Recently I have been contemplating selling my D7000's to fund some iem's in the $250-300 range. I have been as of late listening to portable audio %65/35. I just picked up and burned in my Brainwavz M2's and think they are nice, but am wondering what the next level has to offer. Now soundstage, and space are important to me. I like a neutral sound, with adequate bass( not a basshead, but like clean accurate bass). Are these things I can expect from this price point in iem's or am I setting myself up for a major let down. My plan would be sell the D7000's and pick up some used or new HD650's for home and use the rest towards a decent set of iem's.... IE8's, UM3x's, etc.... Thoughts?
I would also like an iem that I can use with my gdaudio compass at home. Are there iem's that offer the capability of plugging into a 1/4 headphone jack, and running off my compass?
Posted in the headphone section as well, as I know some hangout in different sub-forums and would like an unbiased opinion, or someone with experience with above listed phones/iem's
