Need help deciding some high-end iems to buy...

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

I'm still newbie in this audiophile things, so forgive me if I'm a noob

 

There are 5 choices of iem that I'm considering to buy, they are:

- UE TF10 recabled (which cable is still undecided)
- SE530 recabled (which cable is still undecided)
- SE535 stock cable
- IE80 stock cable
- Westone ES3x

 

My SQ priority is bass > mid > high meaning I love deep and controlled bass, I like forward and lush mid and I hate harsh terble (neutral treble hurts my ears, so i need its frequency toned down a bit)

Especially the treble.. I hate the harshness of it because I have very sensitive ears.

 

I like listening to classic, pop and j-pop. I dislike rock and electronic music.

Which one of 5 iems above is perfect choice and best bang of bucks for me?

For Bass I suggest IE80

also FX700 is top notch for classic

I'm looking for used ie80 at the moment..... The 450$ price tag is over my budget

The Denon AH-C300 (highly recommended) are amazing bassheavy IEMs with crisp clear forward mids and highs are not extended as on some other bass heavy IEMs like JVC FX700. The IE80, UE TF10Pro are also very good sounding IEMs with punchy bass, clear mids and clear highs.

Do the IE80 cost 450 US dollar?!  Crazy expensive. My Swedish friend payed about 230 dollar completly new direct from Sennheiser.

230$ for brand new IE80? really? That's a bit suspicious

First he bought them on the internet but the papers was not correct so he contacted sennheiser who said he could buy them from them directly for the same price so he returned the ones without proper documentation. Current price with usd to sek conversion would be about 290 dollar I would belive from a retail store.
