So I've always preferred the accessibility of in-ear buds, I've just never treated myself to a high-end model. Most of you will laugh, but I've carried around the Creative EP-630s for years now. They still work great, but my love for music is begging me to move on.
First off, I'll say that my absolute maximum budget is $500. That being said, I am not sure if I am willing to spend the whole amount, unless you guys convince me it's worth it of course.
I've been reading millions of reviews and basically I've narrowed it down to this:
Weston 3s - $500
- 3 individual drivers for low, medium, highs
- Plenty of ear cushion sizes
- 20Hz - 18 kHz
Logitech TripleFi 10 - $400
- 3 individual drivers as well
- 117 dB sensitivity
- 10Hz - 17 kHz
Etymotic ER4P - $300
- Rated some of the best noise isolation
Logitech UE700 - $150
- 2 drivers for highs and lows
- 5 sizes, plus 2 extra foam
- 113 dB sensitivity
Shure SE315 - $170
- Single driver with a tuned bassport
- 64 inch cable
- 22Hz - 18.5 kHz
My question to you headfis is: Do you think I'm better off starting with something on the lower-end of the scale? Anything will be an upgrade for me at this point. Is the extra cash worth that extra boost? Of these headphones, what would be your recommended choice?
Any personal reviews of these headphones is greatly welcomed.
I really appreciate you guys' help and advice with this :)
