balanced, detailed iem for $30-50

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

So I've been out of the quality headphone (iem) game for awhile. I've been basically going through a lot of cheap headphones and want something that will last long and sound better. Basically I'm looking for something that will last a little longer and sound better. The most important things to me are getting a well rounded and detailed sound, basically not too cold and not too warm. I like primarily detailed electronic (highs are important there) like say Boards of Canada, and folk music. So I want something more on the accurate side, but again not too cold and bassless.

 

My brother has a pair of mc3s, which I'd consider going with, but I don't really like the fit. I want something that will be quicker to fit in etc. I like the sound of them though, so I'd like something that sounds like that more or less. I'd also really prefer them to be balanced armature, so that I can save battery life, but that is secondary to sound quality and price.

I think your Brother is on to something...

 

2 year warranty

 

Multiple tips for a quick and easy fit, they also offer a custom tip program (for a 100 bucks)

 

Best Isolation, also comes with the !Awarness App for iPhone/Android phones.

 

Most Accurate in it's class (85% according to Etymotic)

 

I prefer the MC5 version though.

 

Good Luck, Jim

yeah i like the sound a lot, but id prefer something a bit cheaper and with a different fit. i dont like the ultra isolating deep fit of the etys, which is a shame because they are great phones. i wish they would offer more options in terms of fit
