Any suggestions folks? Oh yes budget is no more than £300 / $500.

My recommendation is the Shure SE535.  I believe that they fit the description you gave quite well.  I use mine with IPod Classic 7Gen > Fiio L9 > JDS C5 > Fiio RC-SE1 > 535's...all genres of music.  They are an especially nice pairing with the C5.  I haven't heard with Cowan J3.

How does the new Dunu DN-900 compare to the highly rated HiFiMAN RE-400?

Do you think using ipod shuffle as a music player on my newly bought dunu dn-900 would suffice?
post #1221 of 1232

iPod shuffle does not suffice for quality audio

 

Grab a Clip Zip/Clip+: cheaper, better audio, expandable storage...oh, and you can choose what you listen to.

Hi

 

I am looking for bass heavy iem to listen to hip hop (eminem) mostly.

I currently have klipsch image s4. not very happy with the bass i get from it at low volumes, love the bass at high volumes tho

I want to upgrade to something with much more bass and should be less than $100

i came up with 2 from the review which are available for purchase. Red Giant Malleus A00 and DUNU DN-18 Hawkeye

which one do you think matches for me better?

also heard of Velodyne vPulse, is it better than these 2?

post #1223 of 1232

More bass than S4? Check out the TFTA IEMs, they might be right up your alley.

Hey, I'm looking for some good IEM for around $100-150 and I'm currently looking at the HiFiMan RE400, mostly for the good review they got in this thread.

 

However, I'm looking for some alternatives as well. I listen to a wide variety of music, but do follow electronic music mostly. I'm worried if the bass is too low on these for bass-heavy music. I also want the headphones to have really good noise cancellation. I'm also interested in the JayBird BlueBuds X for the wireless capabilities and I'm wondering how they compare.

 

Does anyone have any recommendations, or should I be fine with the RE400's?

Thanks Gilly

I checked about the TFTA and TFTA 1XB looks good but its very expensive, i am not sure if i should go that higher

Any idea about HiSoundAudio Wooduo 2? I heard they were great for bass after some researching

Hey! I'm looking for an IEM between the $30 to $60 price range. To my understanding, these are the currently recommended pieces:

Sony MH1C
SteelSeries Flux In-Ear
VSonic V02

 

Unless there are other recommended earphones, which of these would you recommend to a person that appreciates very accurate

sound but also enjoys noticeable bass?

Klipsch S4 are decent too. If you want noticeable bass I would bump it up a little and get the SE215 Shure

In that price range, these are the most recommended currently:

 

Zero Audio Carbo Tenore ZH-DX200-CT

Ostry KC06

Havi B3 Pro I

Been out of the loop, what are the best earbuds under 40$ currently, friend needs one, he doesn't listen to super bassy stuff. Says he's currently listening to Neil Young.
