Earphone Recommendations 200$~

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 

Hello!

Budget: 200$ but listen to what i will say.

Use: on bus, flights and running.

Notes: wii be connected only to my Nexus 4 and i will listen to only youtube through them, so the earphones doesn't have to be 200$ if you think that on Youtube music those earphone model for 100$ is the best for me because I don't gonna get any benfits from more expensive ones.

I am listening to a lot of genres, I don't listen to anything particular. The bass is very important to me but the mids and the high important too. I have looked on an endless earphones and I couldn't get to a final decision.

Please help...

Thanks

Tamir

Read this: Multi-IEM Review - 288 IEMs compared (Ultimate Ears 600 / 600vi Added 07/05/13 p.725)

 

HiFiMAN, Vsoinc, UE, and Shure are all good brands with IEMs for your price range.

Ok thank you I will read it but I wii be connected only to my Nexus 4 and i will listen to only youtube through them so what do you think should be the budget? 200$? or less?

post #4 of 20

Less.  Also check out the Sleek Audio SA1 which is rather unique, and can be had for $40 on Amazon (MSRP $80, anymore is a rip off.)

so what do you think my budget should be? 100$? 50$? or 200$ it's ok for me to pay that but if I won't get any benfit from that on youtube from 100$ headphone I won't do it.

That's the point, as YouTube doesn't have very good compression on audio, so $50 should be a good start.  And for $40 the SA1 is really a steal, plus you can return it in 30 days for Amazon.  From what I have heard another good pick will be HiFiMAN RE-400, but it is not on discount yet.

and if my music will be in better quality but I still using only my Nexus 4, should I higher the budget?

post #8 of 20

Sure but that also depends on what bit rate you are listening.  I made a lot of mistakes early buying a lot of crap IEMs, but I honestly can't recommend anything until 1, have a base line from you with a pair of decent IEM; 2, a fixed budget.  I think the SA1 is a good start since it is a $80 IEM at the price of $40, plus you can tune it with the ports to your liking.  I think the cost is not too deep for an experiment, and once you can tell me what you like or don't like about the sound, then we can move forward on your future selection.

 

p.s. the Nexus 4 is a good source player.

The $100 RE400 is a good choice an is well within your budget.

I want for running something like the SE215 SE315 westone 2, the SA1 not for sale in my country, so which IEM should I buy for 100$? for 150$? and 200$? let's say all my music through nexux 4 and all my music is 320K bit rate, I can benfit from 200$ budget? and which IEM should I go with them? SE315 SE215 Westone 2 Other Suggstions?

post #11 of 20
Well depends, personally I reckon the Westone 2 sounds the best but the Shure Se215 are significantly cheaper and the sound whilst not as good as the westones is a lot of fun, haven't tried the se315 so dunno about it,

1. Do you have other suggestions?

2. the Westone 2 will be good only with my Nexus 4 without amp?

3. If I don't using loseless music but lets say 320 K bit rate music I will get a great benfit from 200$ headphopnes or should I go with 100$ or 150$ headphones?

post #13 of 20

Just pick something sub-$100 from the IEM review that is sold in your area and get over it.

But can you please answer my questions? because it OK for me to pay 200$ if I will get good benfit.

At this point I would say no, as you don't even have a baseline on what you like or don't like.  So spending more at this point will not necessary be better for you.
