If you found the EPH piercing, the only IEM I could recommend is the ASG-1.2. You can maybe find them on the FS forum for <$200/210. Worth every penny.

i do like treble a lot. my cans are k701 and srh940, which offer a lot of treble. but they are not piercing the way the yamaha did.

The treble quality of the ASG is great, but the quantity is probably nowhere near the quantity of your k701. Below is what I think is my most accurate description of them.

I've been on an EQ fast for the last 24 hrs and, after months, I've just wrapped my head around its signature. It's a really sultry sounding phone. It's not one for clarity, but the details are all there. As always the bass runs circles around everything else I've heard, but the kicker is the midrange. 

 

Most phones usually sound slightly detached with the clarity and lack of warmth in the sound. Not the ASG-1. By being bassy, mid-forward, and warm, the sound really hugs and envelops you. If you close your eyes, you're instantly transported into the music. Through all of that warmth it still has excellent separation of both instruments and vocals, and a massive soundstage that all lend to truly a euphoric sound. 

 

It's not aggressive at all due to the toned down treble, but it still finds a way to work for harder genres through it's good driver speed, and great percussion and guitar timbre.

 

I think it's one of those thing you have to sit down and appreciate, sort of like those exotic cheeses.

does the beyerdynamic have good bass

What's the best IEM for my budget, which is AUD $50? (Willing to pay ~$5 more if it makes a BIG difference)
I don't know anything about highs,mids,lows, treble, bass, v-shaped, "fun" sounding, or any of these audiophile terms.

I listen to pretty much every genre, if that helps.

The detachable cables lies at the Y-Splitter, and comes with 3 cables. Balanced, Normal, Normal channels swapped.

If you're serious about wanting to try a brighter signature with less bass, perhaps the Sony MDR-EX1000 would be the way to go. It'll have a large presentation like the IE8 but with a brighter, less warm signature and more accurate bass response. Of course you could try something neutral-to-bright and still very very good on a smaller budget - the RE272, for example, or Brainwavz B2 / Fischer DBA-02 mkII

Thanks for the replies guys, I am 80% decided to get the RE272. However, as these no longer have the 3 years warranty, I would like to know more on the durability of these pairs. 

Perhaps they lifted the 3 years warranty because there's too much claims from consumers? Just a thought of mine...

post #7570 of 16802

go from 80% to 100% you won't be disappointed

re-272 is a terrific iem , i have it since last september and i am in love with this little baby

 

it has terrific highs without being edgy/sibilant and the rest of the spectrum is fine aka neutral

 

i also have the eq5 but it don't get much listening time , poor old eq5

Got it. Thanks guys for the info. Anyway. any thoughts on how the RE262 will response with the E7/E9 combo. Need something which isolate better at home while my family is around with their daily activities. I normally use my HD650 when they retire to bed and the M50 doesn't really isolate enough. Thanks in advance.

I have a question, which dual flange tips do you guys recommend, or are they all pretty much the same? I think I really like dual flanges best, they seem to give me the best fit. I've so far found the Meelec Balanced Sound tips, the shorter bi-flanged tips/normal bi-flanges in the M11+ tip kit, JLabs JBuds Pro Tips, and a few others. The shorter tips like those from the Meelec M11+ and Sennheiser seem like they would be less effective. The JLabs look really nice. Do the "Balanced Sound" tips from Meelec really do anything in the way of taming bass and accentuating mids?

 

Thanks!

In Joker's review of the Monster Turbines, he said they would be a great pair of phones at the $100 mark. They can currently be had at $79 at Amazon. For someone who listens to Dubstep, Rock, Metal, Alternative mostly. Would the Monster Turbines be a good choice in the ~$75 range?

 

Would there be a better pair of iems in this range?

You can look at Joker's Build Quality Rating for the RE272.

From the looks of it, it's not badly built at all.

IMO the E9 will actually be overkill.

I don't know about the RE262, but sometimes I can't even use my Fiio E11 with my very sensitive IEM's.

Even at the lowest volumes they're still too loud, and when I go even lower, the dreaded channel imbalance prevents me from hearing my music.

Ok, thanks xinn3r for chipping in. Appreciate it.
