HJE900s, MEElec M6s.
I haven't heard the HJEs but I've read that they're great for the price.
I own the M6s along with the SE535s. They're obviously not as good as the Shures, but they sound a LOT better than they're priced. So if you want to save yourself a lot of money, go get yourself a pair of M6s. Overstock is having a sale on them ($18 with $1 shipping). They're much more colored than the Shures too, which is I'm guessing good for you, as you're previous IEMs were the IE8s and UM3Xs.post #3 of 411/3/10 at 10:46amThread Starterpost #4 of 411/3/10 at 7:31pm
the phonak are very good, but if you liked the um3x, then you have to buy a better version of this (with the neutral filter and so on)
RE0 have very good highs and they are the cheapest.
I don´t know anything about the hje900.Return HomeBack to Forum: Portable Headphones, Earphones and In-Ear Monitors
