Looking for an upgrade from Nuforce NE-700M

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Hey guys, I wonder if you could help me.

 

My NE-700M broke for the second time in less than a year and I'm fed up. Plus I've been thinking about upgrading them anyway.

So I'm looking to buy new in-ear monitors to have on-the-go and I want an upgrade sound-wise.

Regarding the budget - I'm willing to pay even twice the price of the NE-700 if that buys me earphones with a sound I love and ones that don't break after just a few months.

 

Things to preserve:

- Bass response. The NE-700 had really good, deep bass. A little accentuated but it was in good taste and nice quality.

- Stage. They had nice stage width-wise. Not so much depth, it would be nice to improve on that.

 

Things to improve:

- Durability. I want phones that would last!

- Sound, with emphasis on the mids. The NE-700's sound was a little dry and it lacked sparkle. I'm a bit of a Grado fan so that can give you an idea about the kind of sound I like.

 

Got anything to recommend?

 

Appreciate the help!

For around 130 dollars, I would recommend any of the following:

  • Phonak PFE0xx + black filters
  • Dunu Tai Chi
  • ThinkSound TS02
  • ThinkSound MS01

Thanks tinyman!

 

Any more recommendations?

By the way, I really don't need a mic, I got the NE-700M only because they didn't have the NE-700X at the time.
