Ive recently been doing a lot of reading about IEMs' here on these forums and I need some help picking out an IEM that can give me a hint of the audiophile's experience when listening to music. For now I am looking for something in the $30-60 price range, but I plan on working my way up to some of the higher-end IEMs' when I can afford them. I realize that I can't expect much in this price range, but I'm sure they will be better then my sub-$20 pair of earphones.
I have very broad musical taste. I listen to a lot hip-hop and I appreciate good bass. But I also enjoy country, alternative, electronic/trance, and rock genres. So, the bass doesn't need to be the selling point, I'm just looking for something audiophile worthy that may start the addiction.
right now I am looking at:
Brainwave M2 - $50 from amazon
Klipsch Image S4 Enhanced Bass - $50 from amazon
Soundmagic E10 - $35 from amazon
MEElectronics A151 - $60 from amazon
I'm open to other suggestions, but from my research these seem to be the most popular and highest rated in my price range. I need to make a decision soon, Ive been reading for about a week now haha.
