Hi from Tokyo

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hey I was recommended to this site from a friend whom is on here, so here I am.

I've just recently got into headphones, I'm a gear junky so it's not hard for me to add a new obsession, and I started out with v-moda. Originally I had the vibrato and they were great but then out of nowhere they just stopped working so I sent them to v-moda and they replaced the Vibrato's with a fresh pair of M-80's.

There is a problem, the M-80's hurt my left hear a lot after about two hours of use and then I can use them for shorter and shorter periods of time unless I stay away for a whole day! And being the patient guy that I am when I was waiting for my replacements I bought a second pair of m-80's thinking that I'd just sell the new ones when they arrive and everyone will be happy (me).

Now I have two pairs of M-80's for sale and I'm looking for a good pair of IE's in the $200-250 range, any recommendations?
Music: I listen to classic rock, blues, house music, hip hop, alternative rock - I would say that spend the most time listening to. Hip hop.
Sound: I like the natural sounding guitar and fantastic vocal reproduction on the M-80, but I find the bass not deep or rich, it's more punchy. When I listen to Stevie Ray Vaughan Little Wing I feel like I'm sitting right in front of him at a blues bar, but when I listen to hip hop I know that I'm missing the full rich deep bass. Ideally I'd like both and the Vibrato's where great.

Any thoughts or suggestions would be welcome.

I've now got it nailed down to the Westone UM2, Atomic Floyd super darts, B&W C5. Any suggestions?

Well, if you are open to new ideas, I would recoment the Sennheiser IE80. I have them for more then a year and just love them. The bass is rich and deep (you can acctualy adjust the amount of bass), midrange is great and have a very big soundstage for IEMs. And they fit your budget.

I suggest coming to the Fujiya Avic Tokyo headphone festival on the last weekend of October, meeting all of us and trying a crapload of headphones. How about that?

I'd love to but over here, Tokyo, the IE80's are out of my price range ($200-250max)

Yeah my friend that is a member here suggested that, and I'll likely attend.

I can't promises that I won't buckle under the pressure and show up with something new...

It is the other way around -- you need to show up either with no money or a few thousand dollars.... :wink_face:
