Need new iems for under $30

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 

Well, i'm an idiot. Over the course of just half a year, i managed to lose 3 different pairs of earphones. One was the beloved MDREX75, which were just fantastic, but the cable stopped working anyways. Then i got the senn 500cx, which i am now worried to buy because of fakes, besides i thought that they didn't sound that great anyways. They were overly warm without being bassy or too clear. Then just a week ago i bought the MDR-ex57, which are SUPER clear and balanced, but i lost them a couple of days ago. Any suggestions for headphones that do justice more to treble and mids than bass? I listen to metal, a lot of rock, jazz, classical and electronica.

There's very few earphones at that price range that do not focus on bass. One is the Sound Magic PL30 which I really enjoyed when I had them and they do offer more of a balanced sound than a bass heavy one such as the one from a MDREX71 or CX500. They go for around $20 on focalprice.com but take around 2 weeks to arrive since it is shipping from Hong Kong or China.

Brainwavz M1 while they're still on sale at mp4nation. Shockingly good value for money.

How is pl30 and M1 compared? The pl30 lack of bass is on M1 also? Is pl30 better from the M1 in any point?

The PL30 has a wider/airier soundstage than the M1 (and pretty much anything else in its price bracket). Everything else I feel the M1 does better.

The EP630 is muddy and composed 90% of bass. The Titans are harsh and very metallic-sounding. The FMJ are better (less metallic, less bassy) but still garbage.

Ive heard the M1 and thought it was amazing value for money.
