So at the title suggest, I am looking to get step up and get some decent gear, which I plan on using on a fairly regular basis. I'm looking for any advice or opinions regarding my selection of IEMs. I am a bit of a newbie, so hopefully the information below might enabled some advice to be passed back to me.
Main Use: I really want something that will be good for my commute to work each day on the train, as well as for use at work and home while on the computer.
My Reasoning: I am looking at the E17 because it is supposed to be a pretty good amp, is portable enough for my needs, and I can utilize the DAC at home/work while using my computer. As far as the TF10s go, I have been reading lots of good things, plus their current price point is very appealing now that they are around $170 new. Overall, this IEM + amp combo would run me about $300 which is the price point I would like to stay around.
My Concerns: I have heard a lot about the fit of the TF10s, and one of my main concerns is that they won't work in my ears, or won't be comfortable for extended listening. I don't know of anywhere I can actually go and try these things out, so I will be buying online without a chance to feel how they fit. I also heard that the cables that come with the TF10s are not the most durable. I would be brining these things around with me quite a lot, and while I am careful with my gear, I want to make sure they are not to fragile.
My listening taste: I listen to a wide range of music, but I would want to make sure I have something good EDM and Rock/Alternative.
So through my research, this is the setup that I have been looking at. If anyone has feedback regarding this, recommendations about other gear, or just general advice, I would really appreciate it.
