I'm serious here, I'm trying to determine which IEM's would suite my musical tastes (Thrash Metal) from IEM reviews.
I know that, ultimately, its me that has to shortlist from the 100's of IEM's available rather than asking in the forums.
What I really want to know is what I might need to look for in terms of sound definition (forward Mids, Extended Highs etc) so I'm hoping some of you can come up with some suggestions, please, before I make another really expensive mistake.
What I'm after:
In my music, the male singers voice and the electric guitar (ranges between a low tone and a higher sounding one; think low Korn guitars to higher sounding Guns 'n Roses stuff) are the two things I listen for most. For drums and bass guitars, I like punchy bass but I detest it when its overpowering and overpowers the singer and the guitarists.
I owned an RE262 before it broke and loved it, but there was very very little bass (might not have been a bad thing!) yet it seemed to cope really well with fast thrash metal. Currently I do not like the UM3X which I own now as the bass is often overpowering and the singers and guitarists seem like they have been pushed to the back of the stage. Ive seen the description of a blanket being put over the singer and guitarists and I think that sums it up well for the UM3X. Drums in the UM3X do however sound great. I think its just the bass guitar can really mess things up with that IEM, making the music sound like a big soup and I cant tell whats going on.
Please give me some idea of terminology which I might be seeking!
