IEMs for my girlfriend (yes yes, another recommendation thread)

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

Hey all, 

I would never usually start a recommendation thread, but.. Here I am.

My girlfriend is looking for some IEMs. 

So far, she has tried the Westone 3, Thinksound MS01 and the HiSoundAudio W2.

She liked the MS01's sonic signature, loved the HiSoundAudio, but both have a very wide nozzle, and it's uncomfortable for her ears.

The Westones were good, but none of the tips were small enough, so we have some tiny little compy tips on order for her..

She still prefers the sonic signature of the HiSoundAudios.

My basic question to you is:

 

What do we look to next?

Westone UM1 with comply tips?

Possibly Klipsch X10 if you can find a pair would be one to consider. They would have a similar signature to Hisound W2 but personally better detail and clarity though still hold a nice bassy sound. There's some on eBay atm, they also have a small nozzle and the smallest tips are pretty tiny.

The Grado GR8, GR10, Yamaha EPH100, Philips S2, Sony XBA3, Klipsch X10 and GR07(amazing sound for the price and they fit great because moving nozzel adjust better) willbe better sounding yet still good price but If don't mind the cold soundsignature then Etymotic HF5 and ER4P/S are amazing for details.

Thanks guys, much appreciated. 

 

My local supplier seems to only stock the S4 (Not the X10). I prefer to go this supplier, because they let me audition everything before I buy.

Big difference?

Only the difference between girlfriend (x10) and ex-girlfriend (s4)!

The X10 are much better sounding than S4 with better clarity, bass.

The S4 are considered quite poor by some, and average by others. I would probably just jump to the X10.
