But i can't get my hands on most of the earphones you recommend in the EU or i have to pay +$35 for it. I like the AWEI for their price and i don't have to fork out another $35 for a decent set of IEM if they break like my M1 or Xeports. These are a good gift for friends with apple earbuds :)
I really want to try out the FX31 but $40 on ebay sigh....
Sorry about the non recommend Majin. I was impressed by the sheer brute bass they have but once that initial Wow is gone and you start listening to them more and more I started to pick out more inconsistencies in the sound. I think for the price and the fact that it actually is built better than so many earphones I have is enough for anyone to try out but you are right there is too many to choose from now a days that does sound better for just a bit more in cost. I don't know if you have ever tried a FX101.
I am sure you can pick one of them up for much cheaper than the FX31. That is what I would consider a great cheapo bass phone. While the build is much cheaper than the Awei's. The sound is what makes them outstanding. Many of the cheaper Philips phones as well. Another would be the Philips SHE9700. I know these have been around a while but these are another proper bass earphone on the cheap that actually is an upgrade to the mighty SHE3580..
I have to admit if EDM and hiphop was your main listening the AWEIs do sound good with bassy genres. That bass was unexpected. Lol.
