OVER-PERFORMING, OVER-ACHIEVING Headphones/IEMs for their price range. Top cost effective cans/IEMS - Page 7

Made edit to my list. Added info to OP.

Must apoligize to SE215 owners. Realized i made a mistake by saying 215 when I meant se210. The graph on headroom clearly shows the 210 is inferior to the 215. So disregard any badmouthing of the 215...😃 To me the 210's sound hideous.

I love my Triple.Fi 10s. There were ok at first but the more I listened, the more I liked them. I certainly think they have what it takes to contend with the IE8s. So much so that I sold my IE8s to my father, which later got stolen in Montreal frown.gif Anyways, they may sound a little unnatural but I think that's what I liked about them, I was listening to electronic music almost exclusively at the time and they did deliver. I continuously describe female vocals as "liquid crystal", so precise yet so smooth and unbelievable. There has never really been a time where I said, I miss my IE8s. I still yearn for customs though.

$100 for the HF5 -- it is regularly sold for that price on Amazon, including right now.

$100 for the Atrio (MG7) -- it is sold for that price on Atrio.me with the CostProg50% coupon code.

 

Two very different, even opposite IEMs. Two excellent deals.

you gotta add the etymotic hf5's. to me they sound almost as detailed as the k701s but with a smaller soundstage, all for 100 usd.

I recently tried the XBA1's and the XBA4's head to head. Don't even mention them in the same breath. The 4's are far superior and I honestly thought the 1's were nothing special, even considering price vs performance...

And then you have people like Inks saying the 1s are the best of the entire XBA line. lol

I have no problem if that is their honest opinion. I would however advise them to have their ears checked and cleaned...

Decided to revive the thread. Re-organized the OP a bit. Added a section that I still need to complete but also added some other very nicely priced overperformers to the list on the OP.

I'm going to be adding links to posts from others that are both informative and stick to the criteria that it doesn't just sound "good" but that it surpasses everything else in it's league and competes with much higher "teir" products for it's price.

Thanx

I dont have high end stuff, just whats in my sig + ath m50. And i completly agree with DOC on the S500. What a wonderful little portable heaphone. I am selling and have sold almost everything inlcuded the M50. The price performance ratio is just insane. The bass is awesome, more foward mids than the M50, the highs are very good, detail and clarity is way better than anything i have.

Again, i dont have high end stuff, but for $75, its my best buy EVER.

Not sure if this has already been listed, but I'm not quite sure why the VSonic GR07 isn't on this list. It's <$200 and can compare with the big boys (example=SE535, IE8, MDR-EX1000), which cost $100+ more than the GR07

Rickdohc I have a bad feeling you are not going to stop harrassing me until I pull the trigger on those FXD80s...
