I am a newbie and have an interesting/great problem that you guys might be able to help me solve.
I have a fund of money as a job perk to spend on technology or lose. The twist is that I MUST spend the money by August 30th, or lose it.
I have just under $60 left to spend and want to buy a good pair of IEMs for commuting on the bus (NOISY) and for general listening. My wife will kill me if I spend more than that, but there has to be something in that price range that is worth it.
I was interested in the altec lansing uhp336 because I heard that it had a flat response, and have also heard that the ThinkSound Rains are pretty good but don't isolate very well. I listen to a wide range of music, but sound isolation is a priority. I am willing to switch out ear pads to the comply foam ones, etc...
Spend my money for me! What would you buy if you had to spend $60 today?
All advice is appreciated!
