Well, here's my dilemma. I am a hip-hop producer, i make instrumentals. So headphones are a big deal for me. My problem is that i have 3 pair of bassy iem's (kicker EB141, Xears TD4, ATH-CKS77), and in need of something more along the lines of neutral for mixing and mastering. I dont really want over the ear cans for opinionated reasons, so IEM's are my thing.
I've narrowed it down to Etymotic HF5 and Fischer Audio DBA-02. Which would you head-fi'ers rcommend? Isolaton isnt a deal breaker, but it would be nice (obviously the Ety's would be a better choice for isolating needs).
Thanks for any and all replies. Also, if there is a better set (preferrably under $175) feel free to suggest that as well.
