Which iem should I get for under $90?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

I mostly listen to electro and bass oriented music but I appreciate some balance for my audio, i was listening to them with my a-jays three until the jack for the a-jays started breaking, so now I'm looking for a new pair of iem's for around $90 and under.

 

So far I've seen positive reviews for:

Ultimate Ears 600

Sony XBA-1

T-Jays Three

Fischer Consonance

Which I am considering, but am not sure which would best suit my needs.

 

Some other suggestions would also be great thanks.

I like the XBA-1 on your list...

A very well kept secret.

You could also score some Etymotic HF5 or MC5 for under a hundred too.

Cheers, Jim

I checked a review on the etymotic HF5 and the build quality was a bit poor..

Thanks for the suggestion, I might settle for the xba 1 but I'll just wait for some other responses before I decide..

I've examined the XBA-1 though I haven't listened to it. It's not even within a country mile of being as well made as the HF5 (strain reliefs? What strain reliefs?)

Agreed!

And a 2 year warranty too.
