So I just demo'ed the Shure SE210 five minutes ago here at Singapore airport.
After listening, I now just went online to check them out (prices and reviews etc.)
It seems like most reviews here think they sound incredible or sound like utter garbage!!
I'm leaning more towards incredible, this is pretty much the sound signature I'm looking for except with some more bass, the only fallback I could hear in these was in the bass, it is rather aenemic, but the rest of the spectrum is really really good, I need an IEM that sounds like the Shure SE210 + bass.
Any tips? I'm investing in a new pair of IEM's this afternoon, it'll help to know what to look for rather than demo a whole shop, although my main focus is on the CK10 at the moment (haven't heard it yet).
p.s. I demo'ed the Audio-Technica quietpoint NC7b as well (I think that was the model nr.), I liked them quite a lot, never heard such good instrument seperation from my weak mp3 player.
The noise-cancelling is rather pointless though unless you listen at low volumes or turn the volume off and just want silence.
Everything else I demo'ed was useless, especially the cheap ATH stuff, I think Audio Technica are really bad in the low pricerange, everything under $100 I've heard made by ATH was terrible. Demo stalls FTW.
