I'm sure u get comparison to the beats by dre a lot so one more time couldn't hurt...
I'm searching for in ear headphones around 50$ with a quality better or equal to the beats by dre tour edition.
Thanks for the help!
Better quality? Most people here would argue that something flat would be better quality, but since it will have a lot less bass, you may not like a flat sound.
Do you want more bass? Better construciton? More clarity?
Describe how you would like an IEM (In-Ear-Monitor, or earphone,) to sound in order of preferences, and we can help you from there. Or, search the forum for bass heavy IEM, better than Beats Tours, etc.
The best thing for you is probably to search through the huge IEM review by ljokerl:
OMG there IS a vent on top, how did you see that? I thought it was a manufacturing defect
If you are a musician, and will stretch your budget further (100$), then you can go get the etymotic HF5. They are made to sound very true to life and very flat in frequency. It must be worth it, if you like your music that much
But you might be shocked, if you are used to the kind of sound the beats produces. Their bass response are VERY exaggerated, and nothing like the true sound of say a live performance.
Ofc if you just want to enjoy your music... then there might be something better for you. But I like the hf5, and sq wise they compare to many more expensive headphones. Also they offer the best doucumented noice isolation for any earphone. That can be both good and bad, depending on what you use them for, but for trains and flights they are perfect.
EDIT: Also, you must remember that these headphones are in a different league than the beats. I won't say you can compare, they beat the beats (pun intended?) by several lengths. They were my first head-fi purchase.
