Best IEMs around 100-200$ ?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Hi, owner of the Focal Spirit One and I appreciate it's sound signature - flat and highly detailed but still with some punch and richness. Now I'm looking for an IEM with a somewhat similar sound in the price range around 100-200$. It is to be used together with an iPod Classic 2009 paired with FiiO E11 and play all kinds of music, from classical to electronica. Any suggestions? Thankful for all response smily_headphones1.gif

Flat, punchy, all-rounder, $100-200 - Definitely the PFE122, GR01, BA200, would fit the ticket. Especially the TDKs for that richness.

The GR07 is pretty close in term of sooundsignature and has somewhat punchy bass, open wide soundstage and overall sound coherent and engaging due to slighht warmth and crispness. The other IEMs like RE272, GR01, R-50, Klipsch image X5 and Sony XB3 are great under this budget with good soundquality.

Some of the suggestions here I think will be somewhat of a disappointment in the bass department.

Don't be fooled about the JVC FXD70 costing $50 on ebay. They are competing with and winning over some of the best in-ears between 100-200 such as the GR07, RE-262, R-50 in overall presentation. Solid bass with nice punch, super clear mids and a very detailed treble, overall balanced presentation with good soundstage and imaging. Not analytical and dry like a single balanced armature R-50, more exciting tone. Then again I though the Spirit One was a bit too flat and bland sounding compared to the Momentum.
