im new here. first post.. i joined this site after googling some info on bass IEMs and found this forum and this specific thread and i had to register.
I love my bass just like you guys and im trying to decide which IEM to buy,.. from what ive read the HIPPO VB seems to be the top number one choice.
I have made a purchase from ebay for the hippo vb, the JVC fx3x and I recently listened to the Nuforce NE 600, which for 29 bucks was AMAZING)
im debating also picking up the sony mdr xb90ex which i heard is great too..
althought I did not read all posts in this thread,.. and many of the ones i read were from 2011,.. since time has passed, maybe there are new contenders or champs in the BASS department? if so can you guys tell me which ones to look into?
Also, for some weird reason, I find even the cheap 30 dollar IEMs sound WAY better than 500 dollar over the ear headphones.. the bass is just way deeper, tighter and louder. I guess because the seal is better and it goes diretly into your ear canal?
also if u guys could help me with finding a good amp.. i was looking into the fiio amps , i won an ebay bid for a fiio e7 (not the upgraded e07k andes) is that a good amp or should i get something else? i dont even know what the difference is between the e7 and e07k..
also ive been looking into replacing my ipod 4g cuz i HATE the eq settings and no bass boost feature and they are just soo weak in terms of pushing out power.. i was thinking about getting a cowon j3 or s9 but i dont know which is the better of the two or if i should get something completely different..
anyhew,.. thanks for all your help guys
