Iem or portable easy to buy in central London ~250 pounds

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 

I listen to mainly Linkin Park, David Guetta, raps,... I need it to be bassy but the mids and highs have to be descent! Sibilance is unacceptable! Isolation has to be above average, comfortable must be better than good (if can equal to the bose ae2 it would e great). Durability has to be great. And the most important thing that's I can find it easily in central London(Oxford street or nearby) i'm considering:

sennheiser momentum

monster dna

monster inspiration anc

denon c300

sennheiser hd380pro

ultimate ears ue 6000

audio technica m50

monster turbine(any version)

bose ie2(although there is no isolation)

sony xb700

sony xb90ex

Get the Momentum.

post #3 of 11

The Denon C300 offers much more bass impact than Bose IEMs with similar design but bigger in size and some cool control features on earpiece and soundquality is crisp clear and very detailed(more detailed than IE8) without extended highs, so it's very punchy in bass region with detailed mids, highs and realy wide soundstage(isolation is average like Bose IEMs). Other IEMs like JVC FXZ200, GR07, Westone 3, UE TF10Pro, FX700 and Sony XBA4 are recommended. The headphones like V-Moda M80+AMPs are highly recommended because it offers tight punchy bass with very detailed mids, highs(not bright or extended). BTW could you tell us about your current setup and which DAPs you will use with IEMs/headphones?.

Momentum and you can pick up at the Apple store in Regent Street, p,us you can try them out. I'd recommend trying the Amperiors as well when you're there. I work round the corner from there.

The momentum sounds a little better, and is far more comfortable.

That depends on your ears / head. I find the Amperiors more comfy and I prefer the sound from them over the Momentum's ...hence why I said try both and decide.

I'd be interested to hear what you bought in the end and your impressions of them.
