[UPDATED] Best sub $50 IEM from mainstream brands @UAE for Rock music

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 

Hi guys !

I got a $40 Amazon gift coupon from AMD and planning to buy an IEM to replace my damaged Samsung IEM I got with my mobile phone. I need to pay the shipping, aprox. $16.7 from the coupon. So, the effective amount I got is around $23.3 !

 

I listen to rock, U2, Coldplay, Daughtry, Audioslave...etc !

And I like clear sound and above average bass but I HATE BRITTLE TREBLE, makes me gnash my teeth away !

 

So, which is best choice for me !

 

BTW, here are the contenders

 

1. Jlabs J3

Bad: shrill treble ?

 

2. Meelec M6

Bad: recessed mids

 

3. JVC HA FX 51 Micro HD

Bad: NO SHIPPING TO UAE !!

 

 

Please post your recommendations !

Thanks !!

 

EDIT:

4. Altec Lansing UHP 206 Backbeat

Bad: ?

 

5. JVC Marshmallow

Bad: Muddy bass ?


UPDATE:

I lost my Jlabs Jbuds J3 and I'm looking for a sub $50 IEM from Dubai (UAE) !

From your list, since you can't get the FX51 then go for the J3, good balanced sound, well built, good Customer service through their website.

If you can throw in a few extra dollars, I would recommend the Brainwavz Beta.

Thats the problem, money rolleyes.gif
If I had the cash, I would be getting the Headdirect RE 0 which available in my country tongue.gif

BTW, if I wait till Nov 25 Black Friday, would I get some good deals ?
I've tried many 'Lightning' deals before but none of the sellers are willing to ship UAE !!

So, what should I do ?
Should I wait ?

Ok, I got the Jlabs Jbuds J3 from Amazon !
Didn't like it !
I can't 'feel' there is any treble (I mean high freqs.) on it, kind of a big let down. Also felt that even the EP-630 is better than the J3 interms of treble redface.gif

Anyway, thanks for the recommendations guys !

BTW, I lost the J3 on my way back from college => new IEMs are due !! smily_headphones1.gif
My brother is workin @Dubai and he has promised me to get an IEM for me from there !

I guess there ( Dubai ), only IEMs from mainstream brands are available...Sony, JVC, Sennheiser, Audio Technica, Logitech...etc !

So, which is the best bet for rock music out of these brands ?
Max budget ~ $50 (can raise if its worth it !)

Should I go for the JVC HA FX 51 Micro HD
