So, I love music and love headphones, mostly IEMs for a number of reasons. I was gotten a pair of Monster Jamz as a gift however, I feel they are a little; well, funny sounding after break in. Tons of low but lacking in the mids and just ok up high. Kinda muddy. I love the build quality, but am not a fan of the sound. I can return them for store credit. Now, I have been eyeing the Klipsch S4, is it really that much better than the Jamz? I have used the Bose IE2s for an extended period of time and loved the sound...but hated everything else about them, the fit was downright painful and I prefer a closed system as to not bother others and for the better isolation.
Here are some other phones I have owned:
Mids:strong...ish kinda messy
Highs:eh, not that great, good for $30 though
Poor Build Quality, Good extras though
Low: Ok, not that great
Mid:loud but not crisp, nor clean in any way
Good sound comparable to the moray, good base,not very clean sounding, cord was cool but noisy as it was a thick cloth, problems with jack breaking.
Obviously worse than the NP326, muddy..
Way too much bass for what they were but dangerously painful to pull out.
Devices I use it on:
I don't have a MP3 player anymore instead I just carry my phone(Way too much to carry for the normal college student, the iPod touch kinda had sucky sound anyway, the Droid is better, but not great),
Current Phone: Motorola Droid (Milestone)
New phone later this month:
Sony Xperia Play (Not for gaming, but it's the cheapest great phone on Verizon, free at Amazon, head it has good sound quality as well)
Laptop: 2011 Macbook Pro (Yes, I love the sound it puts out, very clean with the iE2s or under a full amp setup (hehe).)
What I listen to:
(This may be wee bit complex :) )
EDM(Darude, Airbase, etc), D&B(Pendulum),whatever you want to call Ayreon, and also Coldplay and some classical.
(Really hard gap to fill here, I know)
So what do you guys think I should get? I only want to spend around $100 and am sadly limited to Best Buy (had it been amazon I would have already gotten the RE0s) Would I be really better off with something from somewhere else than BestBuy or are the S4Is or another bud that good?
Thanks for reading though my novel.
