When i first bought these IEMs they sounded well balanced and nice, but now they sound very bright and harsh (have been using these very extensively for a week now). I have very sensitive ears and listening these for long will make my ears hurt, which makes me want to upgrade.
By the way i use an iPod touch gen2 as my source and the worst quality i have in my library is mp3 320kbps (most of my library are ALAC), if that info has any relevance with this (could this harshness be the iPods fault?)
So yeah i suppose i'm looking for a new set of IEMs that aren't as bright/harsh, have similar bass or a little less than the SE 215s, have more detail and are more flat. I'm also open for recommendations for open (full sized) headphones with the described sound signature.
(even though this forum is for portable cans, IEMs and such.)
My budget is about 300€, but may be able to stretch a little further than that.
