Best In-Ear Monitors under $350

post #1 of 31
Thread Starter 

I want to purchase In-Ear monitors but I am stuck on what to choose. My budget is under $350.00 and I listen to mostly Techno, Hip Hop, Rap, R&B etc. I love bass.


I also perfer to get iPhone controls on the wire if possible.

Here is what I am looking at:

Monster Turbine Pro Copper or Gold

Klipsch Image X10i

Klipsch Image S4i

Senheiser IE8

 

Which one is the best? Any others that I should look at?

If you love bass -> only and only Westone 3 !

Ive had Senn IE8 and MTP and they were great but only in bass, but rest was awful for me. Westone 3 are way more better with mids and highs than those and got great bass, especially in techno, rap and rock.

The IE8, definitely.

 

I listen to mine at min. bass setting, but if you crave more, you can turn the knob all the way up! 

 

My iPod video also drives them just fine...I do not find a need for an amp when I'm on the go.

My vote is the Monster Copper or the JVC FX700 (more of a vote for the latter).

I have never understood why one wouldn't want the lower frequencies that having the bass port unblocked (knob turned up) allows. This does not affect the IE8's problem area which is in the upper bass (IMHO).
I would sugest that investigating the line out rather than HO of your iPod may be worthwhile...

I think the best in that range would have to be the FX700. Having the Turbine Coppers, they aren't worth a whole lot more than $200.

The JVC-Victor FX-700 is hard to find.

 

I want something that is easy to find here in Canada.

Also, I like the Comply tips and don't know which ones will fit or if they will fit at all.

You can get Complys that fit almost any IEM. They make several different sizes.
