" or "black7".

 

If you can stretch it, perhaps UM3X from them with 25% off? Pretty good deal I think...

If you want to jump further into the deep end I'd go with one of the safer sound signatures - the Fischer Audio Tandem, for example, or maybe a Spider Realvoice or HiSound Crystal. If you're paying $75 or less for a Turbine they are a good choice as well. The IE7 is normally out of your budget and even then I like the Tandem better for that type of sound. 



 

Hmm, I might consider that route. Any idea if any of those headphones would benefit from having a small amp, like a fiio ,to drive it?

Well Mainly  Electronica, Hip-Hop, Dub Reggae, Acoustic, Rock, Blues, Jazz, Funk...  Seriously everything.

I do like Bass and I think if I had weak bass I would be disappointed, but really not a bass head... doesn't have to be overbearing.

I guess a richer, more colourful sound would be better.. but then... I'm not sure until I hear it?

 

I swear to god, this has been a nightmare.. LOL

 

I have my mind set on 2-3 sets to choose from and then start researching more and find more I like.

 

I'm after a balanced, good reproduction and a nice, warm-ish sound... and if I had to choose I would lean more towards bass, but doesn't have to be too much.

 

*sigh*

Get the UM3X with 25% off, if the rare possibility arises you don't like it you'll be able to sell it later with little loss.

That's quite a purchase, £250 ($370)...!!

 

I'm happy to spend £100-ish ($150-200) but dunno man, that's a big leap.

$370? They are $284 after the "black" code.

 

I'd vote for Shure SE425 too, reduced to $224 with free international shipping with airmail.

 

 

If you want a warm and sweet sound you could also get the Audio Technica ANC23 and save a lot of money.

 

Those are my three rec's for you. :)

 

 

post #4959 of 16803

Ahh ok yes, the code, good shout, forgot to factor that in.

Well I'll do some more thinking and researching tomorrow, It's getting late.

 

Much appreciated.

 

Thanks very much for taking the time to help (and curses for giving me more choices tongue_smile.gif )

 

 

Cheers

post #4960 of 16803

Yeah but the code is gone tomorrow.

 

Get the UM3X and your audio journey was complete within 20 posts!

 

You're welcome, cya.

 Atrios MG7 or FXT90 more exciting vs. GR07?

post #4962 of 16803

Probably FXT90, haven't heard either sorry.

For me personally, FXT90 and ClarityOne are both more exciting/enjoyable than the comparatively flatter, more accurate GR07.

The FXT-90 is a practically perfect based on what you're looking for.

Early morning glance at my head-fi subscriptions summary and wth, joker's thread has 35 new posts, I'm almost thinking the man has had a heart attack or something, but then skimming through the posts thankfully all-clear, it's only kiteki who's found the thread. wink.gif
