In-ear for jazz and acoustic music??

post #1 of 24
Thread Starter 

Hi!

 

I´m looking for a pair of phones for my iphone.

I listen mostly at jazz, acoustic music and some rock

I´m looking for a open natural/slightly warm sound with good midrange at first

 

Miles davis, Pat metheny, norah jones, daughtry, bryan adams...

What can you recommend in the pricerange of 150-180$

 

I´m curious on:

 

Q-jays

Fischer BDA-02 (maybe to bright for me?!?)

Ultimate ears 700

 

 

 

 

Is it worth the money to climb a notch to:

 

Westone 2

Westone UM2

 

 

Do you have other suggestions?

Sleek SA6 would fit the bill.  Open, natural, and warm (deep insertion rather than shallow) are characteristics I would use to describe them, and they fit below your budget if you don't mind grabbing a used pair.

do they have clear sound with good treble to?

Also consider Triple.Fi 10, RE0, Monster Turbine Pro Copper or MD Tribute, and RE252.

Monster turbine pro copper seems very interesting!

Where can I find them to best price?

 

Is it safe to buy them used on amazon? Read some about copies that´s on ebay ans so on...

 

Just saw on ebay, Miles Davis tribute for $199, can it be originals or fake?!?

Hmm... someone's selling the Ortofon EQ-7 for $225 in the sales forum. If you can get a deal with the Ortofon EQ-5 , i'd get that instead.As I've heard that they don't roll off too much as its older  brother , EQ-7. But that's only what I've read , I've only had the EQ-5's and not the EQ-7's so I'm really not sure if they really are that similar. But in my experience, I enjoyed the EQ-5 with almost anything especially with acoustic/acoustic instrumentals as that's one of the main genres that I listen to.

Coppers are all around awesome.

I think some people got the best price from giving onecall a call.  Ask in the MTPC thread.

Imo the MTPG/MDs do a lot better for the type of music mentioned while the MTPC coppers fare better with faster electronic music.

I was looking for IEMs with the exact same characteristics you want and narrowed it down to the Monster Turbine Pro Golds, IE7, and Klipsch Custom 3's. I ended up going with the IE7 and am very happy with how they pair with my jazz/acoustic library. They're warm/natural and have a great midrange.

True, Coppers do well with electronic, but I prefer my TF10 for that more.

Acoustic and jazz? Get the Ortofons if you can afford them. Don't know about the e-Q5 but the e-Q7 sounded best with this type of music.

post #13 of 24

e-Q5 is an excellent option and it is about 100 $ less then its elder brother e-Q7

 

 P.S.Query Dimitri at MusicaAcoustics for headfi members' Special rate.. (if it is still available)

I didn´t like the design on the eq5 and eq7..

 

I´m really into the MTPC and MTMD but don´t which one is best for me?!?

Does anyone know where I can find used MTPC or MD from a store that ships worldwide??

 

Don´t want to buy from ebay or amazon if they´re fake.
