so what are the one's that I should consider? my budget is 200$ max.

 

thanks.

 

P.S. I mainly listen to instrumental/vocal music so realistic timbre is a must.

Final Audio Design Heaven IV is 174$:

It has a fantastic timbre and a bass that you would never expect from a BA.

Here are some reviews:

I have the Somic Efi 82 on the way so I'm looking forward to compare them.

I agree, the Takstar Pro 80 were a great discovery for me, and it was all just a fluke considering where I'm at in the headphone world.

 

Recommend A+

Since I will buy from amazon.co.jp I was thinking to throw a cheap (~ ¥2000/$20) IEM in the bag just to justify the total shipment cost!

So far I have found these close to this price: AT-CK323, JVC-FX31, JVC-FX40 and JVC-FXD60

The most promising according to amazon reviews seems to be the AT but I haven't found any info here so I don't know.

Would you suggest any of them as a value choice? Is there any hidden Japanese IEM that I'm missing?
I don't really care for anything much more expensive since I need them as "gym" IEMs so nothing more valuable than those.

I'm in Europe so I can't buy AT CLR100/COR150 that have similar price

I think the nicer Knowles TWFK IEM's are shining examples of how balanced armatures sound compared to dynamic drivers, on par with Etymotic ER-4, I often switch back and forth trying to decide which I prefer.

 

You might be interested in the T-peos H-100, but then again a hybrid sort of defeats your intention of wanting to try balanced-armature sound.

Have a look at the Green House GH-ERC-MBK, seems to fit your ticket http://www.amazon.co.jp/dp/B0050DXR3O/

Thanks for these but since they are similar to Etymotic sound I don't really think that they will appeal to me. I'm not a basshead but I prefer more musical signature than the analytical of Etys

The FX40's are musical to me. The bass and treble really stand out.

That makes sense, they're not amazing or anything anyway, just amazing for 2,000 Yen.

 

 

Have a look at this page and click on "sort by price" http://www.e-earphone.jp/html/page109.html

True, but the treble really stands out!

I am also leaning towards FX40 but I've read some bad reviews here. Also CK323 seems extremely interesting and had a place in both 2013 VisualGPs but no one tried them here.

Yeap I can understand their value and they seem quite impressive for that price but I just need a musical/fun IEM just for a cheap everyday alternative.
The list is neverending at that page haha

I really liked the fx31, sounds more refined version of fx40.  Plus u can get the fx40 here on amazon for $18, the fx31 were a Japan only release i beleive.  I used them in the gym many times without issue

Dual balance armature that no one have is the astrotec ax-7 which is $145 from bigbarginonline . Give them a try and let us know biggrin.gif

Do you think that FX31 has better details and is more balanced? Also I can't stand sibilance that I've suffered with some of my past cheap IEMs.

I think I would like an FX40 without the problems, also I can't buy from amazon.com since I'm in the EU and the best price shipped for these is ~$45
