Wondering if anyone can help me with my pursuit of >$150 IEMs. (might be willing to push it that far).
I'm looking for a pair of IEM ~$100 that are quick, have a warm dark sound, slightly rolled off highs so there isn't any shrillness or fatigue or clinical sound, good separation without sounding too airy or glassy, and very quick as well. Does anyone have any suggestions?
I have some Thinksound TS02 and they sound terrible to me. They are way too boomy and punchy and farty. Upper mids can't be distinguished at all and they're way too slow with quicker paced music. I prefer the stock ipod headphones in comparison because they at least have a more neutral quicker sound and upper mids are distinguishable. The stock ipod earbuds obviously sound horrible otherwise though.
I've a pair of Sennheiser HD650 with Darkvoice Tube amp, Some Beyer's, and recently Sennheiser HD558 and I really don't like either the Beyer or less expensive Sennheiser sound signature. They're too airy and clinical to me and sound glassy. I like the warm dark sound of the HD650 and was wondering if there are any IEM which might have similar sound characteristics.
Appreciate any help or advice.
