I've been reading a lot of reviews (including the big comparing thread by joker) and now I am excited about buying a better (or atleast different) IEM.
I could be described as a Basshead, but I dont really know what it means. What I can is that almost all the music I listen to is bass-heavy (sometimes bass only haha) and I really love bass, but I dont want to have my mids and highs reduced by it. My turbines do pretty well at this I think, they provide good bass (atleast quantity, for quality I can't really speak I guess, because this are my first ''expensive'' IEM's). But by reading about the Senheisser IE8(0) for example I became curious about how they would sound, how different it would be. Since they are real bass-monsters as I've heard, they will blow out my Turbines at many (if not all) points. But I have a hard time imagining how more bass could not affect the mids and highs.. is it because of the big soundstage?
What I really want to know is: will ( for example) the MTPG, IE8/IE80 and Westone 3 really be an upgrade for the normal Turbines I own now?
(I listed some bass-heavy IEM's because thats definitely the style that will satisfy me the most).
And if they improve bass, will it be more quality or quantity (or both), and (how) will the mids and highs improve?
In Joker's big thread he pays a lot of attention to isolation, and I think this a very important point for IEM's, but since 75% of the time I use my IEM's I am in quiet area's (like in bed at night) this isn't be a very big point to me.
If you are used to normal earbuds (like apple's) I can imagine that hearing my Turbines could be jawdropper.
If I switch from turbines to IEM's in the price range of the MTPG, IE80 or FX700 for example, will I experience music at a total new level too? Or is it about improving details?
I am very thankful in advance if someone would take the time to answer my questions!
p.s. English is not my foreign language so I'm sorry for the mistakes. I hope my questions are clear to you, if they aren't, feel free to ask for more details!
