Some IEM's/Buds that I have found play well with my Tera:

Klipsch X10 if you like warm SQ.
Etymotic ER4PT if you like neutral
Audeo PFE 232 if you like one of the best.
Yuin PK1 if you like good buds
Blox Aniversary III if you like outstanding buds (and can find a pair)

Modified Koss PortaPro if you like really inexpensive but great sound in a light headphone.

All owned by me and used extensively with my Tera-Player.

TP sounds reasonable good with the Apple ear pods (the one that comes along with iPhone 5).

The "earpods" are new and came out just last year. they're not sold with the ipod classic but with the iPhone, ipod nano and ipod touch.

 

They're much better than the old apple earbuds and a solid buy for $30 or so. More natural sounding, better bass, less thin and less distorted. But they're not refined or detailed like good IEMs in the $70 to $100 range. But they are a respectable pack in for new Apple devices.

Also, bad isolation. Please be aware of this and I don't think it could qualify as IEM as it hangs just half way ion your ears.

oh yeah, the earpod is NOT an IEM. it is an earbud and was designed not to isolate. 

 

As an aside, Apple happens to sell a decent dual driver IEM for around $80. it's OK. a bit thin but detailed, clear sound. but for that price, there are better alternatives out there these days.

better then the x10?

post #25 of 28

you mean the two Apple earphones? Better than the X10? I highly doubt it. (never heard the X10)

good to know,

I would have to say that the X10 is probably one of the most comfortable IEM's that I have owned. The Klipsch oval gels are outstanding. Quite easy to get good seals. I use them on some of my other IEM's as well.

that's one of the reasons i got them.

and the fact that 350$ headphones now costs 100$ with really good reviews
