IEM buying advice please

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

First off, I was looking at the buying guide by price range ( http://www.head-fi.org/wiki/buying-guide-headphones-by-price-range )

 

I am looking for a cheap-ish IEM for general use, gym and so on. Currently using PL-30 with my Clip+, occassionally with a cMoy (I am going to get a E7 soon, since they are very cheap on www.dealextreme.com (I assume they aren't fake?)

 

Going by that buyers guide it seems the PL-50 would be the logical choice as it seems they are even comparible to the IEMs in the price range above too?

 

As far as my tastes go, I would be listening to jazz, classical, hip hop and trance. So the RE0 wouldn't really be applicable as "male vocals sound slightly sucked out or recessed", which would be a great disadvantage for hip hop. I like a good sound stage, but understand I won't get anything mind blowing for this price range.

 

I live in New Zealand so would have to buy from somewhere willing to ship here.

 

To summarise, I am looking for a lowish budget upgrade from the PL-30, but am unsure what to look at or if there is anything that would provide a decent gain up to 100USD.

 

Thanks!

Sony EX510(highely recommended because it's offers overall clean detailed sound with deep punchy bass and wide soundstage). Others IEMs like Turbine, UE700, FX500, SHE9850, RE-ZERO and TF10Pro.
