I have never owned/tested custom iems. I need advice on how to choose the right pair, since they can be fairly expensive.
I have been looking at Ultimate Ear models, Cosmic Ears, etc.
What brands are very highly regarded?
What are the best models out there?
What specs am I looking for?
How do I get fitted?
Some info about me : (please let me know what else I need to list in order for you to help recommend the perfect pair)
- I want for LISTENING. I do not perform (at least not yet). I do have equipment for making music, would there be a pair that would sound good listening for pleasure, and listening to what I am creating? IE mixing, etc.
- Genres : experimental, drone, ambient, dark electronic, dark techno, acoustic, noise, metal
- Budget : ~$500? Maybe a little more.
- Use : smart phone, computer, turntable/receiver, synth
