Could someone please recommend me an IEM?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

Hey there,

A slight newbie in the IEM market here.

 

I was wondering if somebody could recommend me some IEM's?

 

Have a budget of around £100 or under.

 

I currently, and have only ever owned pairs of Sony MDR-EX500's - which I LOVE! Have tried the EX510's but was more fond of the 500's.

 

I listen to 30 Seconds to Mars, Linkin Park, Paramore, Muse etc as well as movie scores occasionally.

 

Sorry if there are already suggestions out there - have been looking around and can't really find much!

Maybe give some description of your preferred sound signature, what parts of the sound you want emphasized.

I'd go with either the re-0's or re-zeros.

Not too sure on preferred sound signature or whether I like bass, mids or treble biggrin.gif

All I know is I like my MDR-EX500's. I listen to Alternative rock music, on the Rock EQ on my IPod. I find that EQ makes it sound much clearer, without it, I find the music to sound crap. I THINK I like treble, but not sure what else. I know I tried the MDR-EX510's and found them to be good with treble but just 'lacking' in terms of what sounds so good to me. Sorry I can't be much more help than that!

Currently looking at some Panasonic HJE900's - any views on those? Or could I get better for £70?

Thanks

Anybody? Please?

 

^Instead of the above, I could get some RE-ZERO's for aronud the same price.

Both are good, ZERO being a bit more mid-forward than RE0.
