I've been wandering the forums and this is my first post. After tons of broken or simply unsatisfying budget IEMs, I have decided to buy some real good ones. I have saved money and since the time is right (don't ask) I wanted to order them as soon as possible. I listen to Alternative mainly. I wanted a really good soundstage and coz I am tired of increasing the volume to hear the details while the bass hurts my ears I want them to very balanced. I have gone through a huge list and these are my final contenders.
1. Klipsch Image S4 - I liked them at first but I keep hearing they get quite bass heavy plus they come with a huge metal case and I'd really appreciate a case I can keep in my pocket. (AU$ 130)
2. Shure SE115 - There are no problems with these except maybe they are a boring choice and a bit ugly.(AU$ 150)
3. Jays t-jays three - These are the ones I frankly like the best. They are really good looking too and come with a great range of accessories that make the price sound worth it to me. They are new so there aren't many reviews around but what I'm hearing is good. (AU$140)
These are all in my price range and I've given it a lot of time and thought so I'd like no new suggestions. This choice is making me crazy so please help!
