$50 In ear monitors, suggestions?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

I'm looking for a pair of IEMs for a friend. He's transitioning from the stock Apple earphones that came with his iPod nano to something better, so I think $50 would be a good start. What are his options in this price range?

It would be nice if you could recommend a brand that can be found in Greece (or this site http://www.skroutz.gr/ ) so he can buy them in person instead of an online order.

 

Thanks in advance!

Great recommendation for dry, articulate, detailed, clean sound. I would also recommend the Vsonic GR04 at $51 and GR06 at $63, which offer more bass, smoother treble, and a wider sound stage.

Not actually... I like what Apple has done also.

 

Never the less, Lets bring the new audiphiles up slowly.

 

A dual ba is a good way to do that.

 

Agreed?

Thanks for the suggestions guys! We concluded to the Apple in Ear Monitors with some spare comply foams I had hanging around, the other options where pretty hard to find in the local stores. They sound great!

 

Peace

I'd second this but you've already bought your IEMs. Hope your friend enjoys them!
