I am looking for an IEM with good dynamic range, and decent bass, treble and soundstage in that order of priority. My budget is limited to 90 USD for now. I'm guessing BA IEMs can offer a good dynamic range as they're quick, but then bass impact/quantity becomes a concern with most. Isolation is not so much of an issue for me. Based on the information here at head-fi, I've narrowed down my choices to the following :
1. Audio Technica ATH-CKM500
2. Ultimate ears super fi 5 / UE 600
3. Yamaha EPH-100 (are well over 90 USD, so I'll wait if I can find a good deal)
4. JVC HA-FXD80
5. Hisoundaudio crystal (again a tad over 90 USD)
6. Vsonic GR06
The bass on my ECCI PR401 seems adequate to me. If I had to pick between a warm and cold IEM with similar performance in other departments, I'd prefer the cold one (to compliment my full size HD 558). Most of my headphone time is devoted to classic rock, metal and some jazz/pop.
Looking forward to your suggestions!
