Iems for complex multi-layered music

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Hello Guys

 

I am looking for some recommendations for an iem to listen to prog rock, psychedelic rock, stoner, classic rock and some technical extreme metal bands mainly. I currently own a Vsonic R02 Proll. I think its a fun iem to listen to but it seems to me that I am missing out on details while listening to bands like King Crimson or Dillinger Escape Plan.

 

I came up with the following iems.

 

Vsonic GR07 MKII

Vsonic GR07 Bass Edition

Vsonic GR06

Vsonic VSD1

Astrotec AM-800

Etymotic Research HF5

Hifiman Re400

 

I know the prices vary betweeen them but they are all in my range thanks to a discount on GR07s. I would really be glad if people who have experience with these iems can help me out. I am new to this hobby and doesnt have much chance to audition since I am in Turkey.

Nobody likes listening to King Crimson around here? :smile_phones:

The only one in your list I have listened to is the Ety HF5. I use them at work at my desk. I like them - it's a nice, balanced signature leaning toward more detailed - not bass heavy. I'm sorry - I haven't heard the others in your list so I can't make any comparisons.

Thank you for responding billybob. I am leaning towards Ety HF5 based on its reputation for fine detail.
