Ok, so I've been lurking on here for a while now and finally joined!
The bug has bitten me quite hard recently
I've had some experience with some of the more "mainstream" IEM's before finding this forum.
My first IEM was a Shure E2c, which was good to me for the time being because coming from home audio I didn't see headphones/IEM's as something to spend too much money on. Well as time passed I found myself wanting more and more. The E2c's had a lousy fit and sound quality was just ok..
My second IEM was a Shure E3c. The E3c's were a step up clearer sound, lighter, and smaller so the fit was better also.
Third IEM Ultimate Ears Superfi 5 Pro. At this point I thought i was crazy to spend $250. However that all changed when these came in I was blown away at the sound that came out of these things.
Current IEM is a Ultimate Ears Triplefi 10 with Westone ES cables. I am liking the sound signature of these very much. I think of them as a faster/clearer superfi 5.
I am looking for another IEM that will suit my tastes if you guys could help me.
Based on my past experiences I like Bass and Treble to be boosted a bit. "Vshaped sound signature"
I like the Bass level on the Triplefi's but a little more would be better.
I also love the sparkle/clarity of the treble in the triplefi's. on some songs it becomes fatiguing though :/
also I have had no issues with with the fit of the SF5 / TF10 most likely due to the wire ear loops so those would be a plus.
DAP I've been using is the latest iPod Nano (the square tiny one) with EQ off.
most likely will be purchasing a Cowon J3 tomorrow also.
Music I mostly listen to:
IEM's i was thinking about:
Turbine Pro Copper/gold
Let me know what you guys think!
