I have been around here reading stuff for a few weeks, had passed by a few times before.
Recently I decided to finally spend some money into a good IEM. So...
I don't know exactly what is my type of signature and that is my main problem...
I listen to:
20% POP, nowadays rock
10% blues and new orleans kind of stuff
15% John Mayer, Jack Johnson
20% Classic rock, from Boston to Led Zeppelin... Queen
20% Metal, from Ozzy to Blind Guardian... Metallica and Iron Maiden
So I think i can put myself in the balance zone for a IEM signature. But i'm afraid that i'll have no bass punch at all... I want that warm or pucnhy bass when that is needed for the sound to be fun.
With that i would like good highs for my Metal and clarity for that classic and blues stuff.
It seems that I am asking to much, but ALSO i have small ear canals so the nozzle can't be to big.
With that said I am beetwen:
Shure se215 for its value and wamr bass and mids and seems to have a small nozzle.
-Am afraid it isn't balanced enough.
Vsonic GR07 MK2 for its balance and lots of acessories.
-Am afraid the nozzle is to big and it doesn't bring the punchy or warm bass when needed.
I am open to go as far as $200, but can't go that only $40-50 extra bucks over the $200.
If someone with similar tastes good show your thoughs about my concerns on the IEM options i showed or give opnions on other IEM's that would be great for my profile that would be the best help ever.
Hope I can have a good experience with my new IEM and come back to review it from the POV of a newcomer to this hobby.
EDIT: Gonna use it with my Galaxy Nexus and work desktop (not great or ideal, but is what I got)
