Hello everybody. =)
I was looking for some IEM to plug into my Nexus S to listen to Music when I'm away from home.
I found in a site some used but in good condition Sennheiser IE8 at 130€, about 173$ (american dollars). Are they worth it?
I found the offer to be quite good, but I don't know if the sound of these match my taste.
I am mainly a mid and high lover. I really like bass too when it's punchy, but I don't like when bass overwhelm the rest of the spectrum.
I may even evaluate some other options, but what I found is way too much high priced for my pockets. (I'm still a kind of "student" and I've got to make it with christmas's savings.) For example, I think I kind of liked the Shure SE535, but I don't know where to find 350€. xDD
At the moment I am listening to Music at home with my pc linked with the Fiio E17 plugged to my Creative Aurvana Live!, and I'm quite satisfied of this combo, but using the same headphones "on the road" they sound way worse, with low volume and extremely distant and confused sound, not to mention that they are a lot uncomfortable to wear to the neck.
Anyone knows how are the highs of the IE8? For example, how the Violins sound? The vendor told me he had used them for about 200 hours (He said that he let them "burned in", but I think he was using them during that time.) I mainly listen to Synthpop, Rock, Ambient, Pop, Folk, Symphonic and Power Metal and eventually even instrumental Music of various genres (ex. Soundtracks).
I am quite esigent when it's about audio quality, like many of you. Do you think that they would work for me?
Waiting for some replies, I thank you in advance and I salute you.
