Help with IEMs to pair with Cowon D2 and FiiO E17

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Greets from snowy Russia, folks.

 

I need your help in choosing IEMs under $300 (shipped) for my Cowon D2 and FiiO E17. Seacrch conditions are as follows:

 

1. Not-colored or low-colored super high-detail sound. 

2. Solid contruction and strong cable.

3. High impendance(?). Since I'm going to use it with an amp, low impendance IEMs would perform worse. Right?

4. It may be shipped to Russia.

 

Mainly, I listen to the instrumental music of a very wide range: from salsa thru progressive rock to brutal death but I also like some electronic bands.

 

Thanks in advance.

 

PS: I understand that it's always better to listen to acoustics and choose it basing on what you like but there is no place in my town where I can listen to/buy something except Etymotics mc5/hf3 (btw, do these meet my conditions?).

Bought RE-0 for $49 at their site just to try. I am still open for your suggestions though. I do not think RE-0 will live long. Lol.

The Etymotic ER4S, Westone UM3X, PFE232, Sony EX1000, Grado GR10 and EQ-7 are pretty good sounding and some are high impedance IEMs, they all improve further with AMPs help.
