Need help buying in-ear-earphones under 100$ (mostly for electronic music)

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

Hello head-fi,

 

I am thinking of buying a good quality in-ear-earphones that do not cost more that 100$. I prefer natural sound, i do not care for to much bass and i never use EQ. I listen to all kinds music, but i mostly listen to electronic music. I mostly play music from my iPhone 3GS and laptop.

So far i have had Bose Around-Ear Headphones, Sennheiser HD485, and a 9euro pair of JVC in-ear-earphones :D. Lately, i have been using these JVC ones most. I always go back to these, not sure if it is because the sound or the comfort. HD485 sound pretty good but i don't seem to like their open sound that much.

So far i have only looked at RE0 which sound good on paper and are within my budget.

 

Please recommend me something!

Thanks

The Etymotic Mc5 will give you a sound similar to the RE0, but more accurate than any other headphone anywhere near the price. It's also more durable, as many many people complain about the RE0 breaking, and it's much less common to hear that about the Mc5. The Mc5 also isolates better (Etymotics are the best for isolation in general.)

 

Skip the breaking prone RE0, and get the Mc5 with a better memory free mylar cable, and very durable aluminum housing.

he can get an HF5 for under 100, the only advantage the MC5 has is that is responds to equalization much better than the HF5.

These Mc5 seem nice but they block way to much noise (98% !). I like noise isolation, but not to that extend that i wont have a clue what is going around me. I just took a look in Brainwavz M2 and i really like the design, price and overall description of it. What do you think?

So i am very close in deciding to pick up Brainwavez M2, my only concern is some reviewers saying they have way to much bass. When it comes to bass i am after quality not quantity.

Can someone who has used these earphones comment on this please?

The Etymotics isolate a lot, but you can still hear things, EX: talking, when the music is paused. With music playing at moderate levels, most IEM's will allow you to be completely unaware of the outside world.
