What are the best In-Ear headphones for a Hip Hop Enthusiast? - Page 2

post #16 of 24


Experience, of course.  I wouldn't make a claim like that without trying a prodect first.  I guess they just weren't my thing.

Is this coming from experience or just brand perception?

When I tried them, I asked the seller to lend me his own pair. That's because I knew that they were coil drivers...Need burn in. Read a lot of forums about how long their burn-in time was. So I knew it wouldn't have been a good idea to try a new pair straight out of the box for sampling. 

 

Anyway, I do agree that the IE8s aren't for everyone. But then I'd like to see a pair of headphones that are. At this price point, a majority will like, but there will be some who don't. I guess rakfunk12 count in the minority.

I think Monster Turbine Pro is suitable for one choice.

I did consider the Turbines for a while. But not seriously. I don't know. Generally people agree that the IE8s are a banging pair of earphones and that they're better than the Turbines. The Turbines do come with a great warranty though.

UE Super.fi 5 EB

I felt the same about the 300s. But then I went to the CX400-IIs. Much more clarity and balance. Not sure if the 500s would be even moreso as I have not tried. For hip hop, I use the UE Super.fi 5 EBs.

triple fi. (less bass then 5eb for example, but it has the best deep bass!)

Not sure about that.  I think it breaks both ways.  You will find a lot of former IE8 users who went to Monsters.

 

To me the Golds and MDs w/ Supertips are awesome for Rap and Hip-Hop.  Deep, powerful bass and smooth enough to make any poorly mastered album enjoyable.
