Sorry for the delay. Just got back from vacation. Hope you found what you are looking for. I would still say the mh1 with tape mod is my fav of those three.

Happy holidays.

I got into this thread after purchasing a pair of JVC FX67s, while I can't compare them to anything else, I think they sound amazing for the price ($20) are are a lot more engaging than the Shure SRH440s. they are a dark headphone, a little more than my taste, but after listening to them all night, I got used to them and now sound fun but not overly dark... Now I'm really wondering for their flagship rolleyes.gif. Since I wanted to get SE215s but apparently they are not so over-performing. Would you say Ety's HF5 are the best buy for $100??

Yes JVC really has been turning out some good products as of late. And their new flagship got some really favorable comments from Amos (Currawong).

I don't have those ety's to comment on the value for $100.

Thanks for the info, and happy new year to you and all the Head-Fi Community! I've only been here for a couple of months and I feel right at home.

 

What IEMs for around $100 you've heard and really liked?

 

I'm currently taking a look at the Rockit R-50

post #231 of 242

anyone around here knows a headphone similar to the s500 in both portability and sound, but with only single sided cable and better soundstage?

 

btw: my uptowns have nowhere near the bass quantity the s500 has...

What a nice thread! Better add the somics too, and please don't let this thread die

Only if you want to strangle yourself with the cable!

 

Sorry, just kidding.. kinda. I don't know anything about the cx200's. The mh1c's are very nice sounding iem's for the price (mids are a bit recessed for me personally), but it is the cable that stops me from touching them.

Thank you, because of this thread I bought Sony MH1C (for 60 buck in my country) and it sounds incredibly beautiful. To level Philips 3590 can't equal (yeah I bought 3590 too because of this thread).

Very all rounded, tunable to every EQ settings, just sound the way you want, distort free and sound powerful. I use it behind the neck and really enjoy it so far biggrin.gif

I would like toshow you guys the incredible, fantastical, and quite moddible HD 439'sdt880smile.png

HD_439_new.jpg

these headphones are fantasticly fun when tuned because you get a signature sennheiser laidback sound sig. plus a great amount of bass that extends with a nice punchy force and they are incredibly light and comfy, these in my opinion compete with the headphones like the qc-2's hd 558's and a couple others I seem to forget

RE-400's, without a doubt.

They're over $200 now... are they still worth considering?

Oh woops, I could have sworn I quoted a post. 

 

I meant the TF10s are now over $200s. 

 

They used to be around the $150s.
