Hi I'm deciding to purchase my first real IEMS. I've never actually quite listened to music with good IEMs yet and now I think it's finally time. My head does get a bit too warm from headphones and IEMs are more convenient for times when you're just laying in bed and so on.
I'll be mainly using these earphones for listening to music genres like instrumentals, classical, hip-hop, jpop and kpop. I plan on using these IEMs once I manage to get my hands on a portable MP3/FLAC player. Aside from that I'll be mainly using these on my laptop/desktop. I'm not too big on bass just as long as it's more natural sounding like with my Sennheiser HD 598s. I prefer the sound to be crisp and detailed since I listen to pretty mellow stuff like Nujabes. It would be a big plus if the IEMs were comfortable since I noticed that some earphones do dig into your ear canal too deep.
But yeah these are basically my standards so far:
- Natural sounding bass
- Great listening for genres like jpop, kpop, jazz, instrumentals, hip-hop, and classical.
- Desktop/Laptop with USB Headphone Amp/DAC which I know won't help much for the IEMS.
- iPod or MP3/FLAC Player.
- Movies, TV Shows, and anime with flac audio.
