Hello to all,
Man where do I start...
I have so many help/recommendations related things in my head, it's not even funny.
I guess it'd have to be one thread at a time!
A bit of background info:
My ears were spoiled back when I got myself a pair of AKG K702s on a sale as a recommendation from a friend.
Since then I've been selling all my old gear.
Wanna keep my ears happy and at the same time reduce my collection down to 2 pairs.
1 which stays always at home and one that goes on the road with me.
Obviously, for me at least, the K702s will always be at home for listening to my vinyls, CDs, TV, etc.
(Got 2 kids and I only get around to doing these things when they are asleep.)
I'd like the other pair to be in-ear for the main reason that I commute quite a long distance from home to work by bicycle and they are the only type I can fit under my helmet. So the in-ear ones will serve me as an office pair, a commuting pair and for holidays and such. Now, they need to have soundstage (I hope I am not abusing the term cause I'm newbie to the terminology and I am really not good using terminology to describe what my ears experience) comparable to the K702s cause I absolutely love their sound. I live in Finland and it would be nice to get recommendations for things that I can get online inside the EU so I do not have to pay customs or even better models that retail in Finland/Helsinki area. My budget is up to 400€ maybe even go up to 500€ for something exceptional.
To sum up things...
2. Sound performance comparable to K702
4. Sold in EU or retail in Finland/Helsinki
5. I listen to all shorts of music but mainly Rock, Heavy Metal, Punk, Reggae/SKA
ps. I've checked some top 10 audiophile and best lists but I rather hear experiences of passionate people.
Thank you very much in advance for your help.
