Need help to decide on which monoprice earbuds and/or headphones to purchase

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Hello everyone. After browsing monoprice.com and looking at their lineup of headphones and earphones, I bought myself a pair of the infamous 8320's. Needless to say, the mids and highs were beautiful. The bass....I'm not a bass head, but dang there's so much missing from these.

 

So, I gave those to my brother(who is very happy with them) and I am back on my new hunt for headphones/IEMs. Since my purchase of the 8320's, I notice plenty of new lineups on monoprice:

 

IEMs

Headphones:

 

9387(Black)/9388(Black and Red)[Bluetooth]:

9389(Bluetooth):

So these are all the new phones I've seen on monoprice. They all look wonderful. Those bluetooth headphones really look cool. I've been wanting to get wireless phones since you know, the lack of needing a cable.  The new IEMs they have, I don't know which one to get. Has anyone here gotten any one of the phones listed above? If so, please give me some feedback, how they sound, build quality, etc. They all look so nice.

 

I am purely looking at these as a portable solution. I already have a pair of headphones to use for my computer. I probably want to get a pair of the bluetooth phones, AND one of the new IEMs they have.

I would go with these out of the 3... Not much to base the opinion off of, but I would stay away from 'gaming' IEM's...

Any update OP? I myself love the 8320's, but yeah they do lack bass. Luckily I got bass-boost which helps on my phone. But then on my other devices that don't have bass-boost, it lacks of course..

 

I have TF10's, BUT also which I could find some really cheap ones that could compare in terms of bass.
