£60-£100 to spend on a sturdy bass IEM

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

Hello Headfi!

 

I thought id treat myself to a new pair of IEM's for Christmas but im not sure what to get.

 

I like deep and powerful bass and listen to mainly Hip-Hop/Rap and a bit of Dubstep. 

I currently have the Dunu Tridents and they are brilliant for the price but i fancy something new. I really like their build quality and their look, plus they have a sparkling treble that can keep me entertained for hours on end.

 

I would like something similar but a step up. Bass, clarity, good build quality and by under £100

 

Thanks

 

AK

If you're a fan of the Tridents and their build quality, how about the Hephaes? A little too flashy for me but they fit your requirements.

I suggest the TFTA EXTRA BASS version , best bass quantity in an iem period , technically very good with good mids and extended treble.

HiSound Crystals have good bass.

Thank you for the replys!

Denon look the part (SQ wise) but i heard the cable is either too long or too short so im staying away.

 

I was thinking about the hephaes but from the mega thread, i got the impression they arent much of a step up from the tridents. What are the differences?

 

Lucozade i will look into those!

 

the Hisounds have good reviews so ill check them out too!

 

EDIT: I pulled the trigger on the TFTA's. From the reviews what can possibly go wrong :D

I got them today...

 

Feck me the bass hurts :D

 

There is a fair amount of driver flex but not as bad as the XEars. These are burning in, hopefully the clarity will come out soon. Although these are good, so far not £100 worth.

 

@luco, what tips do you use?
