Hi there everybody!
Sorry to be the jerk who asks too many questions :(
I recently broke hippo vb that I used to use with the mid plate
Also own ath-m50
Enjoy the sound of the ath m50 and also the hippo’s, the hippo’s no real complaints, maybe a little bulky thus not super conducive to active use, sound was huge bass which was good but im not concerned if the new pair don’t match exactly.
I like natural accurate sound with maybe just a little colour(? Not sure f that’s the right terminology) for when I’m feeling frisky.
Currently will be mostly used with an iPhone 4s so in-line controls is welcomed but not essential (other devices include nexus 7 and MacBook pro) and I don’t own any headphone amplifiers.
Will be used whilst doing just about anything - studying, housework, movies in bed, cycling and listening to different genres mostly hiphop, but not very much of the club sort of hiphop that non hiphop heads think is hiphop. I’m also into just about every other music genre as well
Not sure if the sound is what I’m after and if they are as good as the other two
Ultimate ears triple.fi 10
Found on eBay for around $220 (not sure if that’s a good deal?) which is the very top of my budget
Not sure if I will get enough out of them without using an amp
Not sure how portable they are, like how snugly they fit in your ears or how far they hang out, are they just designed for studio use? – I don’t know
Have they been discontinued?
These seem good and are at a more comfortable price point
Shure SE215LTD enhanced bass
Saw these on amazon for similar price
do they sound just as good?
Is the enhanced bass worth it or does it ruin the rest of the sound?
(Also they come in a cool transparent blue like the triple fi’s)
Sorry for the many questions, I’ve searched for answers but can’t really find specific answers to everything I’m curious about.
Thanks in advance!
