I would appreciate some recommendations on excellent IEMs for mostly female vocal records. Most of the songs I listen to are of the Pop, Rock, Acoustic, Country, Singer-Songwriter, Asian Pop, Ballads genres.
I'm quite new to the audiophile world and the only fairly decent IEM I own is a Klipsch Reference S4, which was a gift from a relative. I have tried the Klipsch Custom 3's though so that's the only extent I have of trying out a higher tier IEM. I don't know much about the technicalities but I want to get an upgrade to my Reference S4's as the cables are already on the verge of giving out.
I'm not a big fan of heavy bass but some decent amount would be good. I would prefer clear vocals, a good soundstage, instrumental separation, and the like. Basically, in layman's terms, a pair of IEMs that would give an audio equivalent of watching a 3D film. Sorry for that term, I don't know how to phrase it better. I want to feel like I'm in the recording studio or watching a live performance, and be able to hear all the distinct sounds that I'm not able to hear on my S4's.
So far the only ones I can get my hands on are the Westone 2, Westone UM2, UE triple.fi 10's and other cheaper UE variants, Brainwavz B2, and some Shure models. My budget is only up to this range so I would appreciate it if someone could help determine what would be a better fit based on my listening preference.
