My SE425's got run over by a bus today...new IEM?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

So as per the title, my "proper"(ish) IEM's got run over by a bus and I need a replacement pair preferably for under £100 that is available in the UK.

In terms of sound, I like my IEM's detailed with a slight mid bump. Sibilence is a nono.

 

Nothing extravagant, these are to tide me over until I get a pair of customs.

Perhaps the Brainwavz M2.  They are mid-centric and sound really good for the price.  You can see the graphs over at Innerfidelity in the IEM section.

 

I like mine with a pair of Comply T-400 foam tips as the outer diameter of the shell can be a tad painful.

 

Total cost with tips was $100 or less.

If you're already used to Shure sound, maybe you should try the SE215.

Except that the shure215 is a dynamic driver so that the sound will probably be different!  When you say run over, do they still work?  Was just wondering as £130 could get them reshelled with the likes of inearz or you could try the pure from Swedens Cosmic ears at £65 for a budget custom.

JVC FXD80, GR07, Yamaha EPH100, Sony EX600, Harmen Kardon AE and Klipsch image X5 are great and few like GR07, EX600, X5 can easily rival to SE425 in term of sound quality.

I already have a pair of SE215's for rough use(gym, running, etc). Love them, but just not quite up to the SE425.

I'll see if I can find anywhere to demo them nearby, the Brainwavz is a little difficult to source in the UK.

 

Thanks for the suggestions guys.
