Switching from headphones - IEM suggestion under $250?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

So I have just decided to switch from headphones to IEMs because headphones have been matting down my hair and the hair in that area has felt odd (so I don't want to lose my hair). I am an avid gamer that plays long sessions at a time on my desktop at home. I am looking for a set of IEMs that would best suit the type of music I enjoy. The two major types of music I enjoy are house/electro music, and alternative rock music. 

 

Brands I have currently been looking at and am interested in are:

 

- Westone

- Sennheiser (love their headphones, but their bass seemed lacking)

- Shure

 

If you have any suggestions please let me know, I would greatly appreciate it.

 

As a side note, is using a 3.5 mm jack extension cable on IEMs okay to do so they have a comfortable reach from my desktop to head? (I'm fairly tall)

 

Thanks.

I'll go out on a limb here and drop 2 of my favs based on my hearing(Me owning them is another story) on you:

TPeos H-200
CKS1000.

Thanks I'll check them out.

 

Also, does anyone know how the Sennheiser ie60 would perform with house/electro and alternative rock music?
