Looking for replacements for the old Sennheisers

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Hello...i'm new to all this, but i'm not sure what to look for when shopping for some quality earbuds/IEM's. I got a pair of Sennheiser's many years ago, and i don't even know what model they are (may be CX300). I do know, they're awesome. Mids/Highs are so great, and the bass is just right...nothing muffled. i listen to all kinds of music on my iPod, and even use them when playing guitar.

 

Now, i bought the highly recommended Klipsch SA4i II...they sucked, IMHO. hope i'm not offending anybody, but they're were worst than the earbuds that came with my Roku remote control. I returned them as defects because the sound was so muffled together. there was no separate mids/highs/bass like i can hear in my Sennheisers. Was really shocked. 

 

After reading reviews, i'm thinking of the Shure SE215...has anybody had any experience with these? Has anybody used the Senn CX300's, and could tell me if the sound if comparable? My budget is about $100-150. I really appreciate any help.

Yamaha's EPH-100.

 

Warm, but detailed.

Good separation and nice sub bass response.

Isolation is very good.

Metal made.

 

Great all-rounders in my opinion!

 

Best Luck!

Thanks for the advice. I researched the Yamaha's, and from what you & everbody says, they may be what i'm looking for. There were a lot of "EPH-100 vs SE215" articles, so I think i'm in the right direction! It's just hard to know, if i can't test any of them myself.

 

I'm afraid to buy anything because of the issue I had with the Klipsch. Heard about this great sound quality & wonderful bass. To me, it was extremely muddy. Hope they were just defective. Im just looking for that perfect pair of earbuds thats like my car system with separates for mids, tweeters for the highs & a subwoofer for the bass...all in my ear. Asking for too much? LOL. Thanks again!!

UPDATE...so i got the Yamaha EPH-100, and i love them! At first, I was expecting a huge difference from my old Sennheiser's. I sat for a while switching between earphones, listening to all kinds of music. After a bit, I could totally tell a difference & it was awesome. Guess I really didn't know how music should sound. So true about "warm, but detailed". i've been so used to a very bright & over crisp sound...if that makes sense...just my newbie 2 cents.

 

I really appreciate your advice Me x3!
