Hello to all fellow Head-Fiers,
I need your advice for buying an IEM.
WhatI have at the moment:
Senn MX980 earbuds - I love them. Neutral and detailed sound.
Beyer T1 - love them.
Beyer DT1350 - I am not sure about these. Will probably sell them soon because of portability issues.
Brainwavz M3 - pretty nice, but nothing special.
What I want: Fairly well isolating IEM (on the plane it is nice to have some isolation, but not nice to be totally isolated from the outside world). It needs to be neutral, balanced and at the same time be fast and dynamic. I listen to a lot of rock and I need the IEM to be well suited for that genre, but I will also listen to some pop and classical, so it cannot be a totally rock-specific earphone.
I want them to be well buil and have a good cable that does not bother you with too much microphonics and of course good enough ergonomics to let you listen to them on a 7-8 hour flight without problems.
I am not interested in custom IEMS or anything above $600 in price.
So far I have been pretty much interested in Sony MDR-EX1000, but read in a review that they are not very fast and there might be better choices in this respect.
In the past I had AT CK10s, and now am wondering if I should not return to them, but have to read some reviews again to see how they do.
EDIT: Just read a review or two and these are not great for rock.
CK100s are on my list, will have to read up on them too.
Do you have any suggestions for me?
Thanks in advance,
