Recommendations For Better Headphone of Sony MDR EX-50

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

This is my first post on this forum so if I did something wrong please let me know, thank you!

 

Ok so right now I have a pair of Sony MDR-EX50's and I've been looking around for in-ears that will be able to surpass these headphones without sacrifising my dollars. I am willing to spend no more than 50$ and my preference for sound is that it should have/be:

- A balanced level of sound, volume and quality throughout entire range (Highs, mids, lows)

- A lot more bass (I find the bass in these Sony's to be lacking quite a bit compared to my friends Sennheiser CX150's which are half the price of my headphones now)

- A comfortable fit and not too bulky

- Noise cancellation if possible

- Durable

- Decent microphonics and accessories

 

I enjoy listening to various types of Electronic music (ex. DnB, Trance, House, Ambient) so thats why I want in-ears which will provide a very clear tone.

I'm positive I could have got much better IEM's for 30$ so thats why I need suggestions to the best IEM's I can get for under 50$.

If you are in the US, Best Buy had/has the Sony XBA 1 Balanced Armature for $34-$36 on clearance for the past several months. It does well with dance music and for that price it was a steal.

 

I dont know if its worth driving around now, since it might all be gone by now.

I live in Canada so I won't be able to get that. It costs about $110 dollars here...

How are the TDK Mt-300's which are 5$ compared to the Sony's I have now?

If my choices are too specific, I just want opinions of which is the best overall IEM for under 50$ canadian

I think I have a choice... They are 50% off and amazing bass apparently, so I think I'll be going with this one for Chirstmas.
