I have been a steady lurker for a long time now and I finally decided to join the head-fi community. I have an pair of Monster Turbines which have pretty much worn out and I am on the lookout for a new pair of IEMs as a replacement for my turbines and after a a lot of research(i.e reading up on past threads) I have zeroed in on RE0.
Just few days ago i bought 215s and didn't like their fit and cable AT ALL and decided promptly to return them.
I mainly listen to a lot of metal(heavy,death,melodic) , alt-rock, indie-rock and similar genres.
So I have almost my heart set out to buy the RE0 but since i read up on some more reviews even the UE700 look tempting. The instrument distinction, 3-d sound effect and good looks of UE700 seem worth the current price of $140(from amazon).
So based on my musical tastes please suggest should I stick to spending $79 on a pair of RE0s(Nu force 700x?) or maybe extend my budget a bit and get the UE700. Other suggestions are also welcome.
Also do you guys think REO/UE700 would be better/similar sounding than Turbines(I personally loved them alot) ?
