Need recommendations for in-ear headphones for music in general

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

Hi, 

I used to have a (very old) pair of Bose in-ear headphones. They look like the IE2 that's currently on their website, but without the StayHear tips. Anyway, the cable has detached itself on one of the earpieces, rendering it useless. I really like the sound from this pair, because I like the amount of bass I get with it. I've tried the Sennheiser CX280, but there isn't enough bass, and to me it sounds a bit thin.

 

I'm looking for something with a similar sound profile (bass being quite important) to the Bose but with a lower price tag, around $60-70ish? I listen to rock, indie, classical/soundtracks, a bit of everything really. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks (:

For you, beats or soul might actually work out. I've never heard anything with stronger bass besides JH16.

Hmm, I was hoping to avoid Beats. Would you recommend either the Shure SE215 or maybe one of the solid bass Audio Technica ones? I was looking at Klipsch as well but apparently the S4 II doesn't deliver much bass.

Probably SE215 special edition, if you want something from shure. I haven't heard many solid bass line from Audio Technica, but they do have good reputation.

I think I am going for the Audio Technica CKS77. My only concern now is getting it at a low price from places like ebay or accessoryjack.com

How long did your IE2's last you?

They're not IE2's, they're the Triport IE ones. I'm not sure when exactly they were bought (they were given to me), but I think they must've lasted 3 years? Maybe more..
