I'm after a little advice if you guys would be so kind.
Back in 2007 I bought my first set of nice IEMs, UE Super.Fi 5 Pro's. After initially being dissapointed with the not bass heavy sound of my cheap Sony's, the monitors one day came alive and I fell in love with the sound. Last year however, the left side monitor broke and I've not been able to get hold of another pair. I then tried a pair of SE420's and was shocked at how much I hated the sound signature of these. They felt like they had very little bass and the mids were harsh and scratchy (I have tinnitus and am very sensitive to middle range sounds as a result). I then tried a pair of Super.Fi 5's - much better but nowhere as good as the Pro's. I've been searching for something as close to that lovely sound for 12 months now and after the jack connector broke on the 5's I need something new.
I've been put right off Shure with my experience of the SE420's so I wont be going down that route. I've been tempted by the UE 700's and also the Triple.Fi's which are pretty much the top of my budget but would really like to know how close the sound signatures are of both those sets to the Pro's. I'm also tempted by the Westone UM2's or just the 2's.
I never considered myself a basshead but I did love the bass on both the 5's and the Pro's and I think this is due to my tinnitus so if anyone could reccomend one of the sets above I would be very appreciative.
Thanks in advance
