Hi mark2410.. Thanks for the reply but is there any other IEM at my budget?? I would also be buying the E12MB... So should i buy a more expensive IEM rather than buying the RHA's and E12?. In that case i'd stretch by budget to around $200ish.

My primary source is the FIIO X1.

You should check out Dunu DN-1000.

ooooh you should never say you can stretch your budget around here, now you can get better if you spend more but you begin a notable decline in price to performance.  given i think yoru fairly new to audio the 750 is more likely to be the safer bet.  many new peeps find the mid centric sound of somethings to be not what they wanted at all, a V shaped or big bass, big treble sound is mroe dramatic and boombastic.  the 750 gives you a bit of that, with good clarity and its excenetly made.  v pretty too so its a great entry product till you know more about what you like and haw you hear things in relation to others.  the GR07 is another one that is a great entry or generalist around thins price.  oh and the dn-1000 too. 

 

at their level thought its much less about whats "better" and more about whats better fro you

I got the MA-750i and was a near-beginner in mobile audio when I did. My source is a Sony Xperia Z3C phone, FLAC files played through the Sony Music (formerly Walkman) app, the best-sounding app on that phone IME. Let me tell you, the MA-750s are amazing. I get to enjoy the grand audio treatment even on my commute. A year ago I wouldn't have thought that was even possible with just a phone and earbuds. I have no desire to look for anything else, although I haven't tried much of anything else in quality headphones. On negatives, I don't like the cord much, don't use the mike much and the remote is almost useless on Android; an initial pair was defective and the return process was a bit of a hassle, but RHA were very gracious in the end and the replacement pair is fine. Those issues don't matter to me given the sound experience.

 

Piece of advice from beginner to beginner although you may already be aware of this, but fit is all-important; IEMs will simply not work if not fitted perfectly. For instance you will get no bass. I use RHA's foams for now - no issue. Glad they fit because there's only one size in the box. When I run out of them I will get Complys. Don't believe the reviews, including the What Hifi (ahem... professional) review, that say the MA-750s need 2 weeks of burn-in. It's utter BS, they sound fine out of the box. Though they do seem to get even better over time.

I am not into too much bass, i prefer neutral sound to the more sparkling highs and boomy bass. And FYI you don't get the DUNU products here in India:(. That's the drawback.. Much of the names mentioned here as well as other hifi forums are not available.. As for now i think i'd better stick to the RHA's. Thanks a lot for the help. :ksc75smile:
