Looking for In-ear-monitor $100 or under

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I currently have Klipsch s4 headphones, and think I am ready to upgrade in my music world to something a bit better, although I love them.
I really like bass, but I also like clarity, and don't want so much bass that the audio sounds distorted, if you know what I mean. Isolation is also important. While I realize I can't get everything I'm asking for, my priorities if I had to rank them are 1. Bass 2. Isolation and 3. Some Clarity
I am looking for something $100 or less. What do you recommend?

Sony XB90EX. gives you as much bass as one would want from an iem without any distortion or bloat:) doesn't bleed into mids. really good sound overall...

I'm taking advantage of a good BF deal to upgrade to the HiFiMan RE-262s from my S4i's. they're on sale for $99--marked down from $149.

The RE-262 is ver highly regarded on head-fi.

good choice. no doubt it will be even better in regards of clarity, mids and highs, but I'm pretty sure it won't have as much bass as sony :) should be sufficient though...

Right. I'm expecting that the RE-262 will be more restrained than the S4i as far as bass. The S4i is a little thumpy for me, so if you want something with as much or more bass, the RE-262 may not be ideal. It's just such a good deal right now, but definitely not a basshead IEM like the Sony.
