need help with first iem's

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

I'm a new member and researched my first higher quality headphones here and bought Shure SRH840 couple months ago and really like their sound signature - I had Koss PortaPro which I've had for about a year before the Shures

I'm not a basshead - I like the mids and highs - and really like the sound stage of the 840's

So my next step is getting iem's

I'm looking for a pair that have the same or very similar sound like the 840's

Like I said I really like the sound stage of the 840's and would like the iem's to be as good

I listen to just about every type of music but lean towards classic rock/pop (70's), old time country and modern country

The iem's will be used mostly while sitting or walking - no excercising with them

They will be connected to my smartphone

I'm looking for something in the $100-200 range - would probably buy used to get better ones

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated

Thanks

Gord

Large stage, all-rounder - GR07/BA200 sounds like the ticket. Great stage size on both, imaging is a strength on the VSonics while the TDKs lay everything out very 3-dimensionally. The entire sound on the BA200s are especially cohesive and smooth, very smooth. Something like the RE262/PFE122/W2s would be more similar to the SRH840 though. Stage is not as large as the other two though.
