First things first, I'd like to say huge thanks to everyone here at the Head-Fi forums. I've been using these forums as a source of (excellent) information and reviews for what seems like forever so a big thank you for all the help you've unknowingly given me over the years and can hopefully continue to give me now that I've finally joined up to ask a question directly.
With that said, onto the matter at hand. Long story short I'm in the market for a new set of IEMs to replace the bundled Apple buds with my ipod classic. After looking around at various options for a fair old while I've narrowed it down to either the PFE112's or the Shure SE215's and was hoping for any opinions or insights you could offer.
If it makes any difference I can tell you that my tastes in music are pretty varied, I'll be listening to just about a bit of everything, rock, pop, metal, classical and maybe even a light smattering of country/folk music.
One other thing, I've been toying with the idea of picking up a portable headphone amp,probably a Fiio e5, so any advice on whether either of these headphones would even really benefit from this addition would be appreciated.
Thanks in advance :)
