It's come to my attention that I may not actually be looking in the correct section for my 'perfect' headphones.
In other words, IEM vs Full-sized
I've went through a few cans that I initially liked, but after a little bit of listening, I feel have lost their luster.
Sennheiser HD280 Pro
Beyerdynamic Custom One Pro
Beyerdynamic DT770 Pro 80
Audio Technica ATH-M30 (I still do like these, but they seem to fail in comparison of similarly priced IEMs)
Now, I've had the Monoprice 8320 for a few months, and I still love them. I think they sound even better than the M30.
But, I've also thought that I may just be trying the wrong full-sized headphones. I'm looking for balanced sound. The only one that really sounded balanced to me was the M30.
I've not had too much experience with IEMs outside of $40 (none at all actually), so I can't really compare the sounds all too well.
I personally think IEMs are much more comfortable than full-sized headphones.
Anyways... ONTO my actual 'requirements'
I listen to a lot of electronic music, but my music tastes are basically everywhere.
I want a balanced sound. No bass emphasis.
I'd like it to be detailed.
Must be portable.
Detachable cable is a huge plus (I understand IEMs don't often have those, so I'm mainly referring to full-sized ones here, but detachable cable IEM would be great)
Soundstage is somewhat important. I can't stand things with no soundstage. (I think the 8323 has a very good soundstage, just for a reference point. It could be more depthy though)
Budget is around $200.
Can only buy from Amazon
I've been told that the KRK KNS 8400 would be a good fit for me
I've also been looking at the VSonic GR07 (And 06 for something cheaper). I LOVE the tons of tips included.
Help me out here, please :)
