I currently have a pair of 500 vi's I got a second pair as a gift. Being i already had a pair I returned the second pair. Being I have the extra cash is it worth adding a bit of cash and upgrading and use my current pair as back up? I was looking at the UE 700's or the triple fi's. I listen to audiobook and hip hop/r and b. I am also open to other earbuds but not sure what to look at.
Is it worth the upgrade UE 500vi
Gear mentioned in this thread:
I saw the TF's on sale at Amazon for 162.00 that would be the top end. I prefer a balanced sound, but I don't want to loose my low end like some IE sets like to do. I will be using this set to work out in along with listening to music at my desk.
TF10s are not balanced... However, different people perceive differently. How balanced did you feel the 500s were?
Good question I thought the lows were good, but in some cases got muddy. The mids were fine, but the highs seems to be an issue on this pair. The were there but not defined or clear.
OK, so you did notice some imbalance :p Brainwavz B2s are pretty balanced, however, bass can be a tad light for some people.
