As stated by the title I'm looking for the most comfortable IEMs to date. I owned the UE700's and yet they irritate the inside of my ear canal and gave me small headaches (from memory) and no matter what sized ear buds I used that came with the earphones they'd always find a way to fall out of my ears after a short periods of time. Therefore Iv'e decided to give them to my brother if he puts some money towards me getting a pair of Sony MDR-1R's.
I'm prepared to spend around $100sh give or take a few but I'm going to be using the Sony MDR-1R's as my main headphones so I'm not prepared to spend a whole lot..
After using the UE700's I wana give an around the ear design a shot becasue the UE700's to me stayed in my ears longer when wearing them around the ear. however no matter whether you wear them around the ear or not if they are comfortable it doesn't really fase me the slightest. If I can sleep with them they'd be great.
sound wise, I just want a really good all rounder that I can handle anything I throw at it. Iv'e listened to the Sony MDR-1R's and I feel like I want something similar to that. I didn't really like the sg of the UE700's, the are really good for some genres however when listening to rock/hardcore or even electronic music to my ears they missed the impact in the sound.
EDIT: I haven't listened to the UE700's for a while so please don't take offence to what I said.
I really like the look of the Shure SE215LTD's but I don't know whether I'd like them.
Iv'e also read somewhere that the Audeo Phonak series are extreamely comfortable however Iv'e heard that they are closing down.
The HiFiMAN RE-400 looking very promising but unsure whether It's what Im looking for.
My sister is getting me a pair of Sony XBA-C10's to use for the gym, maybe they'll satisfy my needs..
anyways I hope you can help me out in some shape or form.
