I need some new In-Ear Monitors for producing music. I make Drum'n'Bass and Electro, so deep bass response is very important. I've been using the same Shure headphones for almost four years, and the build quality is excellent. I don't want to use speakers (only for the last finishing touch), because my neighbour complains about high volume when I make music. The IEMs need to be portable (no preamp) so I can also use them for listening to music.
To sum up:
- Sound should be as unbiased as possible, close to studio monitoring speakers
- Bass response should be good, down to 40Hz or something
- No preamp required
- Very good build quality (no loose contacts after a year of use)
Any suggestions are greatly appreciated!
