The Sony EX310, JVC FXC50, Philips HSE9850 and Panasonic HJE450 are great buy under this budget but if you little over then RE0 are fantastic for the price and they compete well with very highend IEMs.post #3 of 1411/2/12 at 8:11ampost #4 of 1411/2/12 at 8:17amThread Starterpost #5 of 1411/2/12 at 8:21am
The Head-Direct has sale offer only $49 (wow) and it's steal for that price compare to performance.

A seller on Amazon has some Monoprice 8320 http://www.amazon.co.uk/Monoprice-Enhanced-Hi-Fi-Isolating-Earphones/dp/B007VEQ2UU/ref=sr_1_cc_1?s=aps&ie=UTF8&qid=1351881411&sr=1-1-catcorr
Waiting for 2 sets for them at the moment.

we"ll let you be the judge of that.
for an even better trick.
don't tell your friend the cost. after he hears them, ask him how much he thinks they cost.
come tell uspost #13 of 1411/10/12 at 10:38am
And recommend him to swap his MP3's with flac. I just swaped all my 128 and 192 kbps MP3 with flac. With my stock IEM, there isn't much difference, but MH1 show it's true potential on flac. Great instrument separation and soundstage...post #14 of 1412/15/12 at 9:02amQuote:
Nope, I do not think that really happens with the MH1c unless you have an amp in the chain ..in which case I think your stock IEM might also show 'some' differenceReturn HomeBack to Forum: Portable Headphones, Earphones and In-Ear Monitors
