IEMs for ~$75 - Page 2

post #16 of 153

so you like "bass-enhanced" eh? Try the mainstream Klipsch Images s4's, they're really for that fun, lively sound. They're a very very good improvement over the iPod stock buds. And they might be available in your country too. Just read a couple of reviews here, they might tend to your needs.

First of all thank you for your responses. Secondly I would like to "answer" to kingpage. Kingpage I'm not going to get akgry with you or sth like that cuz this is not the purpose of my thread. My purpose is to hear your ideas cuz i'm a newbie and not to disagree with you as far as I do not have the appropriate knowledge. Also I understand that i have to be open minded and that i would not use words like "that" or "this" but in my last post I think that these words necessary. I found a product that i like (thinksound thunder) and which is by far expensive for my budget if i'll buy them from their website but i found really attractive prises on ebay, Although i do not live in America so I don't know if these dealers are pepople that you can be based on or trust them. Moreover, you might are right. I don't to look for pretty looking earphones but for earphones with significant sound quality. Also you stated that the price of an iem does not reflect it's whole capabilities, however noone suposed me to buy a pair of iems which is cheaper from the budget that i posed (this is the reason why i think that earphones under $50 are rubbish ^^) Finally i would like to add that i don't have a certain type of music that i like so I can't choose between the imes with enhanced bass and the ones with more analysis, Specifically i love rock, metal, alternative and for this type of music I read that IEMs with enhanced bass are not a good choise, Although from my personal experience I know that i like bass ( not too much but to a significant rate) I repeat i dont have a certain type of music that I like; rock is the main but not the only one. What do you suppose me?

 

Thanks

In want good sound you can either buy good plugs in a higher price range at a discount from an even higher range or keep trading up cheap stuff.

Yes my friend I know that everything is made in china but there are products that are only "build" in china. For example apple's headphones are made in china but the whole research, the design and the know-how is developped in California. Also I have to mention that the problem is not china but that china companies with ridiculously cheap products are not a miracle. They just neglect the build quality, comfort etc. in order to be more competitive, You correctly place Sound Quality above the Design, although I place sth else above the Sound Quality. I place HEALTH. I prefer having a low sound quality and be sure that the materials used for my product to be built are checked and that my product won't blow up. ( I know that I exaggerate but I want to make you nderstand what I mean)

 

Always friendly :).... Thanks

 

EDIT: Someone said me that I can buy the iems from the www.amazon.co.uk (from United Kingdom) and have them shipped to my country. Any ideas?

You will be surprised how much of Apple's products ain't actually designed nor built by the know-how in California. The whole hardware of the iPhone and iPad were developed in China and Taiwan, Apple just showed them the rough idea of what they want in meeting. Anyway, the actual situation is, many of the so called unknown Chinese IEM maker (well, perhaps not that unknown to Head-fiers) are supplier and OEM for Sony, BeyerDynamic, Grado, etc. The list goes on...

errrrr.. HE.. But yeah, I guess you're right. I'll probably be selling the ones I like least, because I obviously don't really have use for 5 different sets of IEMs. Or the money to start collecting.

Someone to suppose me which type of IEMs to choose (fan or analytical) 'cuz i hear to a lot of types of music... Also someone who tried the Klipsch Image S4. I have never heard about'em..

post #24 of 153

In theory a good set should translate any signal into vibrations without changing them.

The type of music should not matter at all to a great set of earphones. The type of music should not matter at all to a great set of earphones.  If it does matter what you are hearing, then something is wrong.

The word we look for in audiophile lingo is transparent like in,  “Hay I cannot hear my earphones because the music keeps getting in the way."  You hear the music, the monitors are transparent, not there.

well, analytical types really can be both amusing for some while utterly boring to others. Example is the Head-Direct RE0, for its price range they really are what they say bang-for-the-buck, but really, they appeal mostly to true-blue audiophiles, with all their crystal clear and detail-y sound, but majorly "boring" for the other lot of the crowd because they are notorious for their lack of bass which only liven up to their NEUTRAL sound sig, without any preservatives added to your music.

 

But for mainstream listeners who prefer listening to a whole variety of genres but never losing the groove-to-the-beat factor. I'd say go for the Klipsch Image s4's.They have that FUN sound sig, which can appeal to audiophiles and ordinary people alike. I own a pair and go from Kenny G to UnderOath. They have that characteristic that anyone who would listen to them would suddenly say "man, this is good'..Just the versatility factor i'm giving emphasis here, but as always. YMMV. Cheers. 

 

Just as i've remembered, the s4's actually doesn't suit Bibliophiles because they're so fun in a way that bibliophiles will not be able to focus in what they are reading. They're really that distracting. I promise. :)

Yep I believe you and I saw really interesting reviews and comments about these IEMs but you know they're expensive for my budget ('cuz I must have them shipped to europe)! Initially I was looking for IEMs for about $30. then $50 now $75. I think I can't exceed that price limit^^ (Maybe if I'll find an european dealer who ships it free but I am absolutely sure that I won't find that :p)

Any good sennheiser model?

post #29 of 153

oh, that's what actually the spirit of head-fi is..you're really bound to spend more than you'd ever think of. But then as always, Good Luck On Your Wallet Dude.

 

i have read several good reviews regarding the Thinksound Rain and that should be a very good buy for you, and for the nature too. And as for the Sennheiser models, the only one i found to be noteworthy is their CX95 which is renamed to CX550 Style II which should be priced lower anywhere now. I've tried them and I find Soundmagic's pl30 and pl50 to be even better.(YMMV). Try Fischer Audio Eterna, they're very highly rated here, even regarded as a Sonic Diamond (ClieOS's words) alongside Head- Direct RE0 if i remember correctly.

First of all I mentioned that I would like to buy the thinksound ts01(thunder) IEMs and not the rain :) Also, do you (and everyone else) think that the Seenheiser CX 550 Style II are better (in sound quality & in general) from the Brainwavz M2?

 

Thanks
