I"m trying to build a good portable setup, and am looking for IEMs that will work well with an iPod. I have an iPod classic and have swapped out the drive with a 250GB drive that I have loaded with lossless audio. I"m wanting the best sound I can get driven directly from an iPod, not looking to carry around an amp, not even something small like the CMOY designs.
I currently have a pair of PSB M4U2 headphones that I drive from the iPod and they sound SUPERB, but I need something more portable and a little less obvious for here at work. I've looked through the large IEM comparison thread, but have a more targeted question here and am hoping someone can help me out.
So here's what I'm looking for:
- In-ear (I know there's different types, I just need something small that fits in the ear)
- Can be driven directly by an iPod
- iPod controls
- $300 or less
I actually really like the new earPods that came with my new iPhone in terms of how they fit, I like the fact that they sorta just sit in the ear vs having to be crammed inside the ear. The sound is good, but I"m willing to spend more to get better sound, and if there was another headphone out there with that kind of design that would be ideal.
Any help is appreciated.
