ok just double checking.

 

Ever tried an IEM? That goes into your ear.... not as bad as it sounds they are probably the most popular thing on head-fi!

JVC HArx700's? they're comfy. tongue.gif

There are *some* comfy in ears... I know these are pretty far out of budget but the triple-fi 10s with the comply tips are pretty comfortable, and you can find them pretty cheap online?

Or she could just put comply tips on a really cheap IEM.

 

I'm sure this is just my experience, but I have no IEM's to recommend to anyone under $79 (the RE0).

 

Whereas I could recommend her the XB300 for 20 quid, knowing she'd get an OK piece of equipment.

Meelectronics has some pretty good IEMs, I use the M6 for workout/sleep and they're super comfortable (and cheap).

post #57 of 186

^ I really like my M6's totally worth the money, but that over ear memory wire with glasses is a no no, I tell you this from first hand experience!

My top pick for youuuu is XB700

 

remember in the 90's they had that slogan "It's a Sony" well they took that away for a decade but it's back now they're latest stuff is really good.

WHAT!?! The CD series w/ the biocellulose  drivers were awesome (CD2000-3000 R10's) Among the best sony ever made! The SA series for me was the letdown.

My recommendation: The Sony MDR-F1's I wear them for 12hour stretches sometimes (and I wear nice thick plastic framed glasses), and they are AWESOME! Super comfortable! here is a pic;

What take it easy she has a really careful budget. I know that Sony's bio-cellulose is top-of-the-line, even in their E888 earphone... I'm crazy about bio-cellulose after hearing that one.

 

The MDR-F1's, yeah I heard they're super comfy, if she can afford a second hand pair, if not the XB series is pretty cheap and giant pillows on your head.

$100 used, They are still being made if memory serves, and can still be repaired if they break.
