Hey guys, I am a beginner audiophile and don't know much about IEM's. I recently purchased a pair of Sennheiser HD598's for $249.99 from Crutchfield which came with a $100 giftcard.
I am looking at their selection of IEM's and would really like to choose one for ~$100. The type of music I listen to ranges from EDM to instrumentals, vocal-based acoustics, and pop.
ClarityOne™ EB 110 $74.99
Harman Kardon NI $99.99
Klipsch Image S4i II $99.99
AKG K375 $119.99
I would really enjoy having a durable pair of headphones that are comfortable and will last more than a few years. If you guys could help me limit my options or let me know which pair's of IEMS I should stay away from, I would highly appreciate it!
Also, I currently own an Asus Xonar DG and as I am waiting for my 598's to come, I have been doing a lot of reading on amps and was wondering if I should consider using my giftcard on Crutchfield's NuForce uDAC-2 , but I've also read on this forum that I should stay away from Nuforce's amps. (The amp would be primarily for my HD 598's) The reason why I chose that amp is because it is the only headphone amp they have at the ~$100 price range.
Thank you for taking the time to help me out!
