Itching to buy something

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

I should probably just go to sleep, but I've got the itch to blow around ~$75 on a pair of IEMs.  I have the following IEMs already

 

Phillips SHE3580

ATH-CK55s

JVC HAFX101

Monoprice 8320

 

Sony MDR-7506's while at work.

 

Prerequisites

1. Must have a mic

2. Must have great mids and highs, w/o giving up the bottom.

From all that I've heard lately, I think that the RHA MA450i is close to what you're looking for.

I will highly recommend to try more balanced RE0, RE_ZERO, HF3, UE 700.

The UE700 isn't bad a choice at all.  I've been trying it out over the past couple of days.  But given his current line-up, I'm not sure he would consider the low end to be weighty enough IMO.

Agree with MA450i, but beware of microphonics. Ok if worn over ear apparently.

also the meelec a161p is a good contender.

Yup, I agree.  For me, I have to wear them over ear AND use the cable cinch to adequately control the microphonics... but worth the uncool factor IMO.  biggrin.gif
