Basically I have really looked around and for right now I can afford to drop $30-40 on some IEMs because my old ones broke. However today I impulse bought some crappy JVC marsh mellows, and it sounded like I was listening to music out side of a house in a tin can... (those will be promptly returned)
Needless to say these super crappy artificial muffled bass ridden IEMs left me scared, and now I am seriously thinking in investing $100 in something that will allow me to hear every instrument and detail. I don't mind something lacking in bass as long as everything is right and proportional. I would like to hear it as if I was in the recording room, but my budget is a little tight, and I would feel bad spending $100, but I really hate hearing things "smeared togather". So I'm really leaning towards the Vsonic GR02 Bass. But how drastic is the detail difference in comparison to the Etymotic HF5? (and can they be bought lower than $100?)
-Thank you in advance, and I hoe this can help someone else!
