Hey guys, I'm new at head-fi and only recently started reading up about earphones. I am using a HTC Legend (pretty good for a phone IMO) or iPod Nano as my source, and had a Creative EP-630 for 2 years till it broke a few days ago. I've decided to get something decent for a replacement, budget max $100USD. I listen to rock and heavy metal mostly, with the occasional pop songs..
I tested out the Beyerdynamics DTX100, Soundmagic PL50, Brainwavz M1, M2 and ECCI PR300 today.. Out of those, the one that I preferred most is the PL50. Second is the DTX100, but to be honest it will be too bassy for the music I listen to.
Is there any other models that I should be looking at? The PL50 and ECCI PR401(haven’t tested yet) price is the same here where I live, but the PL50 looks more durable to me.
Any help will be appreciated guys J
