IEM Comparison

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 


I am in the process of trying to find new in-ear headphones. I previously had the Klipsch S4i II's but am tired of them breaking (I am on my 4th replacement pair) and was just going to invest somewhere else. Little did I know there were 100's of options, now I have it narrowed down to a few.


  • Velodyne Vpulse
  • Shure SE215
  • Sony XBA-2 or 3
  • Klipsch x10
  • Logitech TF10
  • Klipsch S4i


Money is a concern and I would like to stay around $100. I mainly listen to rock and dance music, so bass is always a good thing! My final concern is warranty, I have never had a pair of headphones last me longer than 6-8 months. Not because I am too rough with them but the cord always seems to come loose somewhere. (Naturally a replaceable cord would be a nice addition)


I am open to any new suggestions as long as they aren't too expensive, like the TF10s which are a little out of my price range but I might be willing to save up if they are much better.


ANY advice is GREATLY appreciated!!!!!!


Thanks in advance!

Of that lot, the Shure or the Triple Fi 10 would be my picks.  The Shure is a very pleasant sounding headphone, and the TF10 is an icon (but perhaps a bit stale compared to the Shure and a bit tinny to some people's ears - though not mine, I always really liked them)


Avoid the XBA-2, but perhaps try the 3 if you get a chance.  The 2 is a bit dead to my ear, and really needs the third driver in the 3 to balance things out.

I'm reasonably new here so I'm sure somebody will chime in with a more educated opinion than mine.

Thanks for the comment!
I do like the shure's for the price. So now I must ask if the SE315 is worth the increase in money?

Anyone heard the velodyne vpulse too?
