I'm fairly new to iems so i'm hoping you guys can help me with suggestions on what iems to get. I may be possibly be upgrading my pl30s to something a little bit more, nicer, possibly max around $90?, but i'd like to save money if i can. I have a few in my mind already, re0, xscape, superfi5, mc5, and pl50s, and whatever you guys can also recommend.
Now i mostly listen to hip-hop/rap (currently some lupe, kanye, a tribe called quest, and kid cudi to give you guys an idea), but sometimes also acoustic too. I haven't had much experiences with iems, only with my pl30s and 30 minutes with my friends superfi5s. The pl30s are great, but the superfis were just, i guess much clearer, brighter? its the best i can so far describe it.
After hearing that, i've noticed the pl30s sound quality is good, but just lacking compared to the superfi5. It feels like i'm missing out on some of the songs. I've tried adjusting to bring out more of the vocals and bass, with some effect but maybe a new iem will be better.
So what do you guys think? Pl50s are fairly cheap, and apparently great price/value ratio, but i'm willing to bump up the price and go for something a bit more expensive if its that much better.
Thanks for the help in advance!
