Hi, first of all I want to start out by saying that I've been reading topics around here and read buyers guides, but they don't give me any concrete information.
So my budget is around 50€, so I'm definitely going for some low end IEMs as I'm only listening through my iphone at my gym, other than that I probably won't use them much and I have decent headphones at home.
I had the Sennheiser CX-300 IEMs a year ago which were around 50€ at that time and I feel it's a good price range.
The bass of those sennheisers were perfect for my taste, I hope that gives you an idea, I don't know if it's considered basshead or not but anyway.
Music I listen to is mostly rock and metal, and very often also instrumental songs, like Greg Howe or Eric Johnson. (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mKXewENvIfE This kind of stuff)
So I really appreciate clarity and sound quality, so I can really hear each instrument.
I'm uncertain if these kind of IEMs exist for 50€ but I'd like to get something decent.
I live in europe, so I might not be able to get my hands on some manufacturers, but give any suggestions.
Also, my main point that will decide my purchase is the sound, not design or anything else.
