Apologies in advance if I use any technical terms in completely the wrong context...
I would like to narrow down a search for a good pair of in ear monitors anywhere between £50 and £150. Its not particularly the price i'm interested in but sound quality / value. I have looked at many of the previous threads (sub $100 /£100) and the differences in choice and opinions is making my head spin.
I recently got the Sony MDR V6 for home listening and am steadily growing to love them. If possible I would like to get a pair IEMs with a similar sound signature (as possible) but am open to any suggestions.
I listen to a variety of different music types including some dance (house/techno) acoustic (fink / bonobo / cougar) singer songwriter (fink) piano and cello based (classical). Strengths for these music types are a plus and anything that can give good soundstaging (positioning of the sound?) would be better.
The sound doesn't need exaggerated bass but I appreciate the full sound the V6s seem to produce.
I hope this doesn't come across as me being lazy as I have been reading reviews / threads in this forum for a couple of weeks. Still hear are the leading contenders but I do not know if their strengths match up to my musical preferences.
I'll appreciate if anyone can advise me based on their own experiences.
I have gleaned a few ideas of my own:
