Please recommend a decent and inexpensive in-ear

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

My CX300's just broke and I need a new cheap pair of IEM's... Can somebody recommend some decent sounding ones that are also pretty cheap (preferably $50 or less, but even up to $100)? Thanks in advance

SoundMagic PL range. 11, 30 and 50 I think.

I think I'd like a pair that has a pretty flat response. I really like to listen to music as close to the original as possible.

If you can go up to $100, then the RE-0 at $80 is pretty much as neutral as you're gonna get in this price range.

I miss my CX300's also. :( These were fantastic sounding, cheaply priced in-ears and I don't care what anyone says about them. 

 

I've since moved on to other IEM's, but I think I'm going to check out the RE0's if they have a flat response. I've read that they're not that great for jazz(pretty much my only listened to genre of music), but people have said about many head phones that I've bought and to my ears they all sounded great with jazz.

Ignore the conventional "wisdom" around here and consider the Etymotic MC5 ($79). Its response is as flat as anyone could ask for (sounds great with classical music and I can't imagine why the same wouldn't be true for jazz), and it's built like a tank and backed by Ety's first-class customer service.

try klipsch S4 or 5 if u like bass..

try klipsch S3 if u like more balance sound

try beyer Dtx 101 if u like clarity.

 

above recommendations are in terms of sound n personally preference.

Thanks for all of the responses so far. I'll look up the ones mentioned and do some research tonight
