Help, tried etymotics, full size sennheiser, bose etc

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

Ok so for past two years I've been experimenting a lot. I currently have...

etymotic hf3 iem

etymotic mc3 iem

sennheiser hd202

sennheiser hd239

 

i had bose oe2

 

people rave over the etymotics and I will admit they are phenomenal when it does to clarity and musical representation.  My sennheisers sound good.  The 202 blows away the 239 in Nass, may etoo mush so. Anyway, the sennheiser full size headphones are just too big for many applications. My etymotics of couse are not but to be honest thy just don't cut it for manor sonar listening styles. I need bit more, a more full sound if you will. I'm not looking for bloated bass or anything don't get me wrong, but I do fancy a fuller sound. Any suggestions?  If possible, high sensitivity, good to great isolation, and maybe an iPhone compatible mic would be awesome. Is there a brand or a model I should be looking at?  I'd rather spend less tha. $100 but will go up to say $150ish.  Thanks in advance for your help.

Full sound, works great with many different genres and plays well off of any power source? Yamaha EPH-100.

The RE272, Klipsch X10, X5, GR07 and Yamaha EPH100 willbe great buy under this budget and they sound detailed yet fun to listen with good punchy bass.

No idea about the GR07, but if the RE272 is anything like the RE262 it WILL require good power (ie: an amp) to make it sound good. Klipsch X10 might be the best bang for the buck as to what he is looking for, though be careful as they seem to be pretty darn fragile according to the reviews.

Agreed, but it can be a pain to take one around with you as well as a sound source if you are on the move. I find myself using my amp less and less just because its one more thing to remember to keep charged.
