im quite new here, been lurking and reading alot.
Ive decided to take the plunge into in ear monitors / earphones, my first ever was the RE-400
Amazing sound quality, however it lacked 'oomph', virtually no bass, i like bass.
I then purchased the Brainwavz M4 great IEM, great vocal clarity, however lacked bass, both sub-and depth in it.
I then received the Dre tours as a gift, which were much better in the bass department however not exactly what i was looking for (sounded muddy and underwater), if the muddy-ness was gone it wouldve been the perfect earphone (with a $100 price reduction).
i was going to purchase the Hippo VB when the man at the shop told me theyve discontinued them at the shop because virtually every pair they sold were returned because of a faulty left ear piece.
I was really set on getting the VB however i think i need to look somewhere else for durability.
I would like a earphone with great quality and quantity of bass, and sub bass as i mainly listen to aggressive hip hop / bass dominated tracks
also vocals are important!
i was looking at the M2 however i dont think it has as much raved reviews as the Hippo VB, and lacks somewhat with bass extension.
My price range is $50-150
any help is much appreciated!!
