Noob needs help with new Earphones.

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Hello, Am a complete noob on this forum apart from reading some stuff in the last two days.

 

Two days ago my sennheiser cx300 II broke down.

I bought them like 3 years ago because I was tired of replacing my $15,- earphones every month.

So I decided to spend a bit more money, back then they costed 50 euro's which is around ($60,-).

 

I listen to music at the gym, college, on the bike, and on my bed.  (I listen to it infront of my pc aswell but I got a headset for that but its not like am going to take my headset outside since its huge and not comfy while on my bed.) I basically always listen to music I love music.

 

So I need new earphones this time I want to spend a bit more again so around 100 euro's which is like $120 i think.

 

I've been looking on the internet and I found 3 earphones so far that might suit my needs:

 

- Ultimate Ears™ 600 Noise-Isolating Earphones

- Bose® IE2

- Kipsch S4i In-Ear Headphones

 

I have read some good things about Ultimate Ears I've seen a lot of hate on Bose and I dont know if i like the whole hanging in your ear. Because I am in crowded places a lot and in public transport sometimes. And I dont really fancy the Kipsch design but if they are good I'll get used to it.

 

I listen to the following kinds of music:   Rap, Dubstep, Hip-Hop, House, Pop, Trance, Electronic, Drum and Base. And at the gym I listen to metal.

 

Please give me your opinion on the 3 earphones i listed.

And if you know better options for me (which you probaly do) please tell me. (would appreciate a link since to the earphones you suggest since loads of people use abbreviations on this forum that I don't know.)

 

Help would be much appreciated ; )

Imo either the Etymotic HF5's or the Fischer Audio Tandem.

For around £80 You can buy from the Audeo Phonak range of PFE (perfect fit earphones). I'm going to suggest you do a little research on these as they are well respected IEMs. 

 

Good luck.

These 2 threads are a great starting point and have provided me with a lot of valuable info:
