on the whole, i'd say my favorite overall are the hd650, very very very very closely followed by the he400. the thing is, i just love the bass on the he400. it's perfect. altho the hd650 seems to go lower, the impact of the 400 is swag. amperiors are also very nice, but they are closed so soundstage suffers---i do like a big soundstage.

 

 

i listen to a lot of hip hop (rap), rock (alt/indie/punk), and club music (electronic, mainstream radio stuff, etc). classical occasionally. i do like some vocal tracks but not many. for example, i enjoy skyfall by adele, but i hate all of her other tracks. idk why.

 

i own the dunu tridents, which i do like, but not as detailed/textured/extended/spacious as the other three (obviously). basically worse in every way, but i still like them.

also have the philips she3590. awesome for the price, but mids are a bit lacking for me.

also the jvc ha fx101. waaay to bassy for me. if 650s have a veil, jvc sounds like i have a carpet on my head.

 

 

so i guess overall, i like neutral with a hint of warmth. my favorite headphones (hd650 and he400) both follow that sig, and so do other hps that i like (dunus, amps).

 

tldr: based on my tastes and collection, what would you recommend?

 

essentially i'm just looking for a cheap pair of iems for school and bus rides and sleeping. my fullsized cans obvi cant use in public, and amps arent portable enough. my current earbuds are okay, but from what ive read, if i invest a bit more (around $60), i can get sound that approaches that of my full size cans/equal to my amps.

 

 

atm i'm leaning towards the vsd3s. they have better bass than the havis, so i'm guessing they'll be a bit warmer. at the same time, ppl keep saying the havis excel at rock and acoustic....

 

so i guess i'm defo gonna have to wait for the vsd5, and see if it bridges the gap in any way. plus it'll be better, amirite

As KC06A owner I would not recommend them to you, the sound stage is really narrowed and it's one of the hugest issues they have.

Also the lack of isolation due to the short stem are making them rather unsuitable for public transportation.

Additionally it's rather fatiguing to listen to them.

 

They are good IEM's for pop music though.

Don't we have any Malaysian or Chinese/Taiwanese people in this thread that could try the Intopic Jazz I57? 

Just found them in my drawer while cleaning up. These are still remarkable for the price. Even for the tips alone.

Bassheads rejoice! Bluedio seems to have put out a Bluetooth 4.1 Headphone that is VERY nicely priced at $37.

No aptX, but it somehow looks to be an upgrade over their R+ $100+ model (which is a bassy mess)

For those genres? I thought the Havi was lacking in the bass department.

The Vivo XE800 needs more attention IMO. It literally is a GR07 upgraded, looks gorgeous, and fits like a dream.

 

The fact it is on a promotion for $50 here (Normally $100+) is just too good a deal to pass up on these, especially if you've never heard a Vsonic GR07.

I'd be all over them, but I really don't want to deal with an agent. I know I'm being lazy, but I am lazy.

Yep, same for me. I've been really interested ever since you reviewed them, but I don't want to have to deal with a mediator.

Mistertao.com is easy for Taobao. Far easier than using a service like Tenso for Japanese orders.

 

Just copy the link into their search engine, hit add to cart, use visa or mastercard (uses Alipay so its secure), and choose Singapore Post. Total price after commission and shipping fees would be around $57.

 

Unless you are willing to wait for a possible ebay/aliexpress seller or spend $99+ elsewhere, that's the best price in the world right now.

Sometimes the site is acting weird to me. I tried just for fun to order a vsonic vsd3s and Havi b3, but both times a error message appeared which said that items containing the words "sonic" and "pro" are banned from sale.

 

The vivo page is working though:

The trick to those "banned" ones is to add it to the cart before it does that. The items themselves aren't actually banned, its just a keyword causing an issue.
