best in-ear for 120 dollar??

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 

Hello i want some advice in buying my first good in-ear. (now i have the in-ears that has come with the sgs2 phone)

My budget is 120 dollar. I love bass and clear sound and listen to hip-hop, rap, house.

I have read a lot of the hippo vb but if there are better ones feel free to give me some suggestions.

 

Tanks for the help

I believe there are much better IEM's these days than the Hippo VB though VB has good bass. Check out Hifiman Re-400 they are supposed to be clear or the one I got: The T-Peos H-100. A hybrid IEM with both dynamic driver (for good bass) and a BA driver (for clarity)

If you want bass for those kinds of genre, I wouldn't recommend the RE-400. It has more bass than the rest of the HiFiman line but still not enough for many who listen to rap. I think you can get the GR07 Bass Edition from from lendmeurears for $133. I'd consider it for some excellent, but slightly increased bass: http://www.lendmeurears.com/shopping_cart.php?currency=USD

I wanted to get the GR07BE. The only reason I did not get it is because I'm not a fan of over the ear. I bought a T-Peos H100 instead. Check it out.

oke now i got them almost 4 weeks

i have done 300 hours burning so that's enough i think.

 

for 100 dollars i dont like them, they are very comfi but where is the bass, my in-ears of the sgs2 phone has even more bass and they costs 5 dollar

the sound is so clear that it hurts my ears: sound must be tss tss but is sssshhhh shhhh (you understand?) :D sound stage is indeed great.

for 100 dollar my expectation was higher, just more bass and lower clear sound not so screaming sound in the ears. but tanks any way

 

 

ps: sorry for my  English hope you can understand the texts

 

 

good evening

I had bought the entry level sony in ear monitors for 30 bucks a year ago.

The bass on those were very full and contained a lot of impact, although they were kinda of boomy at times, they OK in almost every genre, they absolutely shined in hip-hop, dub-step, and house. Those little headphones added so much "body" to the music.

 

Here is their flagship bass model for only $123

I think you will be very pleased with these in ear monitors
