What earphones do you use for different genre of music and activities?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Do many people use different earphones for different genre of music/activity? I use the A151 for the gym, B2 for rock/pop/alternative, M5-MG7 for hip hop, and IE8 for everything once I get it again. What earphones do you use if you have multiple pairs?

I use my Sleek Audio SA6's for all my music when using my Iphone. I listen to anything from ambient and chillout to dubstep to progressive rock and metal. The SA6's sound good with everything.

 

Oh... and yes the SA6's are tunable, but I use the bass+ and treble+ 100% of the time. I'd say they sound pretty neutral or natural. Not bass heavy, but not bass light either. A little more sparkle wouldn't hurt, but at least they never get tiring. In this configuration they sound pretty similar to the HD650's.

- Bose ie2 for running in the city (which replaced Portapros)

- Meelectronic M6 for laying down/sleeping

- Etymotic HF3 as my out and about with lots of down time pair

- AKG K701/Etymotic ER4S as my critical listening pair (mostly classical/jazz)

- Monster Miles Davis Tribute for fun

 

I think I'm pretty happy with everything now, so time to start saving for LCD-2's!

RE0s for metal, Ety hf5s for most other genres, MS1s for Jazz/Reggae/lossless music when I can borrow an amp

-- Critical  listening: D7000

-- Singing to music: PFR-V1 or MX980

-- On foot or in the office: Monster Coppers

-- Rock: Monsters

-- Classical: ER4S with canal molds, but waiting for W4 to show up

-- Sleep: waiting for W4 to show up

-- I'm addicted to using the Sony PFR-V1 for movies on my laptop, unless the flick revolves around music or explosions -- then I opt for the MX980s.
