I have two pairs of over the ear cans, the Denon D-2000 and hte Shure 840 PRO (use for audio mixing and mastering). I love the sound of both but tend to grab the Denon's when listening for fun. The problem is that both of these sets take a lot of room when traveling so I wanted to get a pair of IEM's, hopefully something comfortable that can match the sound of the Denon's.
To that end I ordered a pair of Denon AH-C300 IEM's. They are HUGE, which would be ok but I am not sure that I really love the sound. They have a lot of bass, but I don't think I would call it great. I much prefer the bass from my full size Denon's, although having very little experience with IEM's I maybe expecting to much?
I am on the fence and am close to returning the Urban Ravers to try something else. One thing that disappointed me was the lack of a replaceable cord on the Denon's so I have been looking at IEM's that have this feature. Some of the brands that I am considering are the Shure's and Westones (these may be to bass light?). I also like the looks of the B=W C5's and have heard good things about the TDK's.
I would like to stay in the 200-250 range if I can. I love my music and want it to sound it's best.
I like a lot of the rock classics as well as some jazz and classical. Love great guitar playing and sounds. I appreciate some bump to the thump too but overall clarity and separation combined with a non-fatiguing sound and a "fun" sound signature is my goal.
