very useful thread, thanks man
ive checked a couple of $150 budget (my current budget) threads and mostly all replies tend to name iems like gr07, r50, dba02, re262, fxt90, etc. but none of them had in mind tf10s can be gotten for a couple extra bucks, which i think would be a better choice right ?
Easy, for open, Grado SR80 ($100) For closed, Ultrasone HiFi 580 ($120).
Sennheiser, Denon, all the other brands you read about on here make great phones, but for the low price range, I think these 2 companies really excel.
That said, every ear is different.
I was going to ask about these (I'm considering them) because their frequency response is very close to the 598s (558 vs 598). And then with the removing the foam mod gets even closer to the 598. Seems like a top value for open phones at under $200.
