Greetings fellow music lovers
I recently got myself a pair of IEMs - the Monster MDT's - and I'm loving them so far. They are very enjoyable to listen to - very "alive" sounding and offer me a great option when I want ultra portability. But I can't help but feel something is missing. Before these I had the Sennheiser HD25-1 II, although they are beat by my monsters in some aspects, I can't help but miss the bass slam effect the HD25's offered and I know that it's just not possible to get the same effect from IEM's.
I gave the Senn's away to a family member, and as it would be rude to ask for them back, I'm looking for a new pair for around £200-£300.
I want to take this opportunity to try something new, so here is my critera in priority order.
- Build quality/Aesthetics
- Bass slam/impact
- Forward mids
- No harshness in the highs
Build quality is not something I want to skimp on, and that's why it's on the top of my list. I want to feel the quality in my hands.
The type music I want to listen to with these is Techno/Trance, Dubstep so the bass slam is very important to me. i want to be able to feel the power of the bass moving air, but I also want it to be tight and quick so it keeps up with faster beats.
I want it to be in the portability bracket of the HD25's. I don't want anything too bulky.
Without really compromising on the above 2 points, I want to get as much clarity as possible and overall SQ within my budget.
So what do you guys think? I look forward to hear you suggestions.
P.S. Just to add, I would have loved the DT1350's with stronger bass slam, if only they existed. The form-factor and build quality is everything I'm looking for as well as SQ. So if there is anything similar with stronger bass impact please let me know.
