Most detailed IEM for 200$ - 250$ ... - Page 2

post #16 of 26

I am not sure about the European stores. However, I have seen them going for as low as 129 US dollars on EBay. You may want to start with EBay sources to see what pricing they offer.

No fakes around? 129 seems a great price.

But, RE252 and ER4B.. who would be the most analytical one? for the "fun listening" i've arleady the ms1i, i just need to hear all the micro-details hidden in each song...

Er4S is probably your best bet. These are truly awesome.

I'm a bit confused right now xD

I forgot, but maybe is implied due the question, i listen to all kind of genres.

I think any of these choices will be good. ER4(P,B,S), CK10, RE252 are all analytical phones based on many reviews and my ownership of the CK10. I've only owned the CK10 btw.

 

These phones are all analytical and should suit what you are looking for. It's not like with one phone you will get massive details and then another phone there will be none. All of them should be very good phones and give you plenty of detail. You might want to look at how you are going to use it. Will you be amping it? Do you want a non microphonic cable? Also do you want it in your face or laid back? Also of course price is an important factor as well.

Right now i'm not going to amp them, for the microphonic thing cable... it's not a big problem, i'm wont with a pair of RE2, for the price.. as i said in the title 200$ (max 250, but lesser is better).

 


if they're pretty similiar i think that RE252 will be my choice

$200 gives you RE252 and any of the ER4's. I would do one thing first. Look at the FS for the RE252 since once in a while good deals on them show up. They typically go for low to mid $100 so that would save you a bit. That would be of course if you don't mind buying used.

The CK10 can be found new for about $190.  You may be able to grab one used for a little cheaper.  The RE252 is $200 new, but can be found for as low as $140 used.

 

The ER4S is a nice earphone, but it suffers on both the top end and bottom end because it's a single BA design.  The top end frequency response is a little ragged and does roll off.  This is largely unavoidable without running a driver specifically geared for high frequencies, and then your bass will suck.  A lot of these single BA earphones are geared somewhere in the middle and suffer a little on both ends.  The ER4S is a great earphone, but it does suffer from this.

id chime in and say phiaton ps 200 if you can get it for 180 or less brand new

they have the most crystal clear and lush mids ive ever heard in a iem

the bass is fast but doesnt hit too hard
