Recommendations for a fun IEM with prominent bass and lush mids for small ears?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Hey everyone, I'm looking for a new pair of IEMs. I currently have the Fischer Audio Eternas, which sound great, but get uncomfortable after an hour or two of use. The Eternas are simply too big for my ears.

 

I'd like something that will fit my ears well while having a similar sound signature to the Eterna (strong bass, thick lush mids, smooth highs, engaging soundstage). I'd prefer to spend $60 or under. The DUNU Tridents seem to have the sound I'm looking for, but are large like the Eternas, so I'm worried about the fit.

 

I appreciate any recommendations in my price range. Thanks!

If you could stretch the budget to 95 you could get the xb90ex - they have exactly what you are looking for. and despite its size, the ingenious design allows for really good fit. or you could get tjhe JVC fx3x - they say it has really good mids...

Unfortunately I can't stretch the budget. The JVCs are interesting, but reviews indicate that the highs are sharp, which I can't handle for very long. I look more into them though, thanks.
