I am looking into my 1st higher-end pair of IEMs, but I'm not sure what would be best for funk, New Orleans, and jazz. I also listen to a lot of classic rock (Led Zepplin, KISS)
Some examples of the music:
I am looking something with a warmer, more musical sound. However detail and sound-stage are still important, especially with the brass. Bass emphasis isn't too important. I'd like to stay around $300 plus shipping and possibly impressions, 350 is my max. I'd prefer customs due to concerns over comfort and fit, but I can always get universals reshelled at a later date (when I have the money). So far I'm looking at the CTM200s (at the top end of the budget), HiFiMan 272(maybe a bit too analytic), 262 (cheap enough that I could get them reshelled into customs), Kozee X2 (again, a bit pricy), and Westone 2( too much bass?).
Any advice as to which would be best?
