Bestbuy is about to ban me from their store if I keep returning IEMs I started out at $20 for some cheap Sony's (bumpin beats), then tried the Skull Candy (smokin buds), Phillips Sport over the ear, then Klipsh S4 (they were nice, but heart my ears due to fitment and I would like more bass), Bose IE2 (very nice sound but they are not noise isolating and the bass doesn't really hit unless you push them into your ear). I am currently listening to the Soul by Ludacris SL99 (very nice sound but I do not like the heavy cord and I still want MORE BASS )
I have been searching a little for basshead IEMs and there are quite a few out there. I do not, obviously, have much experience with these types of headphones so I don't know how to interpret peoples reviews. I will outline what I want and hopefully you guys can point me in the right direction...
I am a fabricator so I am always using power tools so noise isolating is necessary.
The warehouse is VERY hot so I sweat a lot. The IEMs need to handle that or at least be easily exchanged if they go bad.
I listen to dubstep, breaks, D&B, rock, hip-hop, indie, alt rock, folk rock, even classical at times so I don't really have a true style.
My ears seem to handle bass just fine but really loud highs really hurt my ears, so I want HARD DEEP BASS, good mids, and mild highs.
I want to be able to crank the volume up without having the highs pierce to my brain
I do not want to spend over $120 with shipping so hopefully that helps.
One of the reasons why I have been dealing with Bestbuy is they are right around the corner, and they have a free replacement plan for two years if anything happens to the IEMs during that time. I am rough with my toys so I need something like that.
Thanks so much for this great website (I already cashed in on one of the deals in that 330 page thread) and thanks for your help!
