I'm looking for some IEMs. I'd preferably pay under $50, but I'm a bang for buck kinda guy so if something is $100+ but that much better, I would consider it. I'm currently scratching my chin over the likes of the GR07 and EX600.
I listen to a wide range of music (electronic, indie rock, indie pop, metal, hardcore, punk, experimental, new wave, etc.) so I suspect a balanced spectrum is best for me, which is why I went with my M50s and am considering the A151s; but I fear that the bass might be too lacking in the A151s, based on reviews. I want balanced.. but I like my bass too.
I'll be using these while commuting to work so some noise reduction is ideal. My source material is going to likely be a rooted (Android) Nook or an Android phone. Also, I have small ears, so if that makes a difference..
