I'm buying my first pair of IEMs, or really my first pair of headphones because all I have ever used are the stock Apple ones. The last few days I have been OVERWHELMED by all these different brands and their headphones. For instance MEElectronics has like 4 pairs within $10 of each other and it's just so tough to make a decision. After spending hours of looking through reviews and threads I've narrowed my selection down to a few and want some good advice. Remember, I have never used any IEM's and I bet anything will sound great. I listen to a lot of alternative rock and some hip hop if that makes a difference. Bass isn't TOO important, if anything I'm willing to sacrifice bass for clarity.
My favorite from reading reviews are the JVC HA-FX40. They are well priced, and based on some reviews sound like the latest thing. Lastly, unless one IEM blows out the rest in the polls I'm going to base my final decision off of the posts. If you have any questions I'll be checking this thread every hour or so. Thanks so much!
EDIT:If there are cheaper headphones that are equal to/better than what I have listed then that's awesome. I don't see why I should pay $35 if I can find something that sounds the same for $15. Thanks for that, stevenlongs.
