Hey all, I'm looking for some express advice here, as I am buying my first IEM's tomorrow. I am choosing between Monster Jamz, Monster Turbine, Monster Turbine Pro Gold or Monster Turbine Pro Copper.
These are the prices I am buying at:
Jamz: $27.00 (+control talk)
My situation is, I want a good pair of IEM's to listen to while I play poker. I have a fiio e17 dac surprisingly, which I have not used but can try out with my ipod. I like bass heavy music mostly.
If the Jamz will do a good job, saving the extra money will make sense. I'm not against buying the most expensive of the models, though only the jamz are offered to me with control talk. What would you do?
Am I really getting my money's worth on spending the $213? That's like 10x the price of the Jamz and the refinements may be lost on me.
Again, this is my first IEM and am just looking for some quick advice. My head has been spinning with all the differing review and opinions I am hoping for some finality here :)
If you love saving money but equally love having the best, how can you decide?
Two outcomes that will make me a satisfied buyer:
A) Buying the $27.00 Jamz and realizing the sound is good and I just saved $200.
B) Buying the copper and realizing the sound is orgasmic and other people around me need to take off their cheap IEM's and check out mine.
Whichever of the two above scenarios seem more realistic, that is where my decision will lie. Which is more realistic all, A or B?
