Recommendation for under $50 IEM

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 

Still trying to find a good IEM with an analytic sound that is comfortable enough to wear for hours at a time.  Prices have been fluctuating a lot since November, so I can't rely strictly on the great multi-IEM reviews by Joker and ClieOS. 

 

There has got to be a few good IEMs with non-fatiguing sound under $50 US!  I don't need superior sound quality since I'm working with these on and can't really enjoy the total sound effect (and I have some good over ear and IEMs for home for that).

 

My Philips SHE3590's are loaned out so I'd like to get something for everyday use.  Any recommendations out there?

Source?, Music Taste, Etc?  Reason being I'm blowing out some as NEW IEMS in the for sale forum.  Not trying to pimp my sale, just letting you know if you see anything that intest's you?

Source is usually iPod touch or android phone. Sometimes my old cowan u3 mp3 player for flac files. Looking for less bass heavy and more clarity. I listen to jazz like old Stan Getz and mellow side of John Coltrane plus classical, especially baroque chamber music. Some vocal stuff ranging from Pink Floyd to Coldplay to Joni Mitchell, but jazz and classical are my go-to styles for the office.

Thanks!

You can order with it being out of stock, they will ship it very soon after. I ordered when it was out of stock and it shipped 4 days later, actually only 2 business days later.

Yeah RE0 is best under $50 for an analytic sound I think.

when i saw they were out of stock for some reason I figured that meant "discontinued" and i went with something else. i'll have to remember that next time.

I know they don't have the reputation of the R50's, but how would the Mee M6's compare? These are running around $25-$30 which would better for my budget...
