IEM or Over-the-Ear? Can't decide...

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Hi,

 

After lots of consideration, I chose a couple of finalists for my next headphones:

 

  • BrainWavz M1                      (45$)
  • BrainWavz M2                      (60$)
  • Sennheiser HD 202 II            (46$)
  • Sennheiser HD 205 II            (60$)

 

Now I can't decide whether I should get one of the HDs or one of the Ms...

 

I use my headphones only on-the-go, connected to my iPhone, so portability and sound isolation are very important.

Because I use them a lot, durability is important too.

 

I have never before used over-the-ear full headphones, so I am completely at loss about sound and bass response.

Bass is important too, because I am used to bass-heavier IEMs.

 

What's your educated opinion? What should I get for the best experience?

 

Thanks ahead!

Yuval.

 

PS: Because of shipment issues (not living in the states...), I can't get all of the models you may suggest, and absolutely not for the same price, so alternatives are good, but might not be available.

How about On-Ear headphones?

 

I've used the Sennheiser PX200 and enjoyed them. They are very portable (fold up small and fit into a nice sturdy plastic case).

 

I saw these listed on Amazon for $49.99 a few weeks back. Just my 2 cents.

Thanks for the reply, but when I tried using the Porta Pros once I could here everything around me. The isolation level is non-existent...

 

Well, Now I have a different debate, as I read some more reviews (and I hope this would be the last one):

 

  • Vsonic GR-02 Bass edition
  • Hisoundaudio POPO
  • Audio-Technica ATH-M35

 

Any thoughts?

 

Thanks ahead!

Yuval.
