Se215's lack bass...Future Sonics Atrio M5 (MG7)?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

I've been reading around the forum for a while now and living my life reading and searching...but I still need some help!

 

I've had some SE215's for a while now and they just don't hit the mark in terms of bass.  They're also too bright sounding for my tastes.

 

I listen to mostly electro/drum and bass/house/dance music in the gym/while out walking.  Source for music is usually my clip+

 

Will the Atrio's be more up my street?  Budget is £120 maximum.  Although I'd happily spend less!

 

Thanks.

I think the Atrio's would be great for what you need them for.  They work really well with EDM and there not bright but still have good detail with the bass bass out of any IEM I've heard.

The M5s got a lot of bass, but it takes more of sub-bass over bass. I feel the SE215 has more bass, but I could be wrong.

Are there any other alternatives worth checking out?

 

I have a bad history with IEM's in terms of not being happy with them.

 

Currently feel a bit 'stuck' with my SE215's as there doesn't seem to be much that will fulfill my criteria.

 

The apparent good fit and comfort of the Image X10i's but I don't know if they'll deliver on bass or withstand gym use?

 

At a lower price point the Beyerdynamic MMX 101iE's look tempting based on reviews I've read, e.g. : http://www.whathifi.com/review/mmx-101ie

 

Any help would be appreciated.

Check out the Yamaha EPH-100.

You can take a look at the Monster Turbines as well. Bass beats the SE215 IMO.
