Forgive me i know this is an overkilled topic but i'm afraid i have to bring it up in yet another similar thread because from all the threads i've read, I somehow drift further and further from a decision. Okay so i'm making a huge investment upgrade from my current senn IE8. So i really want to get this right, without any regrets if possible. I hear the Shure SE535s are really good, might best all the above but those are the most expensive i believe.. ($$ :/) So I've narrowed it down to those 3 IEs listed on title.
Now that the TF10s are no longer in production (But still in sale?), the next in line is the UE900 i believe? I listen to (from most listened to least):
- Acoustic music
- Country music
- Typical pop and alternative
- R&B, Blues / Soul
- Experimental and ambient music like geotic and sigur ros
- Classical (bach/tchaikovsky to epic music like 2 steps from hell) AND opera (like pavarotti)
Not much or rock or metal or with very heavy percussion. Lots of strings and piano. From these genres, what would you guys recommend? Especially if you guys have the same music tastes as i do.
I listen most often when i'm on the move which averages about 3+ hours a day in commuting environments. And noting that UM3X is significantly the cheaper one. Could anyone who owns and have tried all 3 comment and give me any advice?
On a side note, if anyone could comment on earsonic sm3v2 that would be great too. I hear great reviews about this piece but the reason why its not in the 3 choices is because my country does not have any distributors. But i could always look to amazon, earphonesolutions.
So thank you all in advance for your comments! I really appreciate it!
