Almost time for me to make some new headphone purchases. I'm getting that itch. I think I'm going to pick up the Philips X2, Vmoda XS (because I enjoyed everything about the M80 except the fit, yuck), but I need your guys help with IEM. So what's the latest buzz worthy IEM under $500?
My sound preference is slightly V. Not hardcore JVC V but something like Audio Technica's V where the mids aren't completely drowned out (IM70 type signature).
The ath-ckr9 were pretty good for under $210.
It isn't a slightly V-shaped in-ear though.
The rockets may or may not appeal to you, but it is also another worthy in-ear. I haven't heard it yet since I had not been able to receive one from the rocket tour yet.
Mochill is right, the ASG1+ is another one.
You could go for the new jvc fxt series that's coming near release.
