I was looking at the W3 TF10 

i heard the sm3 ck100 and UM3x were pretty neutral

W3 is gonna have more of a mid bass hump, if that's what you're looking for.

yeah pretty much but how is the tf10 different

Also the w3 has much less impact than a dynamic right?

The TF10Pro offers quick, textured, deep, punchy bass and impact almost reach to the dynamic IEMs level(like IE8). The other frequencies like mids, highs are crisp, detailed (shows hidden details in music) and soundstage is wide, open.

ok so the only main difference between the westone 3 and the tf10 is the mid bass hump

IMO If you like bass, it's not about reducing bass but balancing out the full spectrum. This means excluding all cheaper dynamic driver IEMs which have mostly mid-bass humps with little mids and crappy treble.

 

Get a higher end dynamic so you can enjoy your bass along with full presentation of mids and highs.

 

Check out the Future Sonics Atrio's which have the best sub-bass in the business and the mids and highs are clear and very present and smoooooth as! Or the JVC FX-700, Sony EX series EX600 onwards.

 

I hate the bass on balanced armature. Even with multi-bass drivers, the bass is never "real" and sounds artificial along with the absent sub-bass. For this reason, I love my Atrio's as they allow me to enjoy my bass without sacrificing mids and highs (and I have the MG5 Atrio, not the newer MG7 which has even better mids and highs!!)

well i dont know zarims description of the tf 10 sounded pretty good

 

If I do get a dynamic it will be the Miles davis tribute or the monster turbine pro copper or gold

For dynamic check Radius DDM2.

They are great IEMs for Hiphop

For BA go for eQ5

If you in Oregon, you can visit ALO audio in Portland and audition many great IEMs including Ortofons

The problem with IEMs and hearing in general is the subjectivity of it all but when I auditioned the TF10's about 5 years ago, I was severely disappointed with them in terms of bass for my trance/vocal trance music. I am guessing someone who listens to hiphop will most likely be disappointed too.

 

Monsters are overpriced IMO and suffer for major durability issues.

for your taste i think dynamic driver like the jvc fx-700 or VSONIC GR07 will provide more "colorful" sound for hip-hop music

100% agree.  Stick with a mid-higher range dynamic and you'll be much happier.  I personally listen to a lot of hip hop and rap with my VSonic GR07s and they are fantastic.  I also use the $40 Soundmagic e30s which are a little more bass oriented as well for when I hit the gym.

Ok sounds good I heard that the gr07 are pretty neutral in terms of bass response
And I need at least decent isolation and I heard that the ddm 2 are still pretty poor at it

Yes DDM2, IE8 and FX700  do not offer very good isolationdeadhorse.gif

look elsewhere for isolation
