It seems like a lot of people on here want the world's greatest headphone for 25 bucks, and I'm one of them (lol)
The thing about it is, everyone's taste in music and sound is different, and there's many different sets of ears that all hear differently.
I don't like when people ask "which one is better?" because honestly unless a iem or headphone completely destroys another phone in every aspect, it's not "better".
There are phones that are better for certain genres of music, for commuting, for running, for sonic accuracy, for at home listening, for durability, and on and on and on...
I think that's why I've become so fascinated with personal audio phones and accessories. The perfect one depends on the circumstances, and what we plan on listening to, where we are using them, how we use them, and so on.
I used to think the Pistons were the greatest headphone in the world for 25 bucks, but that was 40 pairs of IEMs ago... FML
Truth is I don't regret a single purchase (well maybe a couple)
If you're looking for the greatest headphone for 25, 50, 75, 150 or more bucks, welcome to the club and sorry about your wallet. But please, when you ask for suggestions be specific. There is a perfect iem for your needs (for now), and a bunch of people on head fi that will help you spend all your money (lol).
This is a great post!
