i unfortunately lost my Sennheiser IE8 with custom earpads yesterday. I feel very sad right now.
Since i was really happy with it i am considering to buy the same ones again. But they where expensive since i wasn't happy with the original pads. Until i have a new pair of in ears i use my old SE 315 which has a slack joint (i guess even multiples).
As i mentioned before i really used to love the Sennheisers but why not upgrade in a case like that?
What i loved or not with my previous headphones:
Pro: Since it was my first "audiophile" headphone i was pretty impressed with it. Good for sports. Edit: Good isolation.
Cons: Poor bass and soundstage, heavy
Pro: Soundstage, Bass
Cons: Very poor isolation, Wind noise because of the sharp edges when windy weather or riding the bicycle.
I would love to have a headphone which can keep all the good points of the previous ones but can solve the drawbacks. Sports (wind influences) is not that important, since i can still use my SE315 for sports.
My music preferences are i different genres. See my last.fm library: http://www.last.fm/user/amilopowers/library
I would say: Electronic, Rock, Indie Pop/Rock and some rap (not really important)
I thought about these units (not closing i am open for recommendations i don't know yet):
- Phonak Audéo PFE 232
- Shure SE535
- Sennheiser IE8
- Edit: Ultimate Ears UE900
- your recommendation?
It has to be driven by an iPhone 5!
I hope you can help me to find the best IEM. Every advice is appreciated!
