IEM Headphone Advice

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Hi All.  Had a good look round but thought it would be better to start my own thread and see what responses I get.

 

Current using using my portable media via my Nano Ipod while at the Gym and my Samsung Galaxy S2 while getting from A to B, usually walking or on the bus or sitting at my desk at work.

 

I was using Sennheiser IE6 Headphones for this for the past year & upgraded to ear buds with the memory foam ones to isolate a bit more noise and make it a bit more comfortable.  Recently had to send these back as one of the ear's stopped working & as there within the warranty period I got the money back for them.

 

So now you have the back story I was thinking of putting a bit more cash to get some really decent ones & buy an extended warranty to make sure I can replace them if they fail on me also, so looking in the £100-£140 price range.  Was looking at the Bang and Olufsen C5's (which is pushing the budget a bit!) but seems you guys don't like these.  I basically need a headphone that's versatile all round and made for everything.  I need it to be able to stay in comfortably while working out with weights, running and generally moving about, while also having a good quality sound and can be worn day to day.

 

Any suggestions?

 

Let me know if you want any more info on my needs.

If you want something fun and bassy, you could consider the Shure SE 215. Bit under budget at £79 though.

Been doing a bit of research and what's peoples thoughts on the SE 215 vs the SE 315?  Doesn't seem to be too much but I will also be listening to these for about 2-3 hours a day so want to know I've made the right choice before committing but £50 more does seem like quite a heafty price tag to no upgrade?

Inner Fidelity do a great group review of the shure SE range http://www.innerfidelity.com/content/shure-ear-series-se215-se315-se425-and-se535-page-2

 

Figured the 215s would be better for you as they have much better bass than the the 315s.
