not really, just give yourself some time. Maybe people can't recommend you. I am confused, you say you want IEMS in the tittle but you send us pictures of headphones. you do say it, but I don't really get it. 

and these are a lil above your budget. If you want cool looking phones, try stretching yourself to monster turbines (not coppers or golds, just turbines) I think they look great, have huge bass, which actually is pretty good, but compromise on mids and heights. 

 

My other recommendation would be Westone 1 for durability, their cable is superdurable ( i have the same on um2) and really soft+ the black look is really cool. 

Another thing that has come to my mind is Hippo VB, check those out as well. 

 

If headphones, check px200-II out, I really like the way they look and it's quite a bit better looking than the original. Another tip would be AKG k518DJ. They all have a different sound, so you better read up on them a little, I was just firing out what ocurred to me with durability/ quality and that price.

Probably the Monster Turbine Pro Gold if you can get it on eBay for under $150.

 

Or perhaps the HiFiMAN RE-ZERO? Judging from impressions and reviews, they seem to be pretty good.

post #9 of 128

the Re-ZERO can throw some off balance with the balanced jack, with is, if you are unamped, a pain to carry.

the pro gold are a really great choice of you can stretch, new are expensive, second hand would be fine but... I would be afraid of fakes in case of eBay.

Got RE0s (Not to be confused with RE-'Zero') - whilst I can't comment on sound comparatively, personally I think they look better than all other IEMs for its simplicity - albeit if Fang never meant it to look that great. Monster's aesthetics are just too gaudy, they produce stuff that says 'Mug me!' - also, while ranting, Dre's Beat's also look over-the-top, with its glossy plastic and shape.

 

*Plus RE0's are nearly half the price

but yea right now its a battle between the BEATS and the BEATS solo or the Turbines but there all so expensive can some one find a cheap one for me

post #12 of 128

Beware of fakes, my friend... Turbines and monsters are popular faked earphones. Turbines as in coppers or simply turbines?

it's really hard to say which are fake and which are not as the fakes are so well done. Amazon is supposed to be legit, ebay is 50/50. You would do best here on head-fi. here, I tried to search and found this:

Try to ask him wether he still has them.
