Looking for IEM for Trance / House / Progressive Around $65 Shipped

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 

My listening style is more like Armin Van Burren, ARTY, Cerf Mitiska Jaren, Cosmic Gate etc..

and I'm looking for IEM's around the $65 SHIPPED Range.

The Sound i'm looking for is fantastic Bass, with OK mids & highs. Not look for just a straight up BASS ONLY headphones and not looking for Muddy bass sound.

But any other suggestions I should be looking at for around $65 Shipped Max.

Looking to order like tonight / tomorrow morning so I can get them in time for my trip this coming week end.

Thanks in advance!

 

Update:

 

Meelec m6 in time for my trip, but im very dissapointed by the bass and treble is way to sharp for me.

 

any suggestions on others? or should i just step up my budget to $200+ ?

If you look around the For Sale section, you can easily find the M11+ for around $20ish shipped. I have owned them before and loved them until I traded them off :(. I got them for $20 shipped btw.

Monster Turbines...you can get them for $44.99 directly from Monster...ends up at around 55 shipped.  Awesome headphones for the price...especially if you appreciate bass.

I was reading the turbines r good for bass, not soo much for mids and highs ?

The mids and highs are pretty balance, not recessed nor forward

Brainwavz M2 is another to think about maybe?

I went ahead and ordered the Meelec m6. If its what I like I'll keep it but If not, I'll try the Brainwavz M2.

I have very similar tastes in music, and after some simple mods and a little EQ'ing on my Fuze, my M6's sound awesome. Nice tight bass, nice mid, and tamed highs. Also, I hook a cmoybb to them when I am feeling saucy, and that is when they really start to amaze me. Armin van Buuren - Control Freak(Sander van Doorn mix) is one of my favorite tracks on these iems. Good luck and hope you enjoy them.

Just a note that the Brainwavz M2 are fantastic but ultimately will leave you wanting more with your listening preference. Even EQ'd to bass they let you know that bass is not their focus.

 

I plan to buy some Nuforce 6, or save a bit for some Atrio M5s.

NuForce 700X is nice...and again, if you want bass, Turbines.  74 brand new from Amazon right now and they do everything pretty well.

For the M6, I found that some EQ helped tame the highs, specifically post #358 http://www.head-fi.org/forum/thread/453242/meelectronics-m6-review/345

 

 

Also, I took some foam pads of some crappy Blackberry ear buds and and cut them in half. One half goes in the tube leading to the driver, the other half(or a quarter of it even) I stretched across the tube opening before putting my ear tips back on. Tamed the highs and made the bass sound a bit fuller to my ears.

 

I would say give these a shot, bc imo the M6 has been a good start on my journey into headfilia. Also, pair it with a cmoybb and it thumps nice in teh bass end. good luck!

Yeah, give them another shot. If you have not burned them give them at least a few hours and see the highs do not calm down a little.

Brainwavz M2 or NuForce 700x
