Would like advice on some all rounder IEM's with decent isolation at the £100 - £150 ($160 -...

Hi all,

 

I'm looking for some IEM's that I could use both on public transport (about and hour a day) and at work. I listen to a fairly big range of music so something that's a good all rounder would be nice.

 

My last IEM's were the Klipsch Image S4's which I liked before they broke if that is of any help.

 

I'm buying from the UK so any stores from the USA would need international shipping. I've noticed a lot of headphones are a bit more expensive in the UK as well.

 

Thanks for any advice.

I'm definitely going to recommend the Brainwavz R1. A wonderful pair at come with an unexpectedly great performance. I've listened to all kinds of music on them (hip-hop, reggae, rock, dubstep, electronic and even old classic) and haven't ever been disappointed. Tough build apart from the cable with broke a few days ago after over 6 months of very bad care (I've stepped on them, hit them against the wall through my bag, hit them against the gym locker and slept with them in on countless occasions).

They come with quite a few tips including a set of Comply foams which worked the best for me. They also come with a nice hard case to store them in as well as a large adaptor and an airplane one too.

Give them a look and let me know if you have any questions.

Thanks for the reply. These look quite big. Are they comfortable? An issue is that I have quite small ears and from reading some reviews, they seem to be suited towards bigger ears.

Yeah they're made such because they're supposed to be worn with the cable coming from behind/over the ear as opposed to straight down.

They don't weigh much at all and the only discomfort that occurs is after having them on for hours and even that if you have glasses like I do.

The comply tips work a lot better than the silicons because of the better fit. They don't move around a lot with the comply tips even when you run.

I guess it comes down to how big or small your ears are compared to mine, right? :P

To be honest, I think they'd do just fine for ears of all sizes.
