I am looking to buy a pair of IEM's for around $200. I have never had IEM's over $50 but I am looking to get good ones. I have Senn HD598's that I love; they're the best headphones I've ever heard and they're very comfortable..
The two biggest things I'm looking for are comfort and sound. Comfort is more important to me than sound though.
I have had Meelec M6's which I hated because I could never get them to fit and seal correctly. Now I have Maximo im-590's which sound ok, but I can never get to seal right and refuse to say in my ears.
For full sized headphones I've had Grado sr80i's which I liked, they're a little too bright for me. And I have a pair of Ultrasone HFI-680's, which I thought I liked until I got the 598's. The 598's are perfect, I can't think of anything better. The sound signature is exactly what I've been looking for. Problem is, I am not sure how to describe it and I can't seem to find any descriptions so I can find a EM with similar descriptions.
I have considered TF10's but I've heard they aren't very comfortable. Which is disappointing because I like the look of them.
I've also seen Hifiman re262.
