Best IEMs for around $200?

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 



Looking for IEMs that are durable ( or at least not fragile :) with a balanced sound. Two models I am considering are the Yamaha  EPH-100 or the Monster Turbine Copper Pro.  Music I listen to is mostly rock, with some Ambient and classical thrown in. Any input would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks in advance

Monster Pro IEMs tend to break pretty often from what I hear. They do have a lifetime warranty but itll still be a hassle to deal with

thanks- , the $199 price at Amazon made them appealing but that is what I have heard also

Either the EPH-100 or the Rockit Sounds R-50 (which is a cheaper and better fitting version of the GR01).  Both are balanced and both are very well built but the R-50 has better sound quality, the EPH-100 just has a bit more bass impact but its not as clean sounding as the R-50's bass.

Hey saw your post and decided to put my 2 cents in.  I have the Monster Turbine Pro Gold's and haven't had any real issues with them.  I have had one side blow the speaker however thats because I do play my music rather loud.  IMHO they are very well balanced and from the reviews the coppers don't have as much bass however has a bit wider soundstange.  I've thrown everything from classical to rock to metal to R&B at them and to me, they are awesome.  When I did call the phones in, I sent them in for like $4, had tracking on them, and the turn around time was around 2 weeks or so.  I received a brand new box and all I had to send in was the buds themselves.  Again to me, they are worth it and you get 2 times to call them in regardless of the reason.  I don't think you'll find that with anyone else.  Even if you find something that "may" be more durable, if you break them your done and out of $200.  So one way to look at it is, your getting a $200 product for -$200 lol. Just my thoughts though.

The Monster Copper are a great sounding IEM and I found them pretty well constructed, and very durable.

Atomic Floyd Superdarts may be on option. Looks very well built. As for sound quality - lot of listeners admit fantastic presentation.
