Planning to get my first IEM, please help me to Choose from the List

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 

Hi,

 

Am planning to get my first IEM, please help me to Choose from the List below

 

My Affordable Range:

VSonic GR99

Soundmagic E30

Audio Technica ATH CKN50

Monoprice 8320 / MEP-933

Klipsch Image S3
Sony XB30 EX
Sennheiser CX 175

JBL J33

 

A lil extra which I dont' mind spending on:

VSonic VC02

Astrotec AM-90

SteelSeries Flux In-Ear

 

Features that am looking for are:

Crisp and Clear Sound Quality

Wide Sound stage

Tight Bass, no extra bass

Does no prefer a V sound

It should be light and comfortable to wear for long period

Good Noise Isolation

 

I listen to all genre of songs from Trance/ Heavy Metal to pure Classical/Indian Instrumental.So being a novice I've no idea on which to choose from...I may also be wrong with wat Ive mentioned in my preferences, the only knowledge abt IEM for me are through articles and blogs..so do help me to get the best possible from this list.

 

Am very much impressed with ATH CKN50, are they as good as VSonic VC02..?

Soundmagic e30 is my favorite of all that you have listed. It might have a little more sub bass than you might like but it is very balanced and detailed, and plays all genres of music excellently, not to mention they have an exceptional ergonomic over the ear fit.

If you can stretch a little, sennheiser cx880 wouldn't disappoint.

Well, we kinda do. We can see that the OP hasn't been on Head-fi since 12/4/13. So, seemingly long gone for whatever the reason. Just sayin' :)

Maybe this poor guy got his spirit crushed because nobody responded to his thread, so he's been living in the woods eating wild berries and s**t, only to return to civilization to find out that I gave him the advice he's been looking for

I just bought the astrotec am90 they are midcentric but do have enough very tight bass response. They are extremely smooth roll off nicely at the high end and are very easy to listen to all around. But since its a ba driver you need a very good seal to get good bass response so you probably should buy sony hybrids with them because stock silicone aren't great and the foam tips will wear out. The monoprice also have a midcentric sound sig. Though i  dont think there build quality compares, the am90 are built like tanks.But the monoprices are $8 you should probably go to ljokers post or his website, the headphone list .com for great info
