hey guys i wanted to know if someone could help point me out in the right direction
i used the senn ie8 for about a year n half but they broke so i sent them off for repair, a few weeks later i was told sennheiser would not repair and was given a refund. the problem is i didnt really want to spend £230 on earphones again to get the same sound quality so i looked around and settled on getting the shure SE215, i have used them for 3 weeks now, to be honest im not as happy with the sound as i thought i would be. ill make a small comparison now, im not very good at explaining but ill try my best.
ie8 bass - a good amount of quality bass, not deep but a nice natural bass that gave the music weight.
Se215 bass - small amount but goes deep like subwoofer deep, good for drums but made the music sound lighter.
ie8 mids and highs - a lot more laid back and natural sounding mids with a laid back highs with no sibilance
Se215 mids and highs - mids are more forward and agressive, guitar sounds excellent but it becomes too harsh after a short while and the highs got sibilant at louder volumes.
i have sent the shures back and now looking for another set as a replacement that will sound more like the ie8 and sibilant free
could anyone help and reccommend some iems in the £100 / $155 range that might be more for me?
thanks for reading.
edit; i forgot to mention that i only listen to metal.
