best iem for 100 bucks?
Gear mentioned in this thread:
RE0 or RE-Zero from Head-Direct might be something you should look into. I think the RE-Zero would suit you for $104 shipped. RE0 is $84 shipped and IMO sounds better than the RE-Zero but lacks a bit in bass without amping.
I'll throw in my vote for the Phonak Perfect Bass 012. From what I've heard, they have great high and mid extension without being fatiguing and enough bass to suit most anyone (except bass-heads, of course.) I have the PFE 112 w/ the green filters (which is the same thing, from what I've been hearing), so if there are any questions about the Perfect Basses I would be happy to oblige.
Still possible to get the HJE900s for around $100? Worth considering, especially if you want a bombproof pair of IEMs. They even have detachable/replaceable cords. I subject my IEMs to some abuse, so these factors play a big role in my decision making process. That said, I wouldn't have them if they didn't sound great.
