I was extremely happy with my Etymotic HF2 IEMs, but I lost them somewhere... Time for something new. I must emphasize that they must have a mic and controls so I can receive and make calls.
I don't have much experience with headphones, and in lesser extend with IEMs, but I can say that I absolutely loved the HF2s! Excellent clarity, balanced sound, perfect fit, (at least for me), and superb isolation.
Regarding the sound colour/timbre they have a resemblance with my AKG K271mkIIs. So simply said I want some balanced IEMs with an excellent isolation. I don't want an overemphasized bass! However, I also have Grado SR325is headphones which I totally love (but are not balanced), so if there are "Grado-IEMS with mic" I'll be very interested too!
I already made a list with candidates. Thanks a lot for the help in advance!
