Currently I use VicFirth Isolation Headphones for my ipod or monitor mix whenever I play. Unfortunately they change the sound a good bit and they restrict volume quite a bit to prevent you from destroying your ears. Also, I would much prefer something that isn't so bulky.
So I've been looking through the forums and trying to find people's suggestions for good IEMs for drummers. I've found quite a few options that I think would be good, but it's hard to make a choice. It's really hard to find comparisons of the different IEMs, especially in a way that caters to what I'm looking for. It seems that the best thing to do is make another thread asking an old question, what's your suggestion about what I should get?
As far as a budget goes, it's got to be under $200 and preferably closer to $100. Since I'm a drummer isolation is the first thing that I'm concerned about. My next priority is sound quality. I'm looking for the best and most professional quality sound that I can get for my money. Eventually I know I'll probably upgrade to custom molded IEMs, but for now I'm on a budget. Honestly everything else is important but nowhere near as important as isolation and sound quality. Fit is important, but I can always find an ear-piece that will fix and comfort issues.
I've found five different possible choices so far and I'm trying to narrow it down. If you have another suggestion that you think would be better than what I've picked, please let me know. These are just what I've been able to find so far that might do what I want at a price I like.
Thanks ahead of time for your help =)
