Last call for $150-$200 IEM

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 

I like EDM but also bass light stuff but with that said, I would rather have bass than not and so the TF10's top the list.

 

I don't want to get near or past $200 though and another question. I heard UE had a TF10 for $100 two years in a row on black friday right?

 

My equipment I have is in my page but don't worry about that.

 

I prefer many artists ranging from:

xKore

Skrillex

Deadmou5

Pendulum

Eminem

Jay Sean

Jason Derulo(however I spell it)

Iyaz

Lil Wayne

Katy Perry

Lady Gaga

Black Eyed Peas

Adele

Dr.Dre

Electric Light orchestra

Bad Religion

Beethoven

Mozart

Linkin Park

Rise Against

Evanescence

Rammstein

Breaking Benjamin

Skillet

Coldplay

Fall out boy

My Chemical Romance

Perfume

Girls Generation

AKB48

2NE1

Ito Yuna

Ayumi hamasaki

Alan

 

And many more. I listen to a universal amount of genres but mainly the popular ones in that genre so while I listen to classical or pop or jazz, it's only with popular artists.

Yep, know about those, but they don't seem to fit me. Currently the FXD80's loook nice.

I listen to a lot of the same artists as you OP.

I would say TF10 would fit your requirements. For the price you can find them now they really are a steal, remembering not long ago they were $300+. They do pop up on the boards here, but you'll need to be quick as their popularity is strong. I own GRO7 and I much prefer TF10 for my EDM. The bass is quite punchy but I wouldn't call it overpowering. It's very good texture with many layers. and stays very well behaved. The clarity and air,TF10 maintain is truly magical, along with their separation and speed gives TF10 the ability to keep busy congested tracks in check.

The best way I can describe them with female vocals on high bit rates is like listening to two angels singing. smile.gif You'll hear every instrument separately without trying.

I've been reading the FXD80 thread and many members I know that are no BS give their thumbs up for the FXD80 and many own the GR07 and TF10 so I'm thinking.

 

I can easily get a TF10 instead but....?

The FXD80 has also shown some interest in my direction, I've been following it. I think in this situation would be best try both selling the other in which ever way you please. Knowing TF10 have decent resale value shouldn't make this a problem. It's just too soon for me to try FXD80.

I have limited funds and am a bit fearful on doing that. It's a big problem sadly :(

Well, in that case I'd try the TF10 first personally. it will sell easier if you don't happen to like it. (which I think you will)

Hey for EDM is there anything better than the tf10? I tried them, no doubt they sounded good. But i had problems with the isolation.

For EDM? They're good overall but maybe not enough bass for what the OP wants

I am actually surprised how good electronic music sounds with the GR01, which is said to sound that same.

The FXD80 would make for a very impressive first iem. Besides the midrange being a bit recessed compared to the GR07 and DBA-02 (which the same could be said for the TF10), it is the clearest most detailed iem I've heard. The bass doesn't interfere with the mids (no mid-bass hump) and highs are very clean and extended, which is quite a rare combo. You might avoid potential fit problems as well with the FXD80, and the build quality is extremely solid. The things are all metal with a beefy rubber strain relief. I'd definitely go for the FXD80.

I did extensive research on the FXD80's and found it wasn't for me. Why? FOTM in the sense that it is an IEM that will suit some peoples ears and not other leading to it being a FOTM and not a engrained product such as this in generality. What does this say to comparing with what I want? Nothing as I haven't tried them however to be on the same side of things, buying a tried and approved IEM such as the tF10 was the most logical descision.
