£100 earphones for electronic music on the go?

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 

Hi everyone,

 

I'm new here, so take good care of me etysmile.gif

 

I'm looking for some new earphones that I can use on the go. Right now I have some HDJ-2000, but I would really like having some in-ear.

 

The device I'm listening from is my iPhone 4, and no amp, so they should be able to be used with my iPhone. At home i have a TC. Konnekt 6 firewire interface, but I don't know if that makes a difference.

 

I mainly listen to electronic music, not the bass-pumping house, but more electronica and ambient, where there's a great focus on details and soundspace, and a good (but also deep) bass.

 

Also, I like trance music a lot, so I'm looking for some earphones that goes well with electronic music, have a great treble and mid, but also a precise bass that doesn't disturb too much. Most of the music I buy is lossless, and if that's not available, I'm going for at least 320kbps MP3.

 

Here's some examples of what I like to listen to:

 

Hope that clears everything up! Thanks in advance. I'm looking forward for some suggestions.

 

Edit: Is it possible to get some where I can replace the earplugs? I.e. if I in the future find some better/get custom molded earplugs?

The Panasonic HJE900, Sennheiser IE7, Turbine, Sony EX600, EX510 are highely recommended.

Love the IE7 but wouldn't pick it for your tastes; the EX600 would be a great fit! Haven't heard the other recommendations...

Thanks for the replies!

 

I'm not really into over-the-ear kind of earphones, so I would prefer something else than the EX600's.

 

What about UE Triple Fi 10? Or any other suggestions?

the TF10 also goes over ear,

 

look at the Hippo VB, Monster Turbine , Panasonic HJE900, and a lot more.

 

we've got a good list in the Basshead Club thread, go there. the link is in my signature.

HJE900 overall is really really great for the play.com price. But the bass is slightly muddied and has less texture compared to SE215. If you want thumping deep bass, the Panasonic is better, though.

Yeah, I had looked at the Shure SE215-CL actually. Even though they're over-the-ear.

 

But are they good? If yes, I'm gonna buy these :)

What about Phonak PFE 012? They look quite nice.

how bassy do you want?

post #10 of 13

Not to threadjack or anything but I'm in the exact situation as the OP. I bought the ex600 last week and they just are bassy enough for my tastes, however they are really comfortable and good for other genres. I also have the SP51s but they just dont have the subbass that I heard from a pair of MTPC I use to own. With that said, I've been looking for something with good subbass, and the mids not being too recessed, kinda like the DT990 (sorry haven't heard enough IEMs to compare) So I've been eyeballing a couple of IEMs that might fit the bill:

 

Sennheiser IE7 ~$100 (refurb)

Futuresonics Atrio MG7 ~$170

Radius DDM ~$150

MTPG/MTPC/MD? ~$200-$250

 

Isolation really isnt a big deal to me, I use them primarily at work, however comfort is a must. I also prefer to wear my earphones straight-down, the memory wire on the sonys bug me. So for 200 bucks and less what would be a suitable suggestion.

So should I choose Sennheiser IE7 or Phonak PFE 012? :)

 

Don't want them to be TOO bassy. But I want the bass to be clean, filthy and fast, while preserving good treble and mids.
