Best IEM for $200 or under??

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

I have $200 to spend on IEM's and I mostly listen to Rock, Metal, and industrial, so wondering which IEM would you guys recommend?? Thanks :)

Depends on what you are looking for.

 

Are you looking for analytical sound or a warmer, "funner" sound?

 

I currently own the Shure SE215 and I like them a lot. They aren't the most balanced IEM's but they are fun to listen to.

Bass is tight and strong, not as strong as the Turbines which I found to be too bloated.

Mids are present and good sounding.

Highs are laid back, no sibilance.

 

Comfortability wise they are good, I am not used to having anything stuffed in my ear canals but these aren't so bad. There were a few more comfortable options but the cons were greater than their pros.

There quite a few out there available.

But it would help if you specify what are your preferences?

 

I can suggest Radius DDM as best value Dynamic Dual driver on the market,

anther famous one for under 200$ is DBA-02,

Also Re252

Westone 3,

Monster turbines among others..

Can consider UE Triple Fi 10 too, below $200 from Amazon.

@yello131, Preferences would be durability and perfect bass on the IEM's.

 

@fatthumb Those were my first choice on amazon, but are they actually worth it?? 

There are too many treads on these UE TripleFi 10

Actually I just ordered TF10 from Amazon too, I have Radius DDM and wanted to try something else. Although there is potential issue on the cabling (can be solved by investing in better replacement cable), I am willing to try it out (it's pretty cheap for 3 BA drivers IEM). Not to mention that I can easily re-shell this in future if I really want to :)
