IEM for iphone low/mid range prices

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 

Im considering buying my first pair of (hopefully) good sounding and insolating IEM. However, Im dont know that much about what is good and what is not.. 

 

Im primarily going to use them with my iPhone without external amp (as dont have such), so they need to pretty easy driven I guess - low impedance right??...

Anyways, my budget is probably going to something like 150-200 $, however as I live in Denmark and electronics tends to be pretty pricy here compared to the US then the 200 is the upper limit, however if they will be substancially better then please recommed I would really like a nice pair of IEM. 

 

I been myself looking a bit around and found three pairs that might be good..? 

1. Shure SE215

2. UE 600

3. Westone UM1

Do you have any pros or cons considering these or maybe some that are even better...?

 

Hope the forum can help me as i would really like to some good sounding phones.

The SE215 are pretty good sounding for the price but i will recommend to buy highend IEMs from this forum under this price range like GR07, UE TF10Pro, Klipsch Image X10, Sony EX7550.

What kind of sound signature are you looking for within your price range?

Hmm, as im not really into fancy words i've tried to use some of the words from the Describing sound a glossary:

 

I would like them to be:

Full, punchy and warm. Mostly warm I guess...

 

I listen to allot of different genres: classical, house, reagae, R&B, but I guess that if existing a IEM with a tight bass response and elsewise pretty neutral should give a good result. But as I said, Im totally new in this field... 

Hope i helps a bit

I cant give you sound reference, cause these is the best IEM i got, so i will quote what Joker has to say about them.

 

FXD80

Price:  +/ -  $100.00

 

Plenty of bass, good mids and highs, fantastic clarity and detail.


Quote Joker

The FXD80 is one of the better buys in its price range.

SE215 is the way to go... although i wouldnt really call the sound 'warm' but it is punchy. For your price range i would definitely stick with the shures

215's or UE700's, the 700's might be brighter idk I only have the 215's
